We talked to Erica Wright and her father Jerry about her skiing, and why she's such a threat to the comp scene. With an unprecedented arsenal of tricks, it's obvious why her parents will keep her in nearly road the clock training for the next 15 years of her life.
Callum Pettit’s early life was spent in the shadows of his little brother’s pro ski career. While the brothers were a package deal for sponsors, Sean Pettit was the draw. Eventually, Cal and Sean’s sponsorship paths went separate ways, which left Cal figuring out what was next. Which was new sponsors and a blue collar career compared to Sean’s white collar lifestyle. Throughout it all, there was never any drama between Cal and Sean and it’s cool to hear the story from both sides. This podcast is Cal’s version.
