Pete Moran has been a lot of things: ski instructor, snowshoe mountain marketing manager, 'People Magazine's "Most Eligible Bachelor," Red Bull marketing manager, agent, and entrepreneur. But really, Pete is a people person, and his natural ability to build relationships has helped him create an incredible life.

Jeremy Jones is a busy guy: between writing and illustrating his new book, “The Art of Shralpinism,” running Jones Snowboards, being the face and founder of Protect Our Winters, riding 28 days a month, and spending time with his family, it’s amazing he even has time to do things like record this podcast and the Alpenglow Speaker Series.

Chris Beresford’s young life was tough; he lost his mom young, then he’s raised by an alcoholic dad, then the family loses everything, and at the age of 13, Chris is responsible for things like his own food. While things could have turned dark, Chris didn’t end up dancing on stage 3; he was on the podium at all his moto races and then found family and community through snowboarding. At 20, he landed a gig at High Cascade Snowboard Camp, and from there came sponsorship and the creation of his brand Dang Shades. This one is a rags-to-riches story of perseverance.

Connery Lundin’s ski career should be as prolific as he’s manufactured it to be. This is a kid from Oakland who was so burnt out on ski racing that he decided at 18 that he would never ski. That all changed with the right roommates, who got Connery back into skiing on his terms…and once Connery fell back in love with the sport, he went all in on becoming a pro skier. But, to make things harder for himself, he didn’t do much to promote himself off snow…. but that didn’t matter, and it all worked out. Connery graduated to his day job of filming with Warren Miller and MSP, and we talk about it all….

Davey Smidt is a chameleon; he’s a nice Jewish boy who’s god given gift is being an amazing communicator. Davey is just as comfortable talking to Travis Rice as he is a CEO, a professor, an intern, and a kid at the skatepark. He’s one of those people that gets along with everyone, and while nice guys finish last, that’s not the case with Davey. On the podcast, we talk about his South African roots, his Bar-Mitzvah, his college years, and the dream jobs he’s had at Monster and GoPro. This is a fun business episode, and Jaimeson Keegan asks the Inappropriate Questions.

Bruce Edgerly or “Edge” as he’s fondly known is one of the only ski entrepreneurs I know to sell his company, get rich, and still be involved in the day-to-day of the business. I haven’t had anyone on the podcast with that type of story and Edge is also the only Ivy League guy I’ve had on the show. But Edge is just a dirtbag kayaker and skier who parlayed the contacts he made while writing for Powder Magazine and Larry Flint into a guerilla marketing machine that would drive the company he and his partner started, BCA, to the forefront of the industry. This is the ski version of the Steve Jobs story…but with a lot more personality. Steve Christie asks Inappropriate Questions, and they are awesome.

Bruce Edgerly Show Notes:

3:30:  Moving to Miami, Holderness Academy, Hockey at Brown University, and then moving to Utah

Gus Kenworthy is so much more than an Olympic and X Games Medalist. He’s more than an AFP or Dew Tour Overall Champion. Really, Gus is so much more than just a skier. He’s a humanitarian who risked everything to ride pipe (and slopestyle) like no-one before him. Gus is also the first professional athlete come out in the prime of his career. This is a story about bravery, feelings, and freedom. It’s a do not miss where we touch on his is amazing ski career, when he knew he had a secret, living with that over the years, the plan to come out and so much more. Michael Spencer and “Digi” Dave Amirault ask the Inappropriate Questions.

Brant Moles is a living legend, a World Extreme Champion who filmed with all the heavy hitters and is now back for part 2 of his podcast. The second half of his career is way more exciting than the race years; we talk about the extreme comp circuit, his role in forming the IFSA, MSP, TGR WM, IMAX, fat skis, injuries sponsorship, McConkey, and so much more.

Drew Petersen’s life and times have been defined by highs and lows from the time he was a little kid. On one hand, he lived in Colorado and developed a passion for skiing young. While that passion grows, so does depression and bipolar disorder, which is not diagnosed until much later in life. Combining that with a life of winning ski contests on the weekends and then returning to school as the smart, intense kid wasn’t the best combination. But Drew pushed through, made it as a pro skier, then had terrible accidents in the mountains, with a lot of head trauma and the suicidal thoughts became way stronger than they were at 9 years old. I’ve said enough, this is a heavy podcast, Drew is not afraid to share, and everyone should listen.

66:00:  Inappropriate Questions with Todd Ligare

Mike Styskal, aka Styk, has lived his life as a creative force in snowboard design, but Styk is so much more than that. He's one of those people that exudes effortless cool: he always has a different unique look, and his sense of style is always on point. It's a characteristic that helped this Nebraska farm boy go from the small-town USA to the progressive city of Seattle and thrive. On the podcast, we talk about Nebraska, Burning Bush Studios, Ride, China, trouble, Draplin, and so much more. If you like business episodes, don't miss this one.

Sep 19, 2022

Brant Moles is one of those legends that have zero ego. While he’s a quiet guy, he’s not afraid to share what happened with his career…and in the first part of his career, he was a Wisconsin-based ski racer who went to an east coast academy with the goal of making the US Ski Team…but with all stories like Brant’s, politics play a role. When that happens, it usually doesn’t work out. The good thing is Brant Moles’ career isn’t remembered for racing; it’s remembered for winning extreme contests, filming with the heavy hitters of his time, and helping lobby the industry to make fat skis. Brant Moles helped change the sport of skiing with product and how he used it in Alaska, and his story is one that should have been told long ago….but this is his first podcast.

Brant Moles Show Notes:

3:30:  Skiers of the Midwest, Racine, Wisconsin, The Playboy Club, and skiing in Wisco

GoPro:  The only action sports camera that matters

65:00:  Inappropriate Questions with Jeremy Nobis and Rob Bruce

Michelle Parker has made a name for herself in the big mountains, but her roots go all over the board when it comes to sports and skiing. An elite soccer player with a big future, Michelle was forced to choose between soccer and ski racing at a young age. She chose ski racing, became a Junior Olympic Champion, and then quit racing in favor of the park and skiing powder. While Michelle competed for a bit, injuries made her realize that contests were not her thing and her focus shifted entirely to filming. She’s arguably one of the most important skiers this century. We talk about real issues in this one, and Michelle has a great perspective. Roy Tuscany asks Inappropriate Questions.

Eric Schrijn is a street skater with legendary status and infinite wisdom. He was the winner of the first ever IMYTA street contest, he’s had timeless video sections, magazine covers, pro model products and  X Games hardware. While he was making this happen, he was also dealing with a family suicide, a diagnosis of bi-polar and managing all of that.

Inappropriate Questions has been a staple of The Powell Movement podcast over the past couple of seasons. But did you know the show pre-dates TPM?  Years ago, I had a podcast with Powder Magazine called “Sponsored,” and to build my own audience off that show, I created Inappropriate Questions as a stand-alone podcast and put it out on the TPM feed. When Powder killed the Sponsored pod, I pulled old IQ episodes off the internet, knowing I would create what you are listening to today. So please enjoy this special two-part episode, Inappropriate Questions from the Vault: The Sponsored Years

Inappropriate Questions has been a staple of The Powell Movement podcast over the past couple of seasons. But did you know the show pre-dates TPM?  Years ago, I had a podcast with Powder Magazine called “Sponsored.” To build my audience off that show, I created Inappropriate Questions as a stand-alone podcast and put it out on the TPM feed. When Powder killed the Sponsored pod, I pulled old IQ episodes off the internet, knowing I would create what you are listening to today. So please enjoy this special two-part episode, Inappropriate Questions from the Vault: The Sponsored Years

Robin Goomes went from an unknown name to one of the top women in freeride mountain biking, and she did this almost overnight by backflipping her way into the spotlight…But, before this Kiwi’s meteoric rise in the bike world, Robin grew up on a remote island and then entered the military. On Robin’s first podcast, we talk about the wild ride she has been on since 2021 and the road she took to being the first female to land a backflip in competition and jumpstarting her career.

Mike Adams’s legendary 45-year career in snow business has come to an end. I was able to catch up with the man responsible for some of the most iconic products of our time during his last week in the industry.

Nick Sargent is the SIA President who moved the business and sold its key revenue generator, the SIA Tradeshow...but he’s so much more than that.

Louie Vito has done it all: Champion snowboarder, reality TV star on ‘Dancing with the Stars’, playing himself in the sequel to ‘Point Break’, and there is so much more to him.

Louie Vito is a badass snowboarder. He’s an Olympian, a US Grand Prix Champion, a Dew Tour Champion, an X Games medalist, and he comes from a 300 vertical foot hill in Ohio. He also seems to know everyone form celebrities to pro athletes, he’s competed in Dancing With The Stars, he’s been in a Hollywood blockbuster movie and he’s pretty humble about it all.

Tyler Bereman is a badass when it comes to riding his dirkbike but that is only part of what makes Tyler so special.
