When I first discovered TWOOWT, the mega hyphy, underground ski brand from Russia, I thought it was incredible. I looked through videos and videos of the twoowt fam shredding the slopes and streets of Russia, and I was like wow, this is insane. Twoowt got me so stoked on skiing, after watching all of that I wanted to sport the same skis as Dima Makrushin, Sam Alander, Vadim Rudakov and other team riders. Here is my unprofessional review on the TWOOWT Makro Skis.

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.

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.
