Part 2 of Jimbo Morgan’s life and times start with a trip to the Albertville Olympics in 1992. While this should have been the best day of Jimbo’s life, we talk about the good friend that died in his arms that day and how it impacted him. We then talk about the end of filming speed skiing with Plake and Stump, pioneering bungee jumping, inventing skiercross, and getting sponsored as a skier, telemark skier, and snowboarder. We also cover founding the Factory Team and how Powder Magazine set the sport of skiing back a decade by being close-minded. Brad Holmes asks the Inappropriate Questions
