Chris Booth Podcast

Chris Booth is positioned to light the ski world on fire again with his new gig at Awayco. And when I say again.... once upon a time, this former X-Games level athlete put skiing in the rear view mirror--to practice law. After a few years, he wasn't happy, quit the law firm, and jumped into the world of brand building as the Commercial Director of Black Crows. He killed it and instead of enjoying the fruits of his labor, he walked away for something he sees as the future of ski, snowboard, surf and...travel.

Callum Pettit Podcast

Nov 26th 2018 - 0 comments

Callum Pettit’s early life was spent in the shadows of his little brother’s pro ski career. While the brothers were a package deal for sponsors, Sean Pettit was the draw. Eventually, Cal and Sean’s sponsorship paths went separate ways, which left Cal figuring out what was next. Which was new sponsors and a blue collar career compared to Sean’s white collar lifestyle. Throughout it all, there was never any drama between Cal and Sean and it’s cool to hear the story from both sides. This podcast is Cal’s version.
