Sammy Carlson Moves North - LPP #120

#119 Sammy Carlson

Listen HERE or with Spotify / Google Play / iTunes


Sammy Carlson is an achiever.  We won't say he's an over-achiever because nothing he does really seems out of reach for him.  Since his early days on the competition circuit until now, as he pushes his limits in the backcountry, Sammy has always approached skiing with a rare ease and confidence.  The transitions in his career are much the same and seemingly uncomplicated in each new step he takes.  He takes them when it's the right time.

We sat down with Sammy in the garage of the house he just built in Revelstoke.  A move North to Canada is one of his more recent transitions.  He tells about the move, the process of building his own house, and why he chose Revelstoke and the importance of being close to the Columbia river.

Sammy also shares stories about his move from competition skiing to backcountry filming how he approaches those projects and why he mainly creates them as solo ventures.  We discuss his workout regimen,  his badass trampoline, designing a signature glove and pack from Dakine and much, much more.

Enjoy!

Whistler Got 151 Inches of Snow in December, Check Out the Action

It’s been a historically white December in Whistler, so white in fact that the 151 inches of snow that fell last month have beaten out the previous record of 149 inches that fell in 1994. Whistler Blackcomb spokesman Marc Riddell had this to say about Snowcember: “It was a phenomenal holiday period and we’ve got a great base to start the season, particularly given the snow we’ve had in the first days of January.” He added, “It took some time to arrive this season, but it’s not letting
