From Crystal Mountain:

Author Kim Kircher will be signing copies of her new book, “The Next 15 Minutes,” at Crystal Mountain Resort on December 17. The public book signing will be followed by a private reception with the author at the Bullwheel Restaurant and Bar.
“The Next 15 Minutes” is a memoir that takes readers on a wild ride of salvation, trying to find answers to a scary diagnosis on the ski slopes. She utilizes her training on the slopes to survive her most terrible crisis yet- waiting for a liver transplant to save her husband’s life.
Kim Kircher is a Crystal Mountain ski patroller, author and wife of Crystal Mountain President John Kircher. She has logged over six hundred hours of explosives control and has been awarded a National Ski Patrol Purple Merit Star for saving a life, as well as a Green Merit Star for saving a life in an arduous situation.
