Josh Dueck is an inspiration.  A working-class kid from Kimberley, BC, Josh took skiing as far as he could afford to before becoming a coach.  His coaching career was cut short due to a life-altering injury that put him in a wheelchair and eventually on Paralympic Podiums.  It’s a heavy story, and I ask all the questions that people want the answers to, but were afraid to ask.

Josh Dueck Show Notes:

3:30:  Chef De Mission, Kimberley, BC, and getting into skiing on his own via a paper airplane contest

11:00:  His crew on the freestyle team, his face piercings and look, partying, and the BC Team

14:00:  The end of moguls, coaching, working with the future of skiing, and making them better

21:00:  Stanley: Get 30% off site wide with the code drinkfast

Peter Glenn Ski and Sports:  Over 60 years of getting you out there

10 Barrel Brewery:  Buy their beers, they support action sports more than anyone

23:30:  Jumps, and how he injured himself, how it impacted Woody, and the immediate aftermath

29:00:  Finding out he will never walk again, the pain, the support of his parents and Lacy, other people’s reactions to the injury, and going to the BC Championships 3 weeks after surgery

39:30:  Alpine Vans:  Upgrade your adventure, Upgrade your life

Elan Skis:  Over 75 years of innovation that makes you better

41:00:  Everything you were afraid to ask about paralysis, his arms are his legs, retrofitting or not, and the expense of it all

50:00:  Getting back into the mountains,  getting into racing, crashing, and being humbled on the World Cup circuit

57:00:  Paralympics in Whistler, the Paralympic hangover, X-Games and Tom Morello    

67:00:  The Freedom Chair movie, the backflip, going on Ellen and airing over Abma

75:00:  Inappropriate Questions with Roy Tuscany
