Tatum Monod Talks Internet Hackers, Advancing Women’s Skiing, and Injuries.  LPP #93

Tatum Monod LOW PRESSURE PODCAST #93

 

Tatum Monod came to the LPP Studios with her little dog Taj to sip some whiskey and have a conversation. Right off the bat we wanted to find out how Tatum got her start in skiing.  She grew up in a family of skiers.  Her Grandfather, originally from Chamonix, was a mountain man,  her dad was a member of the Canadian Ski Team and the family business is, you guessed it, is a ski shop.  She wasn't forced into it though.  They let her decide when it was time.  When that time came.... she decided to snowboard! 

Listen to the Full Episode

 In this episode Tatum discusses her thoughts on the state of  progression in Women's skiing.  She tells the story of having her entire online presence disrupted by a hacker based in Saudi Arabia which is somewhat resolved.  I ask about the major injury she suffered at the end of last season. Having experienced a similar fate last year I was curious as to how she was progressing.  She tells us that its definitely  been a long, tough process.  Not only is she getting help for the physical issues associated with this with from help doctors and physiotherapists but also utilizing advice from a councillor to keep her head right.  It's easy to get depressed and down when dealing with a traumatic injury.  I was very happy to hear her share this as mental health is a topic that needs to be given a bit more attention.

​How a Colorado River Guide is Shaping the Future of Women’s Whitewater

Texas Creek, Colorado—population 11—is far from a riveting summer home for most 20 year olds. But for serious whitewater paddlers, the region is an ultimate gateway. And this summer, Texas Creek and the idyllic rapids of the Arkansas River that run adjacent to it became the training field for six young women who vied to become the first-ever U23 (under age 23) female team from the United States to compete at the 2017 World Rafting Champs (WRC) in Japan. And, against all odds, the rag tag

Sam Giffin Nearly Died in An Avalanche Before Returning to Ski Filming

Sam Giffin Nearly Died in An Avalanche Before Returning to Ski Filming

Five minutes–that's how long Sam Giffin estimates he was buried under an avalanche field when he was caught up in a slide at the Elf Chutes in the Mount Baker backcountry in 2006. And while five minutes may not seem like a long time, when avalanche  suffocation rates skyrocket after a victim is buried for around 30 minutes, it can seem like a lifetime. Though Giffin was successfully extricated from that slide with nothing more than a torn ACL, he emerged from those five minutes in the

INDIE OPS: Eric Hegreness and Iris Skis

A few years ago, after working in ski shops for most of his life, Eric Hegreness had enough and decided he wanted to start fresh. To him, the ski industry had become stale, with the same “trends” appearing in every manufacturer’s lineup, but everything skied and looked the same. Wanting something different, Hegreness built a workshop in a garage to start pressing his own skis and make a mark on the ski industry with an eye towards craftsmanship and hand-built skis. Nearly a decade later,
