Anna Segal came to America with a dream of ski greatness.  This determined Aussie had some raw talent, but was never the best skier on the mountain, but she outworked everyone.  The combination of the talent she had and the work she put in to develop that talent even further, took her to the top.  And while there were a lot of tears and breaks along the way,  Anna made her dreams come true.  Now Anna is at a different phase of her career and we talk about it all.

Russell Winfield is a legendary snowboarder.  He came up on the East Coast and lived a pretty charmed life.  From his comfortable upbringing in Connecticut, he went to private school in the city and lived a double life as a snowboarder.  And snowboarding took over and took Russell all over the place…just like he is on the podcast.  We talk race, snowboarding, choices, and life.  There will be a part 2.

Callum Pettit’s early life was spent in the shadows of his little brother’s pro ski career.  While the brothers were a package deal for sponsors, Sean Pettit was the draw.  Eventually, Cal and Sean’s sponsorship paths went separate ways, which left Cal figuring out what was next.....Which was new sponsors and a blue collar career compared to Sean’s white collar lifestyle.  Throughout it all, there was never any drama between Cal and Sean and it’s cool to hear the story from both sides.  This podcast is Cal’s version.

Robin Van Gyn has been a pro snowboarder for over a decade.  She didn’t get on a snowboard until she was 16 and it was full speed ahead from there.  From riding the Olympic Park in college to graduating to Backcountry riding, Robin is one of those people that bring an attitude that’s always fun.  She’s one of those rare people that raises the stoke level every time.  On the podcast we talk a lot about gender, inclusion, and what it took to make it.  Hana Beaman takes care of the Inappropriate Questions

Tom Wallisch is first return guest to The Powell Movement and there’s a reason for that…..He’s Tom Wallisch…..He sits on the board of directors for the US Ski and Snowboard Team, he’s all about giving back to the sport, he’s a living legend, and even as he’s gotten older, he’s kept his finger on the pulse of all ski media while continuing to  create his own.

Mike Douglas is a living legend in the ski industry.  He’s known in the ski world as “The Godfather”, he was one of the behind the scenes leaders of the New Canadian Air Force, a group that takes credit for the development of the first modern twin tip.  Nowadays, he’s still a paid, pro skier but his focus is on filmmaking and his production company, Switchback Entertainment, has been killing it for over a decade.  We talk about it all on the podcast.

No event compares to Red Bull Rampage.  If I tried to describe how insane it was, I wouldn’t be able to do it justice.  What I was able to do was talk to 12 riders, and some legends to get the inside scoop on the venue, the athletes and the history of an event everyone must see in person at least once.

Ryan Runke has an insane resume but his path to becoming a successful sports agent is as far from traditional as it gets.  Runke looks different, acts different, and has done things his way for a long time and it seems to be working.  On the podcast we talk his team sports days, transitioning to a dirtbag team manager and who morphed into a professional agent to the actin sports stars.  They don’t make many like Runke...

Ben Ferguson is not your typical half pipe rider. In a world where riders used to ride every type of terrain, the athletes today seem more specialized, especially the competition athletes.  But Ben only competes because he can, He's a snowboarder first, who has the talent in the pipe that generates exposure, sponsorship dollars and everything else that goes along with being an Olympic level rider.  The cool thing about Ben is he doesn’t care about any of that, he’s all about the riding, man.

Pro Skier Sean Pettit’s career started with a move from Quebec to Whistler.  From there, he became a child prodigy, the freeride kid who could do anything on his skis.  We pick up our conversation from 2016 (I include 10 minutes of our old conversation for background) and talk about his focus from skiing to snowboarding, injury, his lifestyle clothing brand and more.

Angel Collinson was born into the ski world.  She grew up in Snowbird employee housing, where she honed her race skills enough to barely not make the US Ski Team.  With racing over, college and big mountain skiing competitions took over.  Skiing won.  Over the years there have been a lot of women who have pushed the envelope on snow but Angel transcends gender….she’s just a bad ass skier who charges harder than anyone these past few years…guy or girl.  Her story is not what you expect…..

Mike Yoshida’s photography career started as a skateboard dirtbag in Alaska and then he made his way down to the Lower 48.  He’s spent seasons riding Baker and getting to know the NW, the snowboard scene and the people involved in it.  His summers at Mt Hood turned into a photo gig at K2 he parlayed that into gigs with Snowboarder and Transworld.  Today, he is the Photo Editor of Snowboarder Magazine, a dream job for anyone who likes to slide sideways.  On the podcast, we talk about the road to his desk.

Mike Ranquet is part of a rare breed of athlete (for lack of better term) who’s a legend in his sport but never became a household name.  His lack of filter when it came to sharing his opinions kept him out of the mainstream media, you only saw him in paid ads and video parts.  His style and attitude helped shape a sport and his story is a rollercoaster of awesome.  Do not miss this one.

Scott Gaffney is a Sherpa in the world of elite athletes.  He carries a 40 pound backpack through some of the more remote places in the world all in the name of “getting the shot”.  Like many before him, the ski dream was only achieved through hardships that a lot of us don’t know.  Sleeping in cars, taking showers in local sprinkler systems and doing whatever it takes to make it.  And for Scott, “making it” became a sort of groundhog day of filming, editing and producing rad ski movies.  Hear the whole story on the podcast.

Giray Dadali spent his whole life in the shadow if his older brother, pro skier Ahmet Dadali.  While working to create a name for himself in the ski world, Giray realized he already had a name that everyone knew, Ahmet’s Brother.  Fast forward to today and Giray has had 3 signature Ahmet’s Brother Pro Model Skis and has finally stepped out from his brother’s shadow, kind of.  On top of all that, Giray is a schooled engineer who created and is currently selling the often sold out Daymaker Touring System.  His story is awesome and his experience, totally different than his brothers. 

Giray Dadali Show Notes:

Ahmet Dadali knows -better than most- that to make it as a pro skier, coming from the East Coast, you have to have that one-track mind, the drive to push though the bs and make it happen for yourself.  Ahmet and his 'I hate NY Crew', not only came form the East but helped shape the game in the world of street skiing.  Ahmet is opinionated and has no problem saying what he's thinking.

Eric Iberg grew up in Edina, MN, but there was no cake-eating in his life.  It was all about skiing and baseball...and baseball didn't work out.  This legendary filmmaker is also a true ski historian.  He’s a creative who’s also a people person that used film-making as his launch into the ski world.  Over the years, there were a lot of companies, movies and experiences…everything but a big payday for Eric and we talk about it all on the podcast.

Jon Julio has done so much throughout his career, maybe more than anyone else.  Over the years he has built companies (Valo Skates, Dyna Wheels, Synergy Bearings, Runners Project, England Clothing), created and produced events (IMYTA, Blading Cup),  and helped develop a video game.  On top of all that, he had to deal with the bumps and bruises  of his successful  20-year rollerblading career.   Now, he’s controlling his own destiny, investing everything he and his family has into his new venture, Them Skates and the sport he loves.

Aaron Feinberg won the X-Games on his 16th birthday and never looked back.  He was a skater with a park image who wasn’t all about the park and felt the need to prove it.  The evolution of his skating, combined with some calculated sponsor choices, created the path for Aaron to become one of the most respected street skaters in the game.   These days the world is a different place for Aaron and we look back on his career and talk about he’s up to today.
