Lhotse Merriam Hawk's huge role in organizing the sport of big mountain skiing and beyond cannot be ignored or understated. As the Vice President of the International Freeskiers Association, an organization she helped co-found with Shane McConkey, she was a 1-woman band creating the infrastructure for the future of ski contests outside of what fell under FIS control. And go figure, this year, the crown jewel of big mountain freeride competitions, FIS, purchased the Freeride World Tour. Lhotse helps break down what this means and shares some stories about Shane McConkey, Seth Morrison, Tony Hawk, and more.
