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.

Simon Dumont is a legendary figure in the world of freeskiing. Known for boosting higher than almost anyone else in the halfpipe, Simon’s career was full of podiums and video parts. While he is a legend in the sport, things didn’t come easy for Simon. He was always too small and told he would never make it and he never listened. He willed and worked himself to success and it’s something he believes anyone can do, if they put in the work

Pep Fujas is arguably one of the most influential skiers of our time, I’ve had so many guests bring him up on the show as the person they looked up to. Known for his style, Pep has always seen terrain differently, which has always shown in his skiing. On the podcast we talk about growing up in a yurt, contests, Tanner, Plake, Afterglow, K2, and his new venture WNDR Alpine. It’s a do not miss episode with a legend.
