On March 17th, 2013 Alain Duguay and his friends found themselves in the path of an avalanche that was classified as a size 3.5. They were in Cherry Bowl in Terrace BC and in terms of the avalanche’s destruction -- it’s right in between being able to bury a car, destroy a small building or break trees and being able to destroy a railway car. It’s a happy ending as he and his friends were rescued by four Terrace locals and serves as a living testament to what it feels like to be buried...

11/18/2020
So this is a short little interview with Zoya Lynch the director of the film Motherload. This film is near and dear to my heart because it was directed by Zoya who was episode 45 of the Lawless Podcast.

The Future of Boarding with Amalia 'Billy' Pelchat

10/31/2020
Amalia ‘Billy’ Pelchat is on her way to becoming a legit pro snowboarder but I love how she inspires girls to get on their skateboards by hosting girls skateboard camps where everyone feels comfortable to put themselves out there. I think Whistler is proud to have born and bred this young lady who is gracious, focused, kind, goal driven, positive, passionate and all around inspirational human. Plus she is very good at explaining complex things like tik tok and making lava cakes.

7/22/2020
This podcast begins with Kevin telling me about his new diagnosis of life with thyroid cancer, a tumour in-between his heart and lungs and complications with his liver.

Plus he’s a real force as an athlete, photographer and has a real passion for oceanography and explaining it to me in layman terms. Thank-you...

I’ve always known Chad Chomlack to be a very agreeable man.

Mike Douglas // Godfather of Freesking // Activist

6/22/2020
What to say about Mike Douglas he has dedicated himself to doing more for skiing than anybody, literally shaping the sport of freeskiing. He produces a lot of film and short pieces that push the narrative of action sports and blend it with meaning and purpuse. He continually pushes forward in all areas of his life. Notably, his work with Protect our Winters Canada is what has captured my heart as of late. Enjoy one of Whistler's favourite people.

If I could chat with her for a few days I would. Jessa Gilbert is a very accomplished artist, snowboarder, adventurer and human. She lives in Nelson, BC where we chatted remotely from. She’s got a lot to say about life and I think it comes down to her passionate pursuit of living a good life.

Joel Loverin // Snowboarder + Favourite

2/13/2020
Joel Loverin is my absolute Favourite. Pretty much since the first time I met him. And then I went out in the mountains with him and realized he’s an absolute boss on his board, on his sled, on a rope swing, in a fishing boat and now on a Mountain Bike. He’s got an unparalleled passion and love for life. He tells great tales, a lot of them from the mountains around us and in Alaska. I hope you enjoy this podcast and get inspired to learn more about ropes and pursuing your passion.
