The FIFTY - Cody Townsend Does a Q+A

Disclaimer: Cody Townsend does NOT go skiing in this episode. He does, however, have a lot to say about his ongoing project of skiing all 50 Classic Ski Descents of North America.

Our favorite part? A cameo with his furry friend Theo the Brave. Give this one a watch, you might learn something.

Technology is Allowing This Blind Racer to Ski Alone

Noemi Ristau is a German ski racer with Stargardt disease, a disease which has progressively impaired her vision. As Paralympic skier, she normally trains and races with a spotter who skis in front of her and directs her via a headset. That might be changing, though: As a commercial stunt to advertise their new 5G network, Vodafone decided to help Noemi ski without a spotter in close proximity.
