Micah Evangelista isn’t a household name in the ski world, almost by choice. Micah is the underground, soul-skier type whose love of being in the mountains comes from growing up in the shadow of Mt Baker in Glacier, WA. Micah is such a talent; I’ve always wondered why he hasn’t blown up in the ski world. The podcast was the perfect platform to figure out why…we talk about getting into video early, Baker’s deep snowboard history, Lucas DeBari, why bringing a big-name pro isn’t the motivation for him, and a lot more.
