While Trevor Kennison may never become a household name, he caught the attention of the snow world last week during the Kings and Queens of Corbet’s event.  Travis Rice and Caite Zeliff may have won the money but “Riders Choice” winner, Trevor Kennison, started a new life.  Five years ago Trevor had a life-altering injury that put a hard stop to life as he knew it.  While Trevor doesn’t know what his future will hold, what he did on his sit-ski in Jackson Hole last week...has the opportunities rolling in.  It will be fun to see what he does with them.

Chris Booth’s career started as a competitive skier from Australia who was ready to take North America by storm.  But doing that is next to impossible while you are focused on your studies and don’t spend a ton of time training.  Eventually, Chris graduated from contests to the backcountry, became a lawyer, and realized that the law life was not for him.  He went on to become one of the most important behind the scenes players in skiing, helping build the Black Crows brand into a global force.  And now, he’s taken off in a new direction that could change the travel aspect of skiing and more over at Awayco.  It’s a great episode that provides a lot of insight into the ski world.
