Paul Crandell is more connected to radical people than anyone I’ve had on the podcast.  LP, as he’s known, has done everything when it comes to events.  He started as the banner guy, complete with all the zip ties and in just a couple years, he became the puppet master, complete with all the Red Bull budgets.  After a decade of creating and executing the most important events in the world, it was onto the GoPro rocket ship, where he experienced the pain of going public, cashed out and is now all about kindness.

Zach Crist may have the most complete ski career of any athlete  I’ve had on the podcast--other than his older brother Reggie. Coming up in Sun Valley, Zach achieved his goal of making the US Team, but it wasn’t all the glory that it sounded like and after a second knee injury and retirement, Zach started collecting X-Games medals.  From there he became a guide, went to AK to film, invested in some ski related real estate and we talk about the high’s the lows, and the tragedies and triumphs on the podcast.

Christina Lustenberger, aka Lusti, is an all-around badass in the mountains.  Before this certified ACMG guide was killing it in the TGR movies, she was a racer out of Canada and paid for it with 5 full knee re-constructions over 10 years.  But even with the injuries, Christina competed in the Olympics and transitioned from race to guide school.  On the show we talk racing, guiding, being a woman in a male dominated world, malfunctioning gear and what it took for Lusti to earn the pro skier dream.
