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 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.

Surrounded by towering coastal mountains and deep within the Great Bear Rainforest, it embodies the quintessential scene that has so many people falling in love with the Pacific Northwest of North America. Yet even with its
Over the past few years, Mount Snow has been pushing a development agenda to make their resort one of the east coast’s leading ski destinations, including a massive snowmaking upgrade and a new-and-improved lodge at their Carinthia base.
