TPM Episode 386: Lucas Foster, Pro Snowboarder, Olympian

6/9/2024
While Lucas Foster is not a one-trick pony, when he landed his Alley Oop Double McTwist in the pipe, his career and his life totally changed forever. What’s crazy is that Lucas grew up in Telluride, a place without a halfpipe, meaning Lucas came up learning his tricks at contests with barely any practice. Nowadays, Lucas has all the resources available to up the ante even more as he’s a member of the US Snowboard Team, and at just 24, who knows what he’ll add to his bag of tricks. On the podcast, we talk about his goal of being the GOAT, mentoring from Jason Cannon, contests, coaching, and more. Louie Vito asks “Inappropriate Questions” Lucas Foster Show Notes: 5:00: Taylor Gold’s Home Break, the consequences when you go big, learning new tricks, and cheating. 12:00: Telluride, getting on snow, family, weekend warrior, sucking at team sports, skateboarding, divorce and diving into skate and snow with the goal of being the GOAT 20:30 Stanley: Get up 60% off at Stanley1913.com Best Day Brewing: All of the flavor of your favorite IPA or Kolsch, without the alcohol, the calories, and sugar.

TPM Episode 384: Peter Olenick, Pro Skier

5/27/2024
Peter Olenick changed halfpipe skiing when he landed the first double in competition. His “Whiskey Flip” defined Peter’s life on and off snow; he went big, took chances, and partied his face off during his legendary career. He was on top of the contest world during one of the most run eras. On the podcast, we talk about not being cool growing up, Aspen, finding confidence at High North Ski Camp, success, partying, and a lot more. Colby James West asks the ‘Inappropriate Questions.’ Peter Olenick Show Notes: 4:00: Biggest birthday party, JOSS, Playboy Mansion, Aspen, different ski coaches, the joy of divorce, Steele rivalry, and the twin tip revolution 21:00: Liquid Force: Since 95, Liquid Force has outperformed the competition and turned a sport into a lifestyle.

TPM Episode 383: Jeff Thomas, Award Winning Filmmaker

5/20/2024
Jeff Thomas is an award-winning filmmaker, a once-sponsored skier, and a guy who was born to be a baseball player. While he can still throw the ball at 85 mph, the day Jeffy’s dad showed him the brochure to high North Ski Camp in the late ’90s, Jeff’s life went from boring baseball to the epicenter of the new school of skiing. At camp, he met his heroes, athletes, and his biggest inspiration, filmmaker Johnny Decesare —all of whom would become the forefathers of the sport and the lifestyle the twin tip movement bred. On the podcast, we chat about his Hall of Fame pedigree, Theory 3 media, Poor Boyz Productions, Teddy Knape, Switchback Entertainment, and more. Nerdy About Nature’s Ross Reid asks the Inappropriate Questions Jeff Thomas Show Notes: 5:00: The Wolverine, work ethic, baseball, High North, Jonny D, his ski career, film school, Theory-3, and recruiting athletes. 21:00: Liquid Force: Since 95, Liquid Force has outperformed the competition and turned a sport into a lifestyle.

TPM Episode 382: Zach Miller, Paralympian, World Champion Snowboarder

5/13/2024
Zach Miller is different than any World Champion I’ve had on the podcast. While he appears to be able-bodied, Zach has Cerebral Palsy, a neurological disorder that affects his mobility, posture, and balance. Zach found snowboarding through a hospital program, and that changed his life. Today, Zach is a Paralympian who travels the world to snowboard. On the podcast, we talk about CP and everything that goes along with it, including fatigue, challenges, and bullying. We also talk about competing against adaptive athletes while he looks able-bodied and the challenges that created. And, of course, we discuss money or complete lack thereof it, the Paralympics, and a whole lot more. It’s a different and important episode that everyone should hear. Zach Miller Show Notes: 5:00: Russell Wilson and God, Cerebral Palsy, he’s different than most adaptive athletes, growing up like he’s normal, and getting bullied. 21:30: Stanley: Get up 60% off at Stanley1913.com Best Day Brewing: All of the flavor of your favorite IPA or Kolsch, without the alcohol, the calories and sugar.

TPM Episode 381: Scotty Lago, Pro Snowboarder, Olympian, Hunter

5/6/2024
Scotty Lago had a path to pro snowboarding that’s different than almost anyone I’ve interviewed. Most high school dropouts don’t have Olympic Medals to go along with a grip of X Games and Dew Tour hardware, but that’s what Scotty Lago did. Along the way, he was part of the legendary Frends Crew, he filmed with Grenade, he filmed with Travis Rice for the biggest movies in snowboard history, and he did it all while riding for Flow Snowboards. When all was said and done, Scotty didn’t retire into the sunset; he’s now following his other passion of hunting, and just like in his snowboard career, he’s already a sponsored hunter, and who knows how big that world can get for Scotty. This is a fun podcast with an unfiltered legend and former Flow TM, Andrew Mutty asks the Inappropriate Questions. Scotty Lago Show Notes: 5:00: Hunting, Hew Hampshire, snowboarding, Green Mountain series, his unique schooling, Aerial Assault Tour, getting sponsored by Airwalk, then Billabong, and moving up in the contest world 19:30 Stanley: Get up 60% off at Stanley1913.com Best Day Brewing: All of the flavor of your favorite IPA or Kolsch, without the alcohol, the calories and sugar.

TPM Episode 380: Dane Tudor, Pro Skier

4/28/2024
Dane Tudor has had an incredible pro ski career that’s been going on for 15+ years, and while he’s getting older, Dane shows no sign of slowing down ski-wise, and no brands seem to care for some reason. When I say no signs of slowing down, in 2009, when Dane was 19, he won “Male Performance of the Year,” a huge award in skiing. Then, in 2023, 15 years later, Dane won that same coveted award again. While that’s so rare, so is the fact that while he’s always found success in both Moto and skiing, nothing has ever been easy for him on the sponsor end. Maybe it’s because he didn’t grow up with a dad or because he was always traveling between Canada and Alaska and was isolated with homeschooling…I try and find out the answers on the show, and Colston VB asks the Inappropriate Questions. Dane Tudor Show Notes: 5:00: Speedo’s, born into adventure in AK and Aus, the impact of not having a dad, and Red Mountain 11:00: Homeschooling, Colston VB and the 2 gen of the New School, self-confidence, attitude, and quitting ski racing 20:00 Stanley: Get up 60% off at Stanley1913.com Best Day Brewing: All of the flavor of your favorite IPA or Kolsch, without the alcohol, the calories and sugar. 23:00: Pro Moto dreams, back to extreme comps, then park, sponsors, filming with Theory 3, PBP, and Alaska, Elan Skis: Over 75 years of innovation that makes you better. 41:00: Peter Glenn Ski and Sports: Over 60 years of getting you out there.

TPM Episode 379: Jake Hopfinger, Pro Skier

4/21/2024
Jake Hopfinger created a name for himself in skiing at the Kings and Queens of Corbet’s in Jackson Hole. The double backflip he threw there for a 3 instantly made his name known worldwide. While the dollars and travel budgets are now coming in, Jake was once an aspiring D1 East Coast ski racer who could never finish a race. Then he quit racing, moved to Montana, and learned to ski powder. The rest is history in the making. Parkin Costain and Jonnie Merrill ask the Inappropriate Questions.

TPM Episode 378: Jessica Sobolowski-Quinn, Pro Skier, Owner, Points North Adventures

4/15/2024
Jessica Sobolowski-Quinn is a lifer in the ski industry. She’s skied more powder than almost anyone on the planet over the past 20 years, which is what you’d expect from the owner of one of Alaska’s premiere heli operations, Points North. But Jess didn’t grow up chasing powder in helicopters; she was a D1 ski racer who made her way to Palisades after college. From there, she met famous friends, started skiing rowdy lines, lined up sponsors, and traveled the world to film for a decade and eventually reeled it all in to manage the family business she runs with her husband, Kevin Quinn. Ingrid Backstrom asks the Inappropriate Questions. Jessica Sobolowski-Quinn Show Notes: 3:00: Growing up in CT, sports, long days, ski racing, staying on the groomers, and who was she in HS? 12:00: College Hall of Famer, moving to Palisades, Kreitler and Boyle, and snow 21:00 Stanley: Get up 60% off at Stanley1913.com Best Day Brewing: All of the flavor of your favorite IPA or Kolsch, without the alcohol, the calories and sugar. 24:15: McConkey, the culture of Tahoe, lessons learned, ski cross, big mountain comps, and K2 Elan Skis: Over 75 years of innovation that makes you better. 42:00: Peter Glenn Ski and Sports: Over 60 years of getting you out there.

TPM Episode 377: Colter Hinchliffe, Pro Skier

4/8/2024
Colter Hinchliffe is living proof that the Aspen rockstar ski bum dream not only exists but it can thrive if your heart is in the right place. Colter spent his life surrounding himself with the only thing that mattered to him - Skiing. And between growing up near Aspen, dropping out of college to shred, moving to Alta, and returning to Aspen, he made the right contacts to make the dream come true. He was tending bar in Aspen, making handfuls of cash, allowing him to travel anywhere in the world at a minute's notice...That lifestyle put him in AK and eventually in a helicopter with the TGR crew when he was 25 years old, and that, combined with an unexpected Powder Magazine cover, helped Colter graduate from ski bum to pro skier pretty late in the game. It's a real-life Aspen Extreme Ski Bum Story. Colter Hinchliffe Show Notes 3:00: Ski gangs of Aspen, Basalt, no ski programs, X in Aspen, Aspen rich person stuff 18:00 Stanley: Get up 60% off at Stanley1913.com Best Day Brewing: All of the flavor of your favorite IPA or Kolsch, without the alcohol, the calories and sugar.

TPM Episode 376: McConkey PMS Recap and Shane Stories

3/31/2024
The Pain McShlonkey Classic is arguably the most important event in all of skiing. The coveted Golden Saucer is up for grabs, and this year, 60 ski bladers had KT early ups on a Saturday pow day. The weekend's goal is to raise money in the name of our time's most important skiers and personalities. While Shane McConkey didn't look like an elite level athlete, he was way more than that: the funniest guy everyone knew, the most inclusive, the most awesome, and McShlonkey weekend is a way to celebrate his life and times with his friends at his home of Palisades. I put out a yearly podcast recapping the event and digging up old McConkey stories for your entertainment. This year, while you don't know all the names, the McConkey stories do not disappoint.

Throughout Elyse’s career, people have said no to her, but she’s never taken no as the final answer.

TPM Episode 372: Kaitlyn Farrington, Pro Snowboarder, Olympic Gold Medalist

3/3/2024
Kaitlyn Farrington grew up on a cattle ranch in Bellevue, Idaho. Life growing up was all about hard work, rodeoing, and, if there was fresh snow, skipping school to head to her home mountain of Sun Valley. Eventually, she switched from skiing to snowboarding, earned a scholarship for the Sun Valley Team, and things happened quickly. She went from being nobody to the World Cup to being named to the stacked US Team in a matter of years- she was always the underdog. But, in her biggest moment, she rode away with Olympic gold…and an injury took it all away. On the podcast, we talk about ranch life, making the US Team at 17, becoming a privateer, winning, a new reality, becoming an astronaut, and more. Kaitlyn Farrrington Show Notes: 3:00: Parents were ski bums, birthing horses, isolation, the old money of Sun Valley, and snowboarding. 12:00: Joining the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation Freestyle Snowboard Team late, casually competitive, getting on the US Team fast, Barrett Christy, Europe, and specializing in halfpipe. 21:00 Stanley: Get up 60% off at Stanley1913.com Best Day Brewing: All of the flavor of your favorite IPA or Kolsch, without the alcohol, the calories and sugar.

TPM Episode 371: Mark Mackay, From Ski Rep to Country Music Star

2/25/2024
Mark Mackay is a country music star in the making, but his background as a ski rep makes him the perfect new business episode. His road to Nashville included stints with Rossignol, Dynastar, and Atomic, all by the time he was 20. He was the head sales rep in California when Atomic started exploding, he had a dream job, he was young, and he left it all for the lucrative world of medical sales. Soon after, he had a life-changing epiphany on a paddleboard and, within an hour, quit his job, broke his lease, and went all in on being a country music star, and so far, it’s been working.

2/18/2024
Andy Hetzel is the Rick Kane of snowboarding. Hailing from Arizona, Andy’s first love was skateboarding, then punk rock. This eventually led to Andy finding snowboarding and moving his life to Breckenridge. He competed early and often and achieved pro status, but Hetzel won’t be remembered for contests, well maybe as the reigning World Mogul Champion. But, outside of that bump title, Andy and the skate-influenced crew he rode with, you know, the Palmer and Ranquet types, helped create the derelict culture of the sport when it wasn’t considered a sport, it was a lifestyle. It’s a fun history lesson, and Utah legend Benny Pelligrino asks the Inappropriate Questions.

TPM Episode 368: Nick McNutt, Pro Skier

2/4/2024
Nick McNutt’s ski bum story is one of the best. After ten years of dirtbagging it, Nick became a big-name pro skier and one of the faces of TGR movies. When Nick moved to Whistler at 17, he quickly became the skier other skiers were talking about because of his huge switch landings…something that wasn’t too common back in the day. While he filmed with smaller production companies, TGR’s 100K Collab contest was the thing that changed his life…and he didn’t even win. On the podcast, we talk about his journey to pro skierdom, getting buried in an avalanche with a faulty beacon, the aftermath, and much more. One of Nick’s oldest, loose-cannon friends asks the Inappropriate Questions.
