Olympic Judge Steele Spence has a storied history in the ski industry. He was part of the second wave of new school skiers and one who had a knack for greasing the burliest of rails. His urban game was top notch before most people knew that urban skiing was a thing. When pro skiing wasn’t an option anymore, Steele moved in-house and designed skis and products for 4FRNT. The life of a desk jockey was not for Steele and he quickly found himself in a new role, as a judge. Countless events later, Steele is an Olympic judge and with judging comes criticism. Listen to the podcast to hear Steel address everything around the scoring at the Olympic Games. - Mike Powell

Mike Powell has been around the ski game for longer than most. He spent 16 years at K2 Sports, managing some of the sport's biggest names, creating content and organizing events such as the Back 9 and Kamp K2. In his own words he's been spending his time "working his ass off for the love of sliding snow". His new podcast series, The Powell Movement, features some of the all time legends of skiing, in the form of both athletes and industry folk. We're stoked to partner up with Mike and present The Powell Movement's ski episodes (it also deals with snowboard and other action sports) to the world.
