This summer, FREESKIER will be bringing you content to keep you cool as the temperature rises. We get it, your mind hungers for a day of frozen faces, beaming smiles, soaked socks and bottomless turns. Whether you’re practicing a pretz 2 at Mt Hood or just daydreaming, we’ll be hooking you up with movies, edits, news and more to keep you stoked and satisfy that ski itch until you can get back to doing the real thing.
The one and only Alex Hackel has fired up a YouTube podcast, and we couldn’t be more pumped for it. For the inaugural Pilot episode, Alex is joined by his good friend and fellow member of The Bunch, Magnus Granér. The two dive into X Games Real Ski, the pros and cons of the heavily debated competition, Magnus’s 2017 Gold Medal edit, Alex’s 2020 and 2021 Real Ski grind and more. While X Games Real Ski is currently out of commission, this talk brings up very good points about why it’s necessary to create more ways for young skiers to jumpstart their careers and to get the attention of brands and people that can give them the opportunity to keep skiing. Dive into the 20-minute chat to hear these two greats give their takes.
Hopefully, this podcast, and others like it, continue well into the future. The Mayrand Podcast is another athlete-driven podcast that you’re sure to love if you don’t already listen. It’s important for those who have built their livelihoods around skiing to be able to express their views and thoughts and hopefully contribute to positive progression in the sport and culture. Stay tuned for more action from Alex, Magnus and the rest of The Bunch!
