LPP #100 - Ian McIntosh Returns with A Lot to Say!

LPP #100 

Ian McIntosh Returns

The first ever LPP guest, Ian McIntosh returns and joins us for a fantastic conversation to bookend our first 100 episodes! 

Ian McIntosh is a thinker and a planner.  I don't know if you could catch him unprepared.  This is equally true with his life away from skiing.    In the four and a half years since our first conversation, a lot has changed in his life, some good, some bad but you'll notice when hearing him speak he has an outlook and an optimism that only pushes him forward.

Ian McIntosh

Ian talks about his dedication to Protect Our Winters (P.O.W.) and the steps he's taken to be a leader in the fight against climate change.  We discuss that he sees social media as an important tool for this and tries to focus on the positive and impactful ways to utilize it rather than the anxiety inducing, superficial uses which are more prevalent.  We also follow up with Ian about why he's up his wing suit, his opinions on why he thinks China will save the ski industry and what he has planned for the future.

Enjoy!!

MOUNTAIN TOWN, USA — A snowboarder’s morale was crushed Friday morning after discovering that his local hill’s powder snow report was completely out of touch with actual snow conditions on the ground. Promising 14 inches of “blower” off-piste and “packed powder” everywhere else, the Marmot Mountain snow report eventually convinced 31-year-old rider Sam Rooney to get out of bed and rally for early turns, despite seeing sheets of rain falling outside his low-elevation residence.

POV: The First Sit-Skier to Drop Corbet’s Couloir

Travis Rice’s run at Kings and Queens of Corbet’s 2019 might have been some of the finest snowboarding we’ve ever seen, but the real hero was no doubt Trevor Kennison, who chucked it off the lip aboard his sit-ski. Kennison suffered a life-changing snowboarding injury in 2014 when he crashed on a jump in the backcountry of Vail Pass, Colorado, landing on his back. He has worked with the High Fives Foundation ever since, and competed in the ski race events with dreams of entering the 2022

Teton Brown’s Double Backflip Attempt into Corbet’s

Teton Brown’s Double Backflip Attempt into Corbet’s

If first you don’t succeed at a double backflip into Corbet’s, try, try again. Despite exploding from his first attempt, Tristan “Teton” Brown went for it again. The effort and commitment were there, unfortunately, the landing was not. Haunted from being unable to stomp either attempt at the trick last year, the double backie remains to be Brown's greatest arch-nemesis.
