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

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.

Aaron Blunk has been competing since he was 8 years old. When he was 10, he left the junior division, went to the open class, beat everyone and watched his much older competition leave the competition scene because he was so young and good. His career progressed to moving away from home to focus on the dreamof being a pro skier and he’s made that dream come true. His story, along with some great Inappropriate Questions from fellow Olympian, Lyman Currier, make this a fun listen.
