Over the summer I wrote a review of the Fluidstance Level balance board and how I’ve been using it at my standing desk. They recently followed up with an interview for their a blog feature called “What Moves You: Chris Rogers Lives Life in Motion.” Check it out on their site, linked below, to hear my answers about my typical day, how I find balance between work and motion, and “My Fluidstance Story.”
Chris Rogers is a Snowboard National Team Member and Manager of Training at Vail Ski & Snowboard School. Read about his life in motion and how FluidStance helps

Little behind on posting the podcasts we did live from Fall Conference. This one is with my snowboard teammate Nick Alfieri, alpine teammate Jon Ballou, and Beaver Creek counterpart Stacey Gerrish and is all about learning from failure. Check it out!
In this episode of First Chair, Last Call George and I dive into return instructor training and how it sets the tone for a great season. Listen in for how you, as a returning instructor can make the most from it and get psyched to introduce more people to the sport this winter!
Super excited about this news from PSIA-AASI. For those that don’t know him, Nick is a phenomenal skier, inspiring leader, and all around great guy. Nick has been a huge part of Logan Academy, one of the big events we host at Vail, and for the last few years he’s taken the hard charging heavy hitter ski group (which usually ends up hucking off Lovers’ Leap). So rad to have a skier of this caliber taking the reins of the organization, and I think we should all be stoked for the direction he’ll lead.
Nicholas Herrin, a snowsports-industry leader with senior management experience in resort management and snowsports education, will join the Professional Ski Instructors of America and the American Association of Snowboard Instructors (PSIA-AASI) as its new chief executive officer on July 18, 2016. Currently based in Gunnison, Colorado, Herrin most recently served as the assistant general manager for Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Colorado. He also served three terms (2004-16) as a member of the PSIA Alpine Team.

I was back East for a couple of weeks this fall, and took the opportunity to visit the Burton Headquarters in Burlington. In addition to visiting with old friends and touring the Craig’s prototyping facility, I saw a few things that I haven’t been able to talk about. Read more “The Burton Stone Hut”
