The name Isaac Freeland is not one most people know in skiing, which is a shame. Isaac was named ‘Rookie of the Year’ for the Freeride World Tour in 2020.  What’s more impressive than that is that he’s also the overall Freeride World Tour Champion—Holy Crap!!  And, between almost not making the tour on his last attempt, his allergies, being an only child, ski racing, and more, it makes for an awesome listen.

Before people were talking about women in skiing, Kim Reichhelm was the woman in skiing.  From racing on the US Ski Team, to filming with Greg Stump, to creating the K2 women’s program, Kim has been ahead of her time and she’s done things in a way that only she can pull off.  On the podcast, we talk about losing toes, making the US Ski Team, getting kicked off the ski team, and becoming the first woman of extreme skiing….It’s another DO NOT MISS Episode with a living legend.

Ross Rebagliati was the first-ever gold medalist in Olympic snowboarding.  He was also the first Olympian to have his medal taken away and given back.  Instead of being a blessing, the Olympic Medal ended up being a curse for Ross.  On the podcast, we talk about how the biggest triumph of his life turned into a series of wrong turns--for a guy who should be a household name.  It’s an interesting one with an athlete who was wronged, but he's also an athlete who never really helped himself.
