Gnarly Charley Ager is one of the biggest mysteries in skiing. He came up from no-where to set the ski world on fire with his loose, sometimes scary style and switch landings that were way ahead of his time. As fast as Charley’s career evolved, it disappeared in the same speed. Charley walked away from skiing and into some personal issues and injury that we discuss on the podcast. The good news is, this story has a happy ending and Charley Ager is alive.
