Shane Anderson was a key personality and image when skiing needed it the most, in the mid to late 90’s.  While Shane had the Rockstar look, it was his tricks and the company he kept that thrust him to the forefront of the ski industry.  Part early big mountain guy and part new schooler, Shane rolled with the innovators of the sport until injuries got in the way.  On the podcast, we talk skiing, the Tahoe crew, Hollywood, and making documentary films.

Alex Hall has the world in the palm of his hands.  In only a few years, Alex has gone from an up-and-coming Swiss kid to arguably the best American Slopestyle skier... What's different about Alex is his basketball player height and the hunger he brings to the table.  The best part about Alex is that he is a throwback…  He’s the X Games Gold winner in Real Ski, in Slopestyle, and in Big Air but he always makes sure that he’s filming for something.  And he's just getting started.

Damian Sanders is arguably the first and last real rockstar in the world of snowboarding.  He’s one of those riders who had an image that the whole sport could be marketed on.  From his look to the way he rode, to how he partied, to his entourage, if you saw Damian out, you wouldn’t think he was a snowboarder.  He was larger than life and defined 'go big or go home' on and off snow.  On the podcast, we talk about coming up punk/new wave, Tahoe, Palmer, Farmer, Plake, cars, money, and more.  It’s a fun chat with a true living legend.
