I was able to get in another in-person interview with Trevor Ajamil & Shawn Cahill, the founders of NE Stomps. NE Stomps is a small, VT-based manufacturer of stomp pads. In this episode, we talk about the reasons for having a stomp pad, talk about why they got into making them, riding in and around the Upper Valley ...

So, Ski Rex Media has done a few things involving skiing youth, as of late. I was at the Tristate Championship for the Big Air & Slopestyle days. I also visited the Waterville Valley Acad. kids at Waterville Valley for a moguls training session. Then, I got to talk to Seth Ehrlich, the Exec. Director of SOS Outreach, an organization dedicated to getting kids on snow. This week, the podcast continues to work with kids by having ...

Reaching the Hall of Fame takes a lifetime of work and achievement...unless one is just going to cover the induction gala as a journalist. Then it just takes a few emails and phone calls. I revived that email just a couple of weeks ago and made my way to Bretton Woods this past Saturday to attend the 2022 US Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame Induction Gala. For this episode, I do a bit of a recap, my thoughts and feelings of the gal...

How about an extra episode this week? The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame induction events are taking place this weekend at Bretton Woods, NH, which I will attend. It's because of this that I had the chance to speak to one of the inductees. For this episode, I get to talk to Holly Flanders, a pro-racer from back in the day. She and I talk about parts of her career, racing and after, what it is like to be a hall of famer a...

This week on the podcast, I present to you my first spin-off episode, which happened quite coincidently. That story does come up at the beginning of the interview, but the interview itself is with Charles McNall, creator of The Chuck Bucket. What is The Chuck Bucket? Well, it's a device used to carry one's skis & boards on their vehicle. Charles and I talk all about his product, the advantages of using it over a set of ...

It’s not often that many of us get to say that we skied or snowboarded at a private ski club. The main reasons are that there isn’t one close by or we just aren’t members of any ski club that is close by. Well, I, as well as my assistant/producer, Travis, got to ski at one on February 11th, 2022. How and why? That’s what this episode is all about. This week, I have a two-part episode for you. The first part is a chat with Bill Benn...

This week on the Ski Rex Media Podcast, I offer to you another interview with the person that runs a ski mountain. This week, I got the chance to talk to Lindsay DesLauriers, President of Bolton Valley Resort here in Vermont. It’s a wonderful place, one of my favorites. In this interview we talk a little about the mountain’s history, Lindsay’s positions there, including the one she held in high school, we talk about the mountains p...

In order to ski or snowboard, one must first learn how to do it. That goes for anything we want to do though, doesn't it? In any case, I suggest learning for a professional ski instructor at your local mountain, which is what we are talking about his week on the Ski Rex Media Podcast. This week, I spoke with Katie McNall, the Director of the Ski School over at Whaleback Mountain, the closest ski mountain to Ski Rex Media HQ. We...

Hello and thank you for joining me for another brand new episode of the Ski Rex Media Podcast. As things get back to normal here at the HQ, I can start bringing you interviews again, which starts with this episode. This week, I’m talking to Margaret, founder of Trapper of Colorado, a mountain-style brand located in Colorado. We talk all about looking good both on and off the mountain. I mean, who doesn’t wanna be stylish for après,...

Welcome Back To The Podcast! Yes, after a few weeks of being on my back with the COVID, I'm back and ready to podcast. This week, I'm making it easy on myself and just doing a solo episode. You know, just to get back into the swing of things. I talk about being down with sick with the COVID-19, as well as my first day back on snow afterward. The bonus here is that I got to ski with some fans/friends at a mountain I really e...

Competition is a wonderful thing and that’s what we are talking about this week on the Ski Rex Media Podcast. Joining me for this episode is Brandon Baker, the man who is running the Winter Wild series of uphill races here in Vermont & New Hampshire. We talk all about the history of the events, the logistics, the calendar, how tough they can be, and what it’s like to participate in them. It sounds like a lot of fun, especially ...

Good day & Merry Christmas! That’s right, it’s that time of year again. Time for all of us to put up our Christmas Specials! Again this year, mine isn’t the most special, but just like the gifts under the tree, it’s the thought that counts. Also again this year, I won’t take up a lot of your time. I know these last few days leading into the actual holiday can be wicked busy for folks. So, I just want to take a little time to ta...

I think it's always a draw when a program like this has a professional athlete as a guest. In this case, I do have an athlete, but I think it's even more unique because of his story. This week, the Ski Rex Media Podcast welcomes Benjamin Alexander to the program. Ben is working rather hard to move through the ranks and qualify for the upcoming Olympics. How is that unique? Benji is working to be the first alpine skier to re...

Hello, one and all! Thank you for checking out the Ski Rex Media Podcast. This week, I'm keeping it local. It's true, last week I spoke with Geoff Hatheway. the man that runs Magic Mountain in southern Vermont. So, why not talk to a boss-guy again? This week, the GM of Dartmouth Skiway, here in the Upper Valley of VT/NH, joins to talk all about this mountain that many folks either haven't heard of or think that it's...

This week I am bringing you a magic act. Okay, that's not 100% accurate. Though there will be some magic in this episode, it's not the kind of thing you would see as part of a magician's stage show. This week, I bring to you a conversation with the co-owner and operator of Magic Mountain, VT, Geoff Hatheway. We get to talk about the history of Magic Mountian, we talk about southern Vermont, the many jobs that come with ...

I find the world of adaptive sports fascinating. From the folks that participate, to those that teach and develop adaptive sports, to the technologies that make many adaptive sports possible. It's all some really interesting stuff. With that said, I decided I wanted to talk about adaptive sports and I found just the right person. This week, I present an interview with Kim Jackson, Director of Communications at Vermont Adaptive ...

I have talked about a skiing book in the past. I had Dan Egan on the podcast talking about his book, “30 Years in a White Haze”. That was a lot of fun and this week we talk to an artist and skier that had a hand in that book. This week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Kimberley Kay, who not only did a handful of the illustrations in Egan’s book, but she has written and illustrated a book of her own, “Ski A to Z”. It’s a wonderf...
