Griffin Post was born into the ski industry. His dad was an executive with some big brands, ultimately running Smith, and wanting a young Griff to be anything but, a pro skier. That said, there was no special treatment for Griffin and he almost didn’t make it. A chance trip and win at the US Extremes took Griffin away from utilizing his MBA and working his way into the world of TGR. Hear Griffin’s unique path to pro skiing on the podcast.
