Mark Abma isn’t your typical pro skier.  If you break him down, he’s part elite athlete, part farm boy, part hippy, part businessman and part dreamer with a work ethic that puts most people to shame.  On part one of his podcast, we talk about the journey from his dad’s welding shop, to the Hemlock Valley Freestyle Team, to the BC Freestyle Team, to the X -Games, to the big mountains, to the big screen and beyond.  Abma is a legend, and his story will surprise you.
