When I took over as Editor in Chief,  I promoted him to photo editor of the publication.  When launching Snowboard Magazine, I tapped him to be the first Editor, creating what are known as the best snowboarding magazines in the history of the sport.  After a brief independent stint, Jeff was lured back to work for Snowboarder to take on a high pay, high pressure position, selling ads as publisher of the magazine.  That said, the first half of the interview focuses on the current state of media in the sport of snowboarding. The second half covers his background and ride in the sport.         Today's episode brought to you by Artilect http://artilect.studio Cardiff Snowcraft http://cardiffsnow.com Baldface Lodge http://baldface.com Tow Pro Lifts http://towpro-lifts.com Owner Operator HTTP://owneroperator.us United Shapes  http://unitedshapes.us 686 Outerwear http://686.com Electrovoice Microphones http://electrovoice.com

Upon graduating high school he promptly moved to colorado - in no small part to watching the seminal Mack Dawg film The Hard, The Hungry and the Homeless. And in his first season out West he started what many would consider one of the important brands in the history of the sport Tech 9. In this episode we hear all about the ups and downs of being an entrepreneur in the sport of snowboarding.  Indeed, starting a brand is no get rich quick scheme as many might expect - it is in fact lon g hours, empty bank accounts - and doing something you believe in. During his time running Tech 9 Ethan picked up another skill - becoming a photographer - then senior photographer for snowboarder Magazine. But riders want to ride - and E Stone is a rider, starting The Bombhole podcast with pro snowboarder Chris Grenier.  This is an interesting episode - the backstory of a legend in the sport, lessons from playing multiple positions across the industry and healthy passion for the fun of snowboarding.

    THE SNOWBOARD PROJECT Pro Files : Jeremy Tofte Jeremy grew up in the shadow of Mt. Baker, in Mt. Vernon Washington, home of Craig Kelly, Dano Donnelly and the MBHC. Growing up in one of snowboardings' favorite spots gave him exposure to then world's best, which quickly quashed his dreams of pro rider super stardom - but Jeremy wanted to see where snowboarding could take him - so he set out in an old VW van for a road trip that would eventually take him to Jackson Hole. It was many years and odd jobs before he started the Thai Me Up restaurant in Jackson - which led to the founding Melvin Brewing.    After winning three medals at their first American Beer Festival - Melvin quickly became a household name in craft brewing circles.    Staying true to his roots in snowboarding and brewing, Jeremy has kept his brewery independent - in a world where small craft beer labels get regularly snapped up by the larger, international brands.    This is a story of a snowboarder turned entrepreneur who never gave up on his first passion - riding.  This week's interview is brought to you by Melvin Brewing, Cardiff Snowcraft,  Never Summer Industries Tow Pro Lifts and United Shapes.
