Mark Mackay is a country music star in the making, but his background as a ski rep makes him the perfect new business episode. His road to Nashville included stints with Rossignol, Dynastar, and Atomic, all by the time he was 20. He was the head sales rep in California when Atomic started exploding, he had a dream job, he was young, and he left it all for the lucrative world of medical sales. Soon after, he had a life-changing epiphany on a paddleboard and, within an hour, quit his job, broke his lease, and went all in on being a country music star, and so far, it’s been working.

Andy Hetzel is the Rick Kane of snowboarding. Hailing from Arizona, Andy’s first love was skateboarding, then punk rock. This eventually led to Andy finding snowboarding and moving his life to Breckenridge. He competed early and often and achieved pro status, but Hetzel won’t be remembered for contests, well maybe as the reigning World Mogul Champion. But, outside of that bump title, Andy and the skate-influenced crew he rode with, you know, the Palmer and Ranquet types, helped create the derelict culture of the sport when it wasn’t considered a sport, it was a lifestyle. It’s a fun history lesson, and Utah legend Benny Pelligrino asks the Inappropriate Questions.

Nick McNutt’s ski bum story is one of the best. After ten years of dirtbagging it, Nick became a big-name pro skier and one of the faces of TGR movies. When Nick moved to Whistler at 17, he quickly became the skier other skiers were talking about because of his huge switch landings…something that wasn’t too common back in the day. While he filmed with smaller production companies, TGR’s 100K Collab contest was the thing that changed his life…and he didn’t even win. On the podcast, we talk about his journey to pro skierdom, getting buried in an avalanche with a faulty beacon, the aftermath, and much more. One of Nick’s oldest, loose-cannon friends asks the Inappropriate Questions.

Logan Pehota comes from ski royalty bloodlines. His dad, Eric Pehota, is a ski mountaineering pioneer, a badass in the big mountains. Logan's journey to ski stardom took him from racing to slope-style to the Freeride World Tour to where he is today, dropping the biggest cliffs and huge tricks in the backcountry. If you've seen a Matchstick Productions film lately, you know how giant Logan goes.

Colby West is a big personality in skiing and has been for almost a decade...but didn’t start skiing until he was a teenager. When most people were getting into the sport, Colby lived an isolated life where he spent his free time mimicking different voices and spending the rest of his time in the woods…And then, he found skiing through a school program. Colby went all in on the sport, working all year to pay for High North Ski Camp. When he got there, he found a mentor in Shane Szocs, who opened so many doors for him in the pro ski world. On the podcast, we talk about dropping out of college to live in his car to make the ski dream happen, medaling at X games and other events, his vocal talents, his "Ski Musical" and so much more.

Parkin Costain is a child prodigy, a kid born to pro level athlete parents, Parkin was in the backcountry before he could walk. He was learning to read lines, manage risk and enjoy adventure at a young age and then, at the ripe age of 7, started competing in big mountain contests…Those evolved into film contests, sponsors, and a career filming with TGR.

Gerry Lopez may be the most legendary guest I’ve ever had on the podcast, so it’s fitting that I kick off Season 8 with Gerry. This OG surf god single-handedly invented what relaxed style looks like, and it was all inspired by his other passion, yoga. Gerry is famous for so many things, but his legacy will be remembered most for pioneering Pipeline on a board shorter than ever seen before, and then leaving it all for Oregon and snowboarding. On the podcast, we talk about Hawaii, localism, counterculture, Hollywood, and a lot more.

Gerry Lopez Show Notes:

Ingrid Backstrom ushered in a new era of women’s big mountain skiing when her award-winning segment in Matchstick Productions’ “Yearbook” set the ski world on fire.

AJ Kitt is a US Ski Team Legend and was the face of US Downhill at a time when the US Skiing’s image desperately needed a re-fresh from the Bill Johnson era.

Dave Moe is the most unique, eclectic guest I’ve had on the podcast, and he and his brother may have had more of an impact on the sport of skiing than anyone else I’ve had on the show. The Moe’s started Powder Magazine, and Dave Moe was the gonzo journalist who traveled the world in the name of Powder. On the podcast, we talk about early Seattle skiing, his “Screw Loose” alter egos, founding Powder Magazine, sales, marketing, travel, and general weirdness. Jake Moe makes a couple of appearances to clear some things up on this history lesson of an episode.

Tanner Hall is arguably the greatest all-around skier of our time. He’s a rare athlete who’s found success in the moguls, in the streets, in the parks, in the X Games, in the backcountry, in the movies, and on the Freeride World Tour. It doesn’t get more complete than that, and the crazy thing is that now, at 40, he’s skiing better than he ever has. While that’s a bold statement, when the new edit, XL drops this week, you’ll know what I’m talking about. On the podcast, we discuss his relationship, his injury list, XL, what the future holds, and much more. Wiley Miller asks the Inappropriate Questions.

Nate Holland is a born and bred Idaho boy who grew up in a log cabin and spent his time hunting, fishing, skateboarding, and skiing and then he found snowboarding, and life changed. Nate was hellbent on making it in the halfpipe and big air world of professional snowboarding and racked up 20k in credit card, infuriating his co-signing family. But freestyle was never going to be the route for Nate, and when he pivoted to boardercross, he found success beyond his wildest imagination.

Andrew is a corporate professional with a sick resume who’s currently manufacturing a climbing and surfing career... complete with travel budgets, retainer, and opportunity. When you look at Andrew, he’s part athlete, part explorer, part humanitarian, part activist, and an influencer. While Andrew is not a pro-level athlete, he does have an incredible story, athletic chops, and the marketing mind to package himself and his “Between Worlds Project” (that will make him the first African American to climb the seven summits and seven volcanic summits), as an ambassador to watch. The podcast talks about his incredible story that took him from Detroit, Georgia, Hawaii, Maine, Mass, and beyond.

When Ashley Battersby came on the ski scene, a new era of style was unleashed upon the women’s slopestyle and big air.  Growing up in Chicago gave Ash the confidence to develop one of the top rail games in the streets, and then she transferred her skate tricks to the ski world. Her move to Park City was her education in air awareness- which led to her being the first woman to land a Switch 10 in competition. On the podcast, we talk about her meteoric rise, sponsors, money, her battle at the X Games, and the injuries that ultimately ended her career. Ashley doesn’t do many interviews, and it was almost like she disappeared from the scene when she retired, so catching up with this pioneer was cool. Her brother Ty asks the Inappropriate Questions.

Roy Tuscany is back, and part 2 with Roy is different than any podcast or interview he’s done before. This episode isn’t about Roy’s story of coming back from a life-altering injury and starting the High Fives Foundation; we did that in episode 49. This week, we talk about things like what it’s like being the first person to offer an injured person hope after a transformative injury, how difficult that is, what the cost of a spinal injury is, how one pays for that, and a lot of the things able-bodied people don’t think about. High Fives Athlete Trevor Kennison asks the Inappropriate Questions.

Roy Tuscany Show Notes:

3:00:  Does he wish he wasn’t injured, the pain of life, rude people, and telling his story so much.
