    Ask Me Anything: Mike Douglas

    He was one of the first you asked for when we proposed the idea for the Ask Me Anything series. Mike Douglas will be coming to answer your questions this Thursday, January 29th, from 4-7 MST.



    For most of you (I hope), MD needs no introduction. But for those who are maybe a little fuzzy or recently suffered a concussion, let me remind you:

    -Godfather of freeskiing
    -Founding member of the New Canadian Air Force
    -Got Salomon to build one of the first twin-tip skis ever (the 1080)
    -Inventor of the D-Spin
    -His segment in 13 had probably the most offensive lyrics of any song in ski movie history
    -Featured in too many Poorboyz & Matchstick movies to count
    -Got Salomon Freeski TV off the ground, along with lots of other awesome video stuff through Switchback Entertainment
    -Announced X Games ski events for years
    -Etc., etc., etc.

    so, you know, ask away, respect the legends, and we'll see you back here this Thursday at 4 PM MST.

    Loved my pocket rockets, thanks!
    question?? In all seriousness' do you think it helps having a low center of gravity when you did those spinny twisty maneuvers before landing in deep pow?
    thanks pal, bobby.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    Remember when you snaked me on False Face? Yeah, well, I haven't, and forgiveness is still not in the cards.

    When Tiger Woods came on your show that time when he was a little kid, did you have any clue that eventually he'd be banging Lindsey Vonn?

    Do you ever feel like you take too much credit for freeskiing?

    What is the best way to sell my Hoji/Beast/Mercury setup and purchase an all Salomon setup as I make the transition from just like Hoji to just like Cody?

    Thanks for all the FSTV episodes, still one of the best internet vid series going, which episodes are your favorite?
    Have any good Abma stories?

    In Romancing the Stone, you chose the girl over the jewel.

    How hot was Kathleen Turner really, and do you ever regret that decision?

    Favorite ski resort in the lower 48?

    Who is your favorite up-and-coming skier that maybe not many people have heard of?

    Most underrated country for skiing?

    How would you feel about a series reboot. Or even a movie franchise.

    Would you consider playing the Karl Malden role?

    Any chance we can get a picture of Zeta Jones' tits?

    Hey Mike,

    First time caller, long time listener. Anyway, got any 02/03 Salomon 1080's 181cm in orange socked away? I'd give my left nut to find some more of these somewhere - my favorite ski of all time.




    Anyway, thanks in advance for taking my question. Oh, and what's the easiest way you've instructed someone how to throw a D-spin?

    Thanks,

    Bmillskier in ATL.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Where so you think freestyle skiing (slopestyle/pipe) is going, especially with the involvement of the FIS?
    Wanna go skiing with me?
    I also would like to learn how to throw a D-spin from the man himself.

    Mike you made the transition from full time athlete towards more of the creative and business side of skiing.

    Was that a slow transition? Or did you have an "aha" moment to do that?

    How did you get the skills to shoot and edit movie footage?

    How did you get the public speaking skills for speaking and TV engagements?

    What advice would you give to young ski pros or wannabes to have a long - term career at skiing?

    Did you really get throat cancer from going down on too many Hollywood skanks with warts the size of walnuts ?
