Last week we recorded this episode of Last Call while I was on an evening splitboard skin up Beaver Creek to enjoy some fresh snow. Tune in to hear George and I chat about splitboarding, equipment, and uphill access at resorts.
AASI and Burton have been partnering on snowboard education and equipment for more than 20 years, and in the last year we’ve been collaborating on specific education highlighting the evolution of teaching kids. This winter we rolled out the “Kids Can Snowboard Too” project, a campaign to educate kids, parents, instructors, and resorts about the advancements in equipment, instruction, and terrain available to create successful lessons for 3-6 year olds.

Tune in for this episode with George Thomas, Stacey Gerrish, and me on making the most of teaching and training during lean snow seasons. Maybe we can even provide better training opportunities when the powder days are few and far between?

For the first time ever we sat the whole team down to record an episode with the entire snowboard team! Listen in as we tell some stories, share some insights, and give each other some crap!
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!
PSIA-AASI just dropped another edition of our First Chair, Last Call podcast. This one ties into PSIA-AASI’s new vision statement “Adventures in Education,” and is about following your passion, pathways to a career in the industry, and a little of my journey through the industry.

One of the awesome things about being on the AASI National Team is the projects we get to work on that impact the whole industry.
Earlier this spring, teammate Amy Gan and I met up with Burton’s Global Experience Manager Shaun Cattanach at Eldora Mountain Resort for one of those projects, a video to promote learn to snowboard programs for young kids to show at the National Ski Areas Association’s National Convention.
Not only was it a fun project to create and film, it carried an important message to ski area managers from across the country. I’m really happy with how the video turned out and love its message about improvements to children’s snowboard education through advancements in equipment, terrain, and teaching.
