Saying Fabiola da Silva is the best, and most underappreciated female athlete of our time is a bold statement…but it’s one that I fully believe.  I can’t think of another case in sport where a woman was so dominant in her field,  that the sport’s organizing body decided to cancel the woman’s event and have the women (Fabiola) compete against the men...And Fabiola did not disappoint, standing on the podium with her peers at some of the biggest events in the world.

Casey Brown has one hell of a story.  This bad ass mountain biker’s life has been filled with twists and turns that I will not spoil in this intro.  I will say that Casey had an upbringing different than anyone’s that I have met in my life.  Based on all that Casey shares, you would think that she would have a totally different, maybe even strange personality.  I found none of that, what I did find was an amazing athlete who knows all about highs and lows.  It’s another incredible story.

Once labeled a ski model, Caroline Gleich’s path to becoming a respected ski mountaineer has been quite the climb.  From the billboards of Utah to the monsters of the Himalaya, there is no fear in this 5’1” ball of energy.  The podcast gives a little of Caroline’s backstory and then a lot about Everest.  It was a heavy year on the mountain and Caroline shares what she experienced.  It’s a real look into a world that most of us only read about and it’s a great listen.

Rusty Malinoski, aka The Bone Crusher, is a World Champion Wakeboarder living the Canadian/American dream.  He’s got the house, the truck, the family, the CrossFit business and life is in a good place.  But it hasn’t always been that way.  On the podcast, we talk about being forced to enter the working world earlier than expected, moving to Florida with nothing more than talent, work ethic and a belief that he would make it, his long pro career, and a crazy road rage incident.

Brett Tippie is a living legend.  He’s one of the influential pioneers of freeride mountain biking, he was the first to absolutely send it on a bike, ride insane lines, and became the face of a sport.  On the podcast we talk about being a pro snowboarder on Burton’s pro team, some amazing Craig Kelly stories, bikes, partying too hard, and coming back from that to sponsors and emcee gigs.  This is a funny history lesson that you do not want to miss.

Cesar Mora was born to become a professional soccer player and he was on track to make that happen.  He moved from Australia to Spain and began training with Rayo Vallencano before visa issues forced him out of Spain. When he returned to Australia, he worked at a skateboard shop, found rollerblading, and within two years, was on top of the sport.  He dominated vert from 95 to 99 and then he broke his arm.  While Cesar continued to compete, he was never the same.  It’s an interesting story with one of the best.

Graham Agassiz is way more laid back than you would expect for a mountain biker who looks forward to putting his life on the line at Rampage each year.  He’s one of the best, who rides with a signature, loose style that really shines in a big mountain setting.  On the podcast, we talk about leaving Kona, the influence of moto and snowboarding, getting bullied, rampage, and injuries.  Aggy is one of those dudes that lives to have fun and that always makes for a great podcast.

By the time Jim Rippey made it to high school, his goals were clear, he was going to punt in the NFL. When football didn’t work for Jim, he found snowboarding. Within a couple years on a board, Jim was a sponsored rider with Burton, eventually had 7 pro models, and was the first to back flip a snowmobile. The interesting wrinkle is, one day in Alaska, Jim found god and everything changed for him. Fast forward 15 years and Jim is a man of god, a correctional officer living a completely different life.

Colleen Quigley’s life has been a series of dream jobs…. but nothing never really seemed easy for her.  Coming up on the East Coast, Colleen was a shop rat who made a B-List pro snowboarding career happen.  Her time as a pro shred was nothing flashy but it set her up to shine behind the scenes in the world of snow.  On the podcast, we talk about her pro days, her desk jockey days, and being a woman on the office side of snowboarding.  It’s the first business episode in a while and it’s a good one.

Cody Townsend has been at the top of the ski food chain for over a decade but he wasn't supposed to be a skier, he was born into a football family with surfing and skiing habit. Well, Cody bucked the family tradition and chose skiing over team sports. He became one of the best of his time, married another one of the best skiers of our time, has created brands, projects and so much more. Another do not miss episode.

Shane McConkey was the most influential skier of all time, but he was so much more than that.  Husband, father, funniest guy in the room, product visionary, goofball….there are so many words but none of them can truly describe who McConkey was.  On the podcast, I head to Squaw Valley for his signature snowlerblade event, take you through what that looks like, and talk to a variety of people to get some funny McConkey stories.  If you haven’t seen the movie “McConkey”, go watch it and then listen to the podcast.

Dale Rehberg is a living legend in the snowboard world.  In the early 90’s he, and a few other legendary names, brought a style to snowboarding that was visibly influenced by skateboarding.  While not accepted at first, it quickly became the norm and Dale’s fingerprints will forever be tied to the evolution of the sport.  But Dale’s snow story doesn’t stop with being an athlete and we talk about his time on the board, in the boardroom and everything in between.

Jen Hudak spent the better part of the past decade standing on podiums, hoping to make it to the Olympics and fighting for equality in skiing.  And while her life has transitioned to life coaching and desk work, Jen is still involved in the skiing as an ESPN analyst who als represents one of the few female voices found in the meetings and on the air at the X-Games.  We talk about the lack of women’s tv coverage, how her fight can continue and her successful, injury plagued career.

Will Wesson is a 32 year old X- Games Gold Medalist that doesn’t do contests.  He also happens to be the most popular pro skier that you’ve never heard of (if you're over the age of 35).  Hailing from the East Coast, Will is the quiet athlete in the pioneering webisode series, The Traveling Circus, a show documenting the style and travels of Will and his longtime bff, Andy Parry.  Will made it to the pro ranks the hard way and we talk about his route to internet fame and a long, pro ski career.  He doesn’t do interviews and I believe this is the most he’s talked in his life.

David Lesh is a hustler that’s living every ski bros dream.  He’ an athlete, a bachelor, a successful entrepreneur...who really knows how to live.  Along the way, he’s pissed a lot of people off, traveled the world, bought a lot of toys, has been to court too many times and has also hung out with Obama.  While people assume he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, that's not the case.  Love him or hate him, he's got an interesting story and it’s a good listen.

While Trevor Kennison may never become a household name, he caught the attention of the snow world last week during the Kings and Queens of Corbet’s event.  Travis Rice and Caite Zeliff may have won the money but “Riders Choice” winner, Trevor Kennison, started a new life.  Five years ago Trevor had a life-altering injury that put a hard stop to life as he knew it.  While Trevor doesn’t know what his future will hold, what he did on his sit-ski in Jackson Hole last week...has the opportunities rolling in.  It will be fun to see what he does with them.

Gnarly Charley Ager is one of the biggest mysteries in skiing.  He came up from no-where to set the ski world on fire with his loose, sometimes scary style and switch landings that were way ahead of his time.  As fast as Charley’s career evolved, it disappeared in the same speed.  Charley walked away from skiing and into some personal issues and injury that we discuss on the podcast.  The good news is, this story has a happy ending and Charley Ager is alive.

Chris Booth’s career started as a competitive skier from Australia who was ready to take North America by storm.  But doing that is next to impossible while you are focused on your studies and don’t spend a ton of time training.  Eventually, Chris graduated from contests to the backcountry, became a lawyer, and realized that the law life was not for him.  He went on to become one of the most important behind the scenes players in skiing, helping build the Black Crows brand into a global force.  And now, he’s taken off in a new direction that could change the travel aspect of skiing and more over at Awayco.  It’s a great episode that provides a lot of insight into the ski world.

Aaron Blunk has been competing since he was 8 years old.  When he was 10, he left the junior division, went to the open class, beat everyone and watched his much older competition leave the competition scene.  He never understood that it was because he was so young and good.  His career progressed to moving away from home to focus on the dream of being a pro skier and he’s made that dream come true.  His story, along with some great Inappropriate Questions from fellow Olympian, Lyman Currier, make this a fun listen.
