Nick Martini was supposed to be the biggest thing in skiing, and when he was healthy, he was going in that direction, but injuries got the best of Nick’s ski career. Good thing he was also an award-winning filmmaker who had plenty of downtime to hone his craft. These days, Nick’s Stept Productions has evolved into Stept Studios and what was a small crew based out of Colorado is now a thriving studio, employing 40+ people and continuing to live the dream. It’s an awesome conversation.
