Josh Bibby is one of those standout Canadian skiers who made his way to the pro rankings via the competition circuit and spent some time on the bubble of the slopestyle scene and then left that all in the rear-view mirror to film for video parts.  The thing that really sets Josh apart from the rest, aside from his style, is his amazing, funny personality and antics.  On the podcast we talk about coming up in moguls, the Vernon crew, working with me, sponsors, money, firefighting, and a whole lot more.

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.

74:00:  Quitting snowboard racing in 1999, living in a van down by the river for 2 years, and things falling apart in his late 20’s

80:00:  Timing is lining up for him to be the Canadian weed industry, his many ventures, and what I think he should do.

Caite Zeliff grew up in a ski town but she wasn’t a skier. She was an only child to a single mom; she didn’t have the easy life of most of my guests.  She found skiing through a school program, found her way into ski racing, and then worked her ass off.  She earned scholarships to elite high schools, came close to the US Ski Team,  raced in college briefly, got hurt, and gave up on racing forever.  With that identity in the past, she’s carved out a path in Jackson Hole that has her filming with TGR and Warren Miller.  It's a great story.

Bob Klein is one of the rare first wavers of snowboarders that I’ve had on the podcast.  He is that first-generation when everything was being figured out—he was an early Burton team rider, he had a Sessions store, he worked with athletes like Palmer, Holmes, and Cass…He’s done so much.  We talk about a lot of it on the podcast and it’s a snowboard history lesson with a good dude who’s not afraid to admit his mistakes.  Brad Holmes asks the Inappropriate Questions.

Episode 200 is a 3-part extravaganza where we revisit some controversial guests and then talk to the best skier of our time.  For this one, I caught back up with John Spriggs to find out about the aftermath of his legal issues and where life is now, but John made me pull that audio.  Next, it’s on to Ben Weis, where we find out if he was able to stay sober…and the icing on the cake is an hour with the most decorated skier medal wise in X Games history and more importantly one of the most stylish skiers of all time, Henrik Harlaut.  Another Style master, Phil Casabon, asks the Inappropriate Questions.  I chatted with Henrik in mid-October and here is the DO NOT MISS Episode 200.

Dave Downing is a living legend in the snowboard world who is married to another living legend, Shannon Dunn Downing.  But he’s so much more than just a husband.  He’s a surfer shop rat who landed a job as a snowboard sales rep and somehow, was able to turn that into 15 years of pro snowboarding before becoming one of the most real ambassadors/whatever he does for Burton, that there is.  It’s a history lesson this week that brings it all the way to today….

Andy Mahre comes from legendary ski blood.  His dad and his twin brother are Olympic Medalists and were part of the fabric of 80’s Americana.  Andy’s skiing is a totally different direction compared to where his dad was taking skiing.  While Andy did race for a bit, he left that world to become one of the more innovative skiers of his time, with his effortless switch landings, huge drops, and calm style that have inspired a generation of skiers.  It’s another do not miss episode.

Matty Benedetto owes everything he has today to the ski industry.  This self-described Evil Genius is the master of his domain through his internet property, Unnecessary Inventions but his roots in action sports stared as a kid on the message boards of newschoolers.com.  From there he started a brand that would become an underground success in the ski world, had a life changing injury, came out, became successful and then organically became a budding TikTok star.  It’s a great podcast with an interesting dude….

Marty Carrigan is a name you may not know but he’s a guy who has so much history in the ski and snowboard world.  While he’s a sales rep extraordinaire these days, he cut his teeth with some of the most important brands in snow.  He started in the 80’s with Hart Skis when they were running the freestyle scene and then moved on to snowboarding and working with Morrow and Palmer.  He’s a talker with a ton of insight and stories.
