How did you do with your summer reading? I'm still behind a few books that I was hoping to read in summer 2019, but there was one book I made sure that I finished in summer 2021.

Podcast #224Here We Go

Oct 20 2020

It's an understatement to that there's so much uncertainty in the world right now. Whether it's covid, the US Presidential election or how La Nina will affect ski & snowboard season, so much is up in the air right now.

It's impossible to find a skier or snowboarder who hasn't been inspired by the work of Warren Miller.

We had the pleasure of interviewing three folks who instrumental in the making of the film, Director Patrick Creadon, Producer Jeff Conroy and ski pioneer and Warren Miller film star Dan Egan.

Podcast #212Medical Mariojuana

Jun 29 2020

In these crazy times, we all could use a little something to take the edge off. Imagine being able to go back in time and tell your high school self that marijuana would be recreationally legal in almost 20% of states and roughly 50% for medical, it would've blown your pimply, hormone-overloaded mind! Mario lives in one of those fine states and just got his medical card and tells the story.

Podcast #210Drinking Socially

Jun 7 2020

The virus, the quarantine, the riots, whatever happens tonight, it's all kinda crazy right now. Everyday you wake up and have no idea what new unthinkable thing is going to go down today. Two of the only things that has remained "normal" during the past few months has been beer consumption and podcasting. With that common ground, we chat with Jon and Harrison from Drinking Socially - The Official Untappd Podcast.

Podcast #209Til I Get Stoked

May 20 2020

What would you tell a younger version of yourself if you could? We don't currently have that option, but we do have a friend, Mike, from Get Stoked Productions and Till I Die. He's only a college sophomore, but he's skiing, biking and hustling to create the life a lot of us sellouts can only dream about. We chat with him, give him terrible advice and hear about who he's working with and what he's working on.

Podcast #205Skimagine

Apr 19 2020

Since @galgadot sang #Imagine and pretty much ended #covid19, your pals Brian and Mario have decided to do our own rendition called "Skimagine." Well, not exactly.

Apr 11 2020

Episode 204 and we're looking at a great way to connect with other ski minded people through the use of the Skibuds app. Today we chat with Stephen as we ask questions on how he got started, coding the app, and the many uses for ski people, ride sharing, and hanging out in your favorite ski and non-ski towns. With all the new social distancing, this app may allow you to connect with new friends without circulating in large crowds. Shall we call it social-selectivity?

Podcast #203Adults Behaving Poorly

Apr 4 2020

As Covid-19 rages on, we're starting to see the trickle down effects of the economic shutdown in the ski & snowboard industry. It's not just the resorts, but all the other people who depend on the resorts that are now being affected. We chat with our new friend Brian Finch, a physical therapist and strength trainer living in Killington, VT, on what it's like in a ski town during the shutdown and how we can do our part to help.

Podcast #201Covid-19 Skis in Jeans

Mar 19 2020

Not sure if you've heard, but this covid-19 corona virus is becoming a big deal. We tried to deny it and fight it, but it's here. It's so bad, it's prematurely ended the 2019-20 ski and snowboard season, shuttered all sporting events and disrupted the lives of almost everyone in the world. It shan't disrupt the podcast and we've got our friend Hunter Roberts (@hunterthesnowdad) back on the show. We're going to talk about how this affected us and what we can do to stay sane in these trying times

Podcast #198The Wall

Feb 22 2020

Ellicottville has been called "the Aspen of the East." Frankly, I find that embarrassing for Ellicottville, which is way more chill, real and fun than the elitist, douche-rocket utopia that is Aspen. Want to hear about it? Join us for Part 2 of the recap as Brian and our buddy Rich, from All About Après, recap their trip to Holiday Valley and Ellicottville, New York.

Podcast #196Bracelayer

Knee injuries. Sadly, they're a part of skiing and snowboarding. Luckily, there are many ways to repair and prevent these injuries so we can keep doing the sports we love at the highest level we can. One of these products is Bracelayer, a knee-stabilizing compression pant. We got to chat with the company's founder, Dan, who created this product and how it can help anyone. We're using them and let us tell you, you will feel like a superhero when you put these pants on!

Podcast #194Sugarbush

Jan 17 2020

A few weeks ago, Andrea and I were lucky enough to spend a few days up at Sugarbush in Vermont. It was still early season, so not everything was open, but we got lucky with some unexpected snow and had great hosts. We were also in the middle of craft beer nirvana which included multiple trips to Lawson's Finest Liquids. Join us as we recap our trip on the car ride home from Sugarbush.

Podcast #193Nelly

Jan 11 2020

Being skiing and snowboarders, we sometimes take for granted how lucky we are to be able to participate in this amazing sport. Some folks like, winter4kids.org is taking it a step further and helping to introduce kids the sport that we love who made not have had the opportunity before. One of these good folks is our friend Nelly. She works for winter4kids.org and has been busy preparing for their big event on 2/14, the NorAm Cup.

Podcast #190Big Snow

Dec 6 2019

The idea of indoor skiing in New Jersey has been alive since 2004 when ground broke on what was then called Xanadu and has finally manifested into what is now American Dream. More specifically Big Snow, the first indoor ski resort in North America is no longer a dream, as of December 5, 2019, it is open for business. We were fortunate enough to be there for opening day with our friend (and original podcast member) Steve, to tell you all about it.

Podcast #189First Chair Travel

Nov 27 2019

Skiing and snowboarding are awesome. Traveling to go ski and snowboard is awesome. Planning travel sucks. How do you get there, where should you stay, is there a good shop to demo skis and boards? It's enough to make one not want to travel at all (well, almost). Wouldn't it be great if there was a company that set up turn-key trips to amazing ski/snowboard destinations? We chat w/ Mike from First Chair Travel Co. who does exactly that. They even have a sweet trip to Banff, Alberta planned for March 7-14th 2020 that you can still jump on.

Podcast #187Snowphie’s Choice

Nov 14 2019

You may think you have a cool job, but is one of your job requirements to make sure you ski at all the resorts in your state? If not, you might want to update your resume. This week, we interviewed Anelise Bergin, Director of Communications at Ski Utah. We had a great conversation, but she had trouble picking a favorite place to ski in Utah. With all that great snow and terrain, it truly is Snowphie's Choice.

Podcast #186Leaving Brooklyn

Nov 8 2019

We've all had that dream. You know, the one where you actually play the hero in the movie that is your life and make that bold choice to leave your job and your commute and move to the mountains. While most of us just wake up and plug back into the Matrix, some people actually follow their dream. On this week's podcast we talk to one of those people, our new friend, Hunter Roberts who's packing up his family, leaving Brooklyn and moving out to Squaw Valley.

Podcast #184Alba Adventures

Oct 26 2019

"A family that skis together, stays together." That's the motto of our guests these weeks, our friends Ray, Alicia, Sandro and Nevada from Alba Adventures. They ski all winter, travel all summer and document their adventures for all of us to enjoy. It's the family you wish you were part of when you were growing up. They've been traveling the film festival circuit, but found some time to chat with us. We think you'll enjoy it.

Podcast #182Make It Snow

Oct 11 2019

Last time we checked, no one has control over the weather. As snowsports enthusiasts, we would certainly drop the temperatures and crank up the precipitation so that we could ski and snowboard our favorite mountains all year long. The next best thing we have is man-made, snow-making technology. It's something that's easy to take for granted, but a lot of time and energy goes into getting that extra slippery white goodness that we need. We look at some of the constraints and capabilities that go into making sure we can maximize the number of turns we make, all winter.

Podcast #181The Golden Matt

Oct 4 2019

Panic is starting to set in as Boston sports teams are stuck in a historic championship drought of almost 8 months.

He is also the curator of the It's All Downhill" newsletter that you should subscribe to more ski news, information and stories, every week during the ski season.

Podcast #180Oktoberfest

Sep 28 2019

Rumor has it, Oktoberfest was started 186 years ago by King Ludwig as a celebration of the end of summer and a welcoming of the beginning of ski season. As excited as Mad King Ludwig, it pales in comparison to Mario's excitement this year. Not only does he have some epic ski trips already planned, he's about to head out to Germany and attend the final weekend of Oktoberfest! It's not his first time, so he's got some tips and advice for those looking to celebrate.

Podcast #179Meet and Greet

Sep 21 2019

The snow continues to fall all around the Northern Hemisphere and everyone is itching to get their boots on and get on the mountain. Patience, our friends, there's still a little time before we all go wooshing down the mountain. There is planning, conversations and schmoozing to be completed. We talk about the ski.com event last week in NYC and the other events we have coming up in the weeks.

Podcast #178Build and Cleanse

Sep 10 2019

It's our first podcast after the big Labor Day weekend! If you followed us on Instagram, you would've seen that Brian was busy building a dope ass Adirondack chair made out of skis (as well as a shot ski). What you may not have known, was that Brian also went on a 3-day cleanse after the Labor Day weekend because of all the margaritas, pizza and ice cream pizza (yes, it's a thing) that he ate. Want to know more? Listen to this week's epsiode, which is all about Brian!

Podcast #175Apres – Part 1

Aug 26 2019

It's been a long hot summer and often we spend time, by ourselves pondering life, the previous ski season and the upcoming ski season. As much fun as it is to ponder by oneself, sometimes, it's even more fun to have a conversation with a buddy. This week, that's exactly what we do, as we sat down with our pal Rich from All About Apres. We talk about why we do what we do and where we all want to go.

Podcast #174Start ’em Young

Sure it's the middle of August and we're all trying to keep from melting, but did you know the next solstice is the winter solstice? Believe the hype, it is true.

Don't worry, we've got some articles and thoughts to help you get ready!

Podcast #173We Bought a Ski Resort

Aug 5 2019

Haven't we all dreamed of owning our ski resort? We certainly have and now, low-and-behold, Soldier Mountain in beautiful Fairfield, ID, is on the market. Did you know that Bruce Willis was once the owner? Yipee-ka-yeh-mothafucka. Does it get sweet dumps, yes, then why are the current owners selling? Could be gambling debts, could be they'd rather just move Arizona and phone it in...who knows? We're going to discuss what it would take to actually buy these glorious beast and what it would take to turn her into a winner.

Podcast #168Almost Ski Season Time – Part 2

Jun 26 2019

Ahhhhhhh, AlmostSkiSeason, time to kick back and unwind. Our opinions of summer have changed over time, from dread, to embracing what is possible and how to better prepare for ski season.

Podcast #167Almost Ski Season Time

Jun 24 2019

Ahhhhhhh, AlmostSkiSeason, time to kick back and unwind. Our opinions of summer have changed over time, from dread, to embracing what is possible and how to better prepare for ski season. We thought we were going to have nothing to talk about, but this ended up turning into an epic think tank podcast episode. So much so, we had to break it into two part. Here's the first part, we hope you enjoy it!

Podcast #164Beautiful Brains

Jun 1 2019

If you listened to the last two episodes of the podcast, you may be convinced that both Brian and Mario suffer from some sort of brain damage. We cannot completly disagree with your assessment. CTE was big on a lot of radars after a great movie with Will Smith, but the issue doesn't go away after the box office sales go away. Every sport all the time, it's still an issue. We share some information we've found to help you avoid damaging your beautiful brains.

Podcast #163What The Frank? – Part 2

May 24 2019

If you missed part 1, you'll want to check out episode 162. You listened and you're still back for more? God bless ya, you're one of us! I'm not sure if I'd say this episode is 'art' in the purest sense of the word, but there is something beautiful about it. In the same way two vintage Ferraris crashed into each other is also beautiful. Take a listen and you'll see what we mean.

Podcast #158CannabiSki

Apr 18 2019

We talk a lot about cannabis on the show (I mean, we have a whole Gonjola section, every week). It's almost April 20th, pretty much Christmas for cannabis enthusiasts, but do you know why 420 has become synonymous with cannabis? How about why cannabis is illegal in the first place? Why does a skiing podcast care so much? All these questions and more will be answered when you check out this week's episode.

Podcast #157Moguls Fo’ Sho’guls

Apr 12 2019

We don't want to say it, but we're all aware that the end of the ski and snowboard season is approaching. The bums aren't ready to hang their skis up yet, so last weekend we went up to Killington to check out the Bear Mountain Mogul Challenge. Part serious amateur mogul competition, part serious party atmosphere. We had a great time and want to tell you all about it.
