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.
