‘Literally Saved My Life:’
It’s about 7 o’clock on a Tuesday morning in June and Ashley McAuliffe is getting her 11-year-old son, Aiden, ready for his last day of school.
“We’ve got about like 10 minutes before we’re going to go. So why don’t you brush your teeth,” McAuliffe suggests.
“Okay,” replies Aiden.
“Thanks,” she says.
Growing up in Steamboat Springs, McAuliffe started ski racing when she was a kid. This eventually led to freestyle snowboarding, competing in the halfpipe and multiple injuries.
