Ross Powers had all the chips stacked against him…His life started in leg braces, and things weren't easy. What Ross did have, though, was a strong mom and snowboarding. He strapped in, learned to shred, started winning, and didn't stop until he was an Olympic Gold Medalist and one of the most decorated riders of our time. On this week's podcast, we talk about his journey from Vermont to just about every podium in the world.
