The Storm Skiing Podcast is sponsored by Mountain Gazette - Listen to the podcast for discount codes on subscriptions and merch.WhoFrank DeBerry, President and CEO of Crystal Mountain, WashingtonRecorded onOctober 18, 2021Why I interviewed himBecause Crystal is one of the under-appreciated giants of North American skiing. It has more inbounds skiable terrain than Jackson Hole and gets more snow than any ski area in Colorado. It’s not overlooked nationally because it’s hidden. It’s owned by Alterra, is the Pacific Northwest star on the Ikon Pass, and is seated in the shadow of Mt. Rainier, just two hours from downtown Seattle. But Crystal lacks the substantial bed base that would promote it from ski area to ski resort, that would make someone from New York or LA line it up beside the Wasatch or Tahoe or the I-70 corridor as a vacation option. So it’s mostly a local. A damn big one, with lights-out skiing and a voracious skier base. Maybe too voracious, judging from the recent pow-day traffic jams dozens of miles long. This is a big mountain with big plans, and I wanted to talk to the conductor of all this madness to find out exactly where it was headed.What we talked aboutWorking at Mountain Creek when Intrawest bought the place and replaced the entire lift system in one summer; “it’s almost impossible to run Mountain Creek”; why Intrawest sold the mountain and others, including Whistler; West Virginia skiing and why you need to hit Snowshoe; Crystal’s “extraordinary” terrain and enormous snowfall; the culture shock of moving from the snow-starved East to the snow-choked West; why Mountain Creek and Crystal are “not that dissimilar”; avalanche mitigation; the “rabid” Pacific Northwest ski culture; why Crystal went from perennial hidden gem to one battling chronic overcrowding; whether the ski area could ever build up a larger bed base; the enormous challenge of Crystal’s endless two-lane, un-expandable access road; why Crystal was initially unlimited on the Ikon Base Pass and why that proved to be unsustainable; what happened to passholder numbers when Alterra moved unlimited Crystal access to the full Ikon Pass; why the mountain had to stop selling day tickets in early 2020; why you may want to ski holidays at Crystal; why Crystal is moving to paid parking and how that will fund a mass transit system from Enumclaw; the amazing number of parking spaces Crystal loses to snowbanks each season; operating buses amid Covid; what might replace the Rainier Express; the difference between out-of-base lift capacity and overall lift capacity; a bold proposal to move the current gondola and add another; potential expansion up Bullion Basin; why Crystal abandoned that terrain several decades ago; whether the second base area or the Kelly’s Gap high-speed quad proposed on the 2004 master plan could still happen; why we may see groomed terrain in Northway; whether Crystal would ever upgrade capacity on the Northway or Chair 6 doubles; why we’re unlikely to see a chair up Silver King; which terrain could be included in a night-skiing expansion and what it would take to make it happen; and the tradition of the long season at Crystal and why that’s in no danger of ending.Why I thought that now was a good time for this interview“Crystal Mountain Resort is the sleeping giant of the Northwest.” – Peak Ski Guide & Travel Planner, 1994“Outside of Seattle, Crystal Mountain remains largely unknown. Too bad, because Crystal is 2,300 acres and 3,100 vertical feet of romping grounds.” – Skiing, October 1995“The region gets little press, is ridden almost exclusively by locals, and received biblical precipitation. … One of my guides claims it takes a few days to tear up Crystal after a big dump.” – Skiing, October 1999Welp, things have changed. The 1990s version of Crystal was, according to Lift Blog, a time machine owned by a ski cooperative. Boyne bought the joint, fixed it up, and, after a brief stint as an indie, Crystal ended up in Alterra’s quiver. So: a modern ski area, on the Ikon Pass, in the shadow of an increasingly affluent metro Seattle population that has exploded from around 2.5 million to nearly 4 million in the past 25 years, 100 percent of whom access the ski area via an endless two-laner.It’s quite a mess. This offseason, Crystal made two huge moves to address the chronic overcrowding that’s now as predictable as the mountain’s monster snowstorms: significantly reduce Ikon Base Pass access and implement a paid parking program. These short-term moves are the first steps in an evolving master plan that should address parking shortages, increase out-of-base lift capacity, and improve the overall ski experience. Crystal has huge plans, especially around its lift fleet, and I wanted to give frustrated skiers a window into how their current ski-day woes may eventually subside.Questions I wish I’d askedIn August, I rode the Crystal gondola to the summit with my family. Base area signs warned of limited visibility, but we had driven all the way out there already and I like riding lifts anyway and so up we went. Wildfire smoke, everywhere erasing the horizon. Rainier, normally looming epochally over the ski area’s summit, was invisible. With Sierra-at-Tahoe facing a limited season after extensive wildfire damage and Heavenly and Kirkwood facing down fire threats, the ski industry is reckoning with climate change as an all-seasons threat. I would have loved to have gotten DeBerry’s take on what this means, both for Crystal and for the industry at large.Why you should ski CrystalI mean, well, just look at the place:When ski writers talk about a “skier’s mountain,” this is what they mean. Vast dominions of raging terrain dumping thousands of feet off the summit. Very little grooming. Buckets of snow. This is trailblazing skiing – pick your own route, any route, do your best not to die. And why not? They don’t have 5,000 tourists at the base area to keep happy. Let the other mountains string traverses across the fall line to zigzag green circle boulevards from the summit. Crystal is a mega-mountain that still feels primarily like a ski area for skiers. It’s a must-hit.Just go, you know, on a weekday.Additional reading/videosLift Blog’s inventory of Crystal Mountain liftsArchival Crystal trailmapsDeBerry refers to “John” frequently throughout our interview. He’s referencing John Kircher, former owner of Crystal Mountain and brother of Boyne Resorts CEO Stephen Kircher. Here’s a really good overview of why he sold the mountain to Alterra shortly after Vail bought Stevens.More on the great powder-day fiasco of 2020 that forced huge changes in how Crystal manages skiers and traffic.Gregory Scruggs wrote an outstanding compare-and-contrast of the trajectories of Crystal under Alterra and Stevens Pass under Vail:The two biggest rival corporations in ski resort management staked their claims in Washington state in 2018 by purchasing two of the Central Cascades’ most beloved ski areas.Vail Resorts, based in Broomfield, Colorado, bought Stevens Pass, the lovably crusty ski area on one of the continent’s snowiest mountain passes reachable by road; meanwhile, Denver-based Alterra Mountain Company snapped up Crystal Mountain, a resort founded by Seattle ski bums at the edge of Mount Rainier National Park.…Numerous interviews with season pass holders from both resorts show that Crystal Mountain provided customers with a premier experience amid tough pandemic conditions — though this comes at a premier price. Meanwhile, Stevens Pass slashed the price of its Epic Pass last month in an attempt to make skiing more affordable after a season in which its operational struggles frustrated many longtime pass holders.

The Storm Skiing Podcast is sponsored by Mountain Gazette - Listen to the podcast for discount codes on subscriptions and merch.WhoTim Cohee, Managing Partner, CEO, and General Manager of China Peak Mountain Resort, CaliforniaRecorded onSeptember 28, 2021Why I interviewed himBecause China Peak, an independent operation situated on the Southwest side of California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, sits at the bullseye of multiple issues shaping the modern lift-served skiing landscape. Climate change is descending in all seasons: seven winter snow droughts in the past 10 years; wildfire scraping the resort’s edges and damaging buildings in 2020. The mega-resorts with their super-cheap megapasses beckon the local Fresno skiers that are China Peak’s core constituency. And not just California’s many Epic and Ikon gems – Palisades Tahoe, Kirkwood, Heavenly, Northstar – but the resorts dotted all around the West – it takes the same amount of time to fly to Salt Lake City from Fresno as it does to drive to China Peak. But, like most mid-sized ski areas around the country, China Peak is stamping out a model to survive and hopefully thrive in this era of consolidation, cheap travel, and climate catastrophe: banding together with other independent mountains on the Indy Pass and Powder Alliance, and investing in a powerful New England-style snowmaking system capable of burying the place and (hopefully) fending off fires. And if you’re going to initiate such massive and dramatic change, it helps to have a charismatic leader with more than 40 years of experience dealing with every possible circumstance a snowy mountain can churn out. Skiing needs the China Peaks to thrive if skiing itself is to survive long-term, and I wanted to see how Cohee planned to do that.What we talked aboutThe Southern California ski scene in the 1970s; the Cohee family ski diaspora and their potential future at China Peak; the 1970s vacuum in ski-area marketing; the surreal reality of Southern California skiing; when the massive city below doesn’t know about the abundant skiing in the mountains above; what it took to get same-day snow conditions video from the mountain to the local news station 40 years ago; working for Bill Killebrew at Heavenly; the smartest guy in the history of skiing; quadrupling skier visits at Bear Mountain né Goldmine; how “skiing’s dream team” emerged from a 1990s version of Bear Mountain to run some of the largest ski areas in the country; moving east and working under Les Otten in the heyday of the American Skiing Company; reviving a declining Kirkwood; leaving the ski area after 17 years to buy China Peak (known at the time as Sierra Summit); what happens when a ski area ignores the customer; How and why China Peak overhauled its snowmaking system and how that’s going to change the resort; and what happens when your snowmaking manager quits over Christmas break.Why I thought that now was a good time for this interviewFor most of its first two years, The Storm Skiing Podcast focused mostly on the Northeast. In order to capture the true breadth and spirit of the region, it was important to me to maintain a balance between monster, conglomerate-owned ski areas and the-owner-drives-the-Snowcat family-owned hills. So episodes featuring Killington, Sunday River, Sugarbush, Sugarloaf, Loon, and Mount Snow lived alongside interviews with the folks running Plattekill, Berkshire East, Bolton Valley, Titus, Whaleback, Mad River Glen, and Lonesome Pine. The ski world is big and messy, and the podcast had to reflect that.As I expand the pod’s focus from the Northeast to the entire country, I will deliberately follow that same template. My first two western interviews – Taos and Aspen – are ski-world A-listers, checkbox items for the Ikon set, places with deep resonance and meaning for generations of locals and tourists. China Peak is something different. Once knowns as Sierra Summit, it’s a local bump that no one’s flying across the country to ski. But that’s exactly why I’m here: what the hell is this place, this mysterious Indy Pass partner wading in a purgatory south of the Sierra badboys? It’s been there for 63 years and no one outside of Fresno has ever heard of it. But like all ski areas, it means a tremendous amount to a lot of people out there, and it’s an important part of this American ski story that I’m trying to tell.Questions I wish I’d askedFor a typical Storm Skiing Podcast interview, I’ll write 25 to 30 questions and manage to get to around 80 percent of them. This time, I got through six. Cohee’s 40-plus-year journey through the ski industry during its decades of explosive change was so compelling that we didn’t even get to China Peak until we were nearly out of time. So all of my normal questions about chairlifts, trail networks, local markets, snowfall, fire danger, the Indy Pass, the Powder Alliance, and the wild world of Covid will just have to wait until next time – and you will want there to be a next time after you hear this.Why you should ski China PeakChina Peak is an interesting place. It’s more or less at the end of the road, on the way to nowhere, close to nothing at all. Mammoth, 30-ish miles away as the crow flies, is a five-hour drive. Because it’s not big enough to merit destination status in a state overloaded with alpha ski resorts, it’s mostly a day tripper’s hill for Fresno, an hour-and-a-half southwest. But there’s no rule that it has to be. An Indy Pass and Powder Alliance member, China Peak is a walk-up proposition for many skiers on their existing passes. The trail map looks fun, especially after a big snow, but the mountain’s new megahose snowmaking system ought to guarantee more stable conditions even when the snow fails to materialize. This would make a nice stop on any California ski tour.Additional reading/videosLift Blog’s China Peak lift inventoryHistoric China Peak/Sierra Summit trailmapsSome Slopefillers love for CoheeSAM($) profiles China Peak’s new snowmaking system Fires approaching China Peak last September:Cohee on video: Get on the email list at www.stormskiing.com

Last Chair kicks off season three with an in-depth interview with Utah's own Olympic champion.Check out these stats: 25 World Cup wins, five crystal globes, five World Championship titles and two Olympic gold medals. Not a bad career for the Utah native.With a growing family (wife Mia and three sons) back home and his Utah-based global business, Shred, Ligety decided to retire last February. And he's anxious to make a few fun runs of his own on the slopes of Utah's Deer Valley Resort this winter.This blockbuster season three opening episode of Last Chair will introduce you to the Park City native and take you inside his view of skiing. Here's some of what's in store on Last Chair. Some of his own faves for skiing in Utah. How an Olympic defeat in 2010 inspired him to the greatest years of his career.  His favorite GoPro edit.  From an athlete who's skied in over 50 countries, his global favorites.  His best date night dinner back home.  And, of course, his favorite High West whiskey. How old were you when mom and dad trusted you to be on your own at the resort?I think it was pretty young, probably like five or six years old. So I tell that to my wife, Mia, and she's like, 'No way! We're not leaving Jax to the mountain like next year or the year after. But yeah, like, I think when I was seven, maybe eight, I would take my younger brother - so pretty young age ripping around the mountains. And it was fun. I mean, it's such an awesome way to grow up and explore.Ted, you weren't viewed as a future star as a junior racer. Did hard work make the difference?One hundred percent! What was good about not being dominant at a young age was that I had to work harder. I had that work ethic instilled, had that hunger instilled in me. I was forced to take risks and explore and ask different questions than guys that were good. You're now a ski ambassador for Deer Valley, a role Stein Eriksen held for many years. What do you remember of him from growing up here?I grew up skiing in Deer Valley and watching Stein ski, and it was funny. As a kid you would kind of make fun of Stein's style - he had a very distinct style. I skied with him on the NASTAR course once when I was probably like 14 years old. all of a sudden he was like, wham, right into amodern race stance and like beating all of us 13, 14 year olds. And he was probably in his 70s then. Stein was still a competitive guy even even later on. And, you know, he was an inspiration, for sure, growing up here.Ted, what's the spirit that motivates you?"I love just being out in the outdoors, being in the mountains, especially when there's snow on them. It's like a cleansing feeling being out there - this freedom to go fast, ski down a hill, the wind in your face. It's exhilarating. It's just magical being on the mountains,Check out more with Ted Ligety on Last Chair: The Ski Utah Podcast presented by High West Distillery and Saloon on your favorite podcast platform.

Picture a winter vacation in the mountains. You're probably imagining a wood cabin, sitting by a fire in a cozy blanket, skiing, and a deep denial of hypothermia. You're probably not picturing bunches of bananas and trains to Omaha. And yet, that's the exact *ahem* train of thought that led James Curran to the invention of the chairlift at America's first-ever destination ski resort in 1936. James challenged the industry standard when it came to skiing transportation. He pushed technology so far that people had to confront how they'd done things in the past. And, as often happens, he encountered some serious resistance.

Episode 294 of The Outdoor Biz Podcast with Jack Wolfskin US General Manager Diana Seung. We talk about how Diana got into the Outdoor Biz, how a sociocultural anthropology major gets into retail, merchandising, and eCommerce, and plenty more. Facebook Twitter Instagram   The Outdoor Biz Podcast   Please give us a rating and review HERE Show Notes Diana Seung Jack Wolfskin Callaway Show Notes How were you introduced to the outdoors? A very unexpected call from a recruiter. So I had a recruiter call me and say, I have this amazing opportunity with backcountry.com. And I misheard her as like bat country like a bat. I was like, what's Backcountry? I've never even heard of this company. She's oh, they're in Utah. I'm like, oh, no way in hell. I was living in New York City at the time. And I'm like, there's no way I'm going to Utah of all places, I'm a city girl, lived in New York City, San Francisco, like through and through. She's why don't you just talk to them? Just have a conversation more informal. Yeah, just learn about them. I'm like, I'll be, open-minded, I'll speak to them. So I have a call with them. And at that point, we realized it's backcountry. Not bat country, backcountry was a new term for me too. That's how foreign the outdoor world was.  So finally put two and two together and had a conversation. Crazy enough, I actually had a personal trip planned to go out to park city. A girlfriend of mine had just moved out here and I was coming out to visit her. So I'd mentioned to them, it's so funny that I'm getting this call and I'm speaking to you all cause park, city's never been on my radar. And my girlfriend just moved out there. I'm headed out there in three weeks to visit her. And they're like when you're in town, why don't you just swing in, check out the offices, get to know us. We'll tell you a little bit more about the opportunity. I said sure, why not that quickly transpired into being an all-day long, six-person interview back to back with a presentation. And then before I knew it, I was flying out here again several weeks later for another interview and got the offer and I thought, gosh, do I really want to move out to Utah and do something totally different in the outdoor industry? At that point, I'd spent seven years in Children's Wear prior to that I was in fashion and I thought, heck, why not? Let's try something different. This could be a really cool experience. And so I packed my bag and moved out here and I thought to myself if I hate it I can move back. But I might like it and five years later I'm still here. How does a sociocultural anthropology major get into retail, merchandising, and e-commerce? So college for me was about getting exposure to things that I probably never have the opportunity to learn again. So I took that opportunity just to take courses that were interesting. I was like, let me just have some fun here. So I majored in socio-cultural anthropology, which is definitely a mouthful. It's the study of cultures and more indigenous cultures and communities around the world. And then from there, I also did a minor in Africana studies cause Cornell, which is where I went had an amazing Africana studies program and center. Then I did a concentration in Asian American studies. So for me, it was like, let me learn about people and cultures and ethnicities and human behavior. And that was interesting. And I thought to myself if I don't do it in college, I probably won't get the opportunity to learn it elsewhere. So I did just that and always had the intent of going probably somewhere in the retail route and grew up with that. My father was a small business owner, he had his own small retail shops, jewelry business for a long time. So growing up I would hop in the van with him up to New York and the jewelry, wholesale district. So learned it very grassroots from him. How did you get connected with Jack Wolfskin? I left Backcountry and at that point, I was searching for a new role, and crazy enough, I was on a family vacation and an old colleague, Russ Hopcus he's the president of prAna had texted me. He said, Hey, look I just got connected to the CEO of Callaway golf. They just acquired Jack Wolfson and they're looking for talent and I gave him your name. I told him you're on the market. And he sends me this text and I kid you not within 24 hours Chip Brewer, the CEO of Callaway is calling me. He says Hey, I got your name from Russ. Do you have time to connect? And I'm like, sure. So we have an hour-long conversation and we talk about what he's trying to do. Build out a team for Jack Wolfskin north America. Within two weeks I'm flying out there and then a week later I've got a job offer and I'm like, whoa, what did I just sign up for? In your two years here what have been the biggest challenges? So when we came on board, it wasn't like tools were handed to us and it was just plug and play. Apparel as a business is newer for Callaway. And so we were implementing an ERP system. We had to launch our own website. And those building blocks take time and a lot of energy. So we knew that was always going to be a challenge, but that was the fun challenge. That's what we wanted to all do. And that's what we signed up for. But then to layer COVID on top of that, it's whoa, now we're going to be pushing a boulder up the hill to start. But now we're pushing up five boulders up the hill and COVID was definitely unforeseen by all of us, total curveball. I went out and had a whole strategy and plan of what we were going to do. And then when COVID hit, it was like, whoa, screeching, halt. Let's readjust. Do you feel like your team has gotten even closer? Because you've all had to deal with that? This team is phenomenal. And they all have their unique personalities. They all gel together play off of each other really well. And so it's very complimentary and very colonial. And I think that's the only reason why we were able to survive COVID right. And get through the pandemic because they all had such a great attitude and just a willingness to just conquer this journey and just get through it and just figure it out, despite whatever challenges came their way. You're also a board member and were the interim director at Camber. Tell us a bit about that. For those listening who have never heard of it, it's Camber Outdoors, they've been around for many years. They originally started as a networking group for women in the outdoor industry. They went from a women's networking group and then evolved to be a 501 C3 nonprofit around equity for gender within the outdoor industry. And that has since evolved even further to more diversity equity inclusion in the workplace in general. So a really great mission, really great vision, and amazing staff. I was privileged enough to have the opportunity to step in when Deanna stepped down and serve as our executive director. At that point, I had been serving on the board. I think it was my second year in and she just happened to leave Backcountry. So I was available to step into that role. And it was a humbling experience. I have to give a lot of credit to folks who do DEI work day in, day out, and professionally because it's very difficult work. What outdoor activities do you participate in these days? Moving and living in Utah has definitely opened my eyes to a lot more than I grew up doing. It was mainly hiking, do some fishing-type stuff, but nothing crazy, skied, a little bit as a child. So coming back out to Utah as an adult, I've gone back into skiing. Which has been a lot of fun. So that's my winter sport of choice. I also own a pair of snowshoes, which I never thought I would. So that's a fun activity for me. And then in the summer you usually find me hiking. I attempted one year to try mountain biking and had a horrible accident. So I've since said no to mountain biking and now have an e-bike. So I'm sticking to the pavement. Do you have any suggestions or advice for folks wanting to get into the outdoors? Network get to know folks, I think now, more than ever. There is a greater appetite in the outdoor industry to bring in folks who are not from the industry. I think companies are recognizing the value of having folks that come from other industries with that different experience. And, they just come with different ideas and different ways to challenge the business. And that's extremely valuable. Because the outdoor industry has plateaued a bit, and there's a lot of opportunities to continue that growth. I think oftentimes, especially for women, they look at a job description and when it says must have outdoor experience, they're like, oh, I don't have that, So I'm not even gonna apply. And actually, that was one of the things we took off the job description. And right off the bat, we saw a tremendous amount of more female candidates applying. So just in general, I'd say don't be afraid to apply. Don't be afraid to, get rejected here and there cause that's just how the job searching process goes. But eventually, if you find the right fit, it could be a really great career. What's your favorite piece of outdoor gear under a hundred dollars? I have to say I'm so thankful when I had that mountain biking accident that I was wearing a helmet, and I still have my Smith helmet. It is crushed in at the top and it's got blood all over it and I just saved it. I don't even know why. But thank goodness for that, because it totally saved my life. And I am a true believer of helmets while riding your bike while the ski slopes. Is there anything else you'd like to ask or say of our listeners before we wrap up? I have to say five years in the outdoor industry, it's been amazing. I think the folks in the industry, what I love the most is just there's this common thread of passion and appreciation for outdoor activities, nature, wellness, health. And I think it's so balanced. I really just appreciate folks being so open-minded to introducing folks that aren't as immersed in the outdoor space like myself and, welcoming me into the industry and into those activities, and showing me how fun they can be. Because without those friends I wouldn't have had that exposure. So I'm so appreciative of that, and that just speaks volumes of the industry that we're in. It's a great community. It's such a great community. Follow Up with Diana Linkedin Snippets 01:46 - 02:09 How did you get into the Outdoor Business?

Hello again, Everyone! In this week’s episode of the show, we talk about Sports in the In Death World! This was actually a really fun topic, even for someone like AJ who doesn’t sports! We start out discussing the Olympics in the future and what games would Eve and Roarke go see if they attended the games in 2020/2022/2024. For winter sports, we decided Eve and Roarke would stick to downhill Skiing, Ski Jumping, Snowboarding, the Biathalon and those sorts of snow sports. But we don’t think they would be Ice Skating people or Curling, though we would love to see Eve watching curling and trying to figure out what the hell kind of sport is that? For summer sports, we generally agreed that any combat/fighting sports like boxing or karate would be a given, as well as Baseball, Basketball, and probably Rugby and Soccer. And of course any of the shooting sports or Archery. Swimming and Diving might also be on their itinerary. Jen thinks they would go see Gymnastics, and AJ thinks they would like Fencing. Roarke, being the perv that he is would convince Eve to watch Women’s Beach Volleyball. We then talk about Arena Ball vs Football, and have a little off topic discussion about head injuries in Football. Last we talk about Eve’s main sport, Baseball and the many baseball references in this series. As a bonus, AJ mentions an unconventional Summerset fancasting pick, and we’re making somewhat of a game out of it. See the attached photo and let us know who you think it might be!

In this episode of GLOSS, or the Gorgeous Ladies of Snowboarding and Skiing—an ongoing series between Crude and Blower Media—I talk with professional snowboarder Madison Blackley. Madison found her way into snowboarding by way of Volcom's Peanut Butter and Rail Jam competition. Fresh out of high school, she won the competition at Brighton in 2007. From there, she made it to the finals, where she got 3rd place and Best Trick. It was a formative moment in her career—it put her riding in front of industry people and it introduced her to other riders who have continued to be part of her life. These free competitions, with gear and prize money, are few and far between now, making it difficult for many newcomers to enter the sport as aspiring professionals. The elimination of them has bottlenecked the industry into invite-only competitions, where only certain riders are chosen. And if this trend continues, then less and less new riders are able to enter the industry. Madison has an encyclopedic knowledge of women in snowboarding. She collects their stats like baseball cards—the spots they've hit and the tricks they've done. This helps her understand her peers as well as her place in snowboarding. As a woman, she says that in order for there to be more equity in the sport, the industry needs to stop marginalizing women. For example, she says that all-female videos have the potential to alienate them from the larger culture of snowboarding rather than allowing them to be part of established projects that feature both men and women.

Welcome to episode 291 of The Outdoor Biz Podcast with Matt Bennett and ECHOS Brand Communications. In our wide-ranging conversation, we talk about how Matt got into the Outdoor Biz, the REVEAL Global Media Conference, Sobriety, Sustainability, and plenty more. Facebook Twitter Instagram   The Outdoor Biz Podcast   Please give us a rating and review HERE   Show Notes ECHOS Brand Communications Matt Bennett How were you introduced to the Outdoors Yeah, it's funny, I think there's this idea that if you grow up in Boulder, Colorado, you're just by nature, an outdoor kid. And that's not really the case, there's a lot of people here that just that's not their thing. And it's just a place to live and it was. As a little kid, you think everybody's staring up at the flat irons like you are. And you just take it for granted, but yeah, I grew up pretty close in south Boulder just to the mountains. We would just walk out and that was the entertainment. You'd walk out and you'd hike up and goof around and you build a Fort or whatever it was. And so that was part of being a Colorado kid. And my folks were into camping and I started skiing at a young age, doing Nordic and then downhill. And obviously downhill, really the speed and the fun of it really caught me. And then I started like gen one mountain biking when that took off. I was going to mountain bike camps as a little kid, pre-suspension, right? And as a kid going up to Crested Butte for mountain bike camps in the eighties or whatever it was, I had a lot of different experiences. And I love it. It's changed over time. Now the focus is on my kids and getting them out there, but I still have to get my fun in as well. You have a lot of experience in communications in PR how'd you get on that path? It's interesting, cause I went to school for international affairs, Undergrad. And then I did a master's degree at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, which is a really small school in California. And so I was on this track for, diplomacy. A lot of the people go into government agencies or the department of defense or whatever it was. And I was on that track and I got my degree and I moved out to DC and was interviewing for jobs. And then I ended up connecting with a public affairs firm out there. And that's really what kicked my career off. They hired me as a writer and I'd always been into the writing and the communication side of it. They say, your first job really sets your career in some ways. And it sure did for me, because I'd been on one track and it took me on a totally different track where all of a sudden, I was like in this, more of a government. Circle doing communications around governments, whether it's legislation or initiatives and obviously that's DC. So I worked for that firm for eight years and two years as a writer and then I started managing programs. We had teams in Mississippi and Arkansas, New York and Vermont. So it was all these different things going on and a great experience for sure. But it was one of those burn hot types of jobs. Couldn't do it forever, but you could go like hell for 10 years, right? From an experienced standpoint, it was amazing. Tell us about ECHOS Communications We are a public relations agency specializing in outdoor and active lifestyle brands. Media relations are a huge part of what we do. We do storytelling, we also do affiliate marketing when it's assigned to that social media, the gamut of communications. affiliate marketing. It's assigned to that social media, the gamut of communications. We look at what our clients need and come in and design a program, tailored to them depending on where they are. I would say the core, the brands that we really specialize in are those that capture something beyond what would be seen as their endemic audience. So if they're outdoor they also have this broader audience. In lifestyle or in streetwear her or whatever that is. And so we really specialize in brands that have, or want to transcend beyond what would be seen as their endemic audience. Sobriety has been a pretty important part of your life. Tell us a little bit about that. I wasn't a huge drinker, but it was consistent, and it was one of those things that I just I needed to change. I've been sober for going on four years and change now. And, it's interesting because I didn't realize how deep it was in my life until it went away. The family side of it has obviously been the biggest thing, just because I'm more present. I'm here with my family helping where I necessarily wasn't before. And then on the professional side of course I can show up as I've never shown up before. I think it's an important thing for us to talk about in the industry, especially now that inclusivity and everything is just such a focus. I do think there's a lot of what we do in the outdoor industry that revolves around drink. I'm not here to change anybody's mind or try to change anybody's mind. This is my choice and my choice alone. And I can't tell anybody else what to do, but I just, I guess my thing is. I've been to some of the events and I'm like, Hey, do you have anything else? And they say there's a drinking fountain over there. And I guess that would be my first thing is just provide something else. Just provide an option. Cause I do think that's so important in this industry where it's nice to see the conversation happening. How about the industry events like trade shows, how do you think those are changing and what do you think that means for the future? As an agency, we fully appreciate and enjoy the industry events, Outdoor Retailer of course. That's been the core. I just think it's going to change a little bit and we're already seeing it with The Big Gear Show. There've been others in the past, whether it's Outpost or others that have created an alternate and very appealing experience for people. And I do think the cost at the end of the day is a huge thing that, especially after this year is going to come up. What did it look like last year? And now we're going back? And I think there are a lot of brands that are going to have to really look at that and evaluate, and that by necessity is going to change things up. Where do we go? Where do we allocate these dollars? But at the end of the day, people love to go to. And it's a great place to have a brand presence. So I don't think it's going anywhere. I just think it's going to look a little different. Let's talk a little bit about sustainability. That's another thing that seems like we're walking the line of creating a bunch of stuff and calling it sustainable or creating the same stuff, what can we do about that? I think it starts with the term itself. I think we're getting desensitized to the term sustainability because it's so broad. What does it mean anymore? What I've heard lately is this, if we're creating something, whatever it is how could that be sustainable? Take LIVSN, I've chatted with Andrew and it's fascinating to hear his thoughts on it. Cause he's just straight up and I know he doesn't have 500 skus and that's by design. But how do we cut some of the products that just don't need to exist in the first place and stop making stuff? I love new stuff, I love it when our brands launch new stuff that's music to our ears because we didn't get to go out there and talk about it. But at the same time, from a sustainability standpoint, it's tough to continue to do that cycle. And that's a hard conversation to have. Can it ever be successful? Can we call it sustainable? Maybe we start talking about something else, responsibility or whatever that is that takes a different, more realistic tack about if we are creating a bunch of products, whatever those products are at the end of the day, will they ever be sustainable? What other outdoor activities do you still do? I'm a huge cyclist. I do road, gravel, and mountain biking, and I just absolutely love that. That's my kind of day-to-day thing. It keeps me feeling great. I run if I have to if I don't have a bike but then skiing, I do Downhill and Nordic. I started doing backcountry last year. Do you have any advice or suggestions for folks wanting to get into the outdoor business? I'm looking at the skills more than necessarily the experience in our industry. If you can write, if you can communicate, if you get what we're doing, then that's more important and worked in the outdoor industry before. I think and I think for employers, we should be more open to hiring people outside the industry for sure. I know it's tough you get someone with great potential, coming from a similar brand or agency, and that's very appealing. But I do think there are a lot of people who want to be in this industry that would be fantastic. They just don't have experience in what would qualify, roughly as outdoor experience. But I have no problem, in fact, I think it appeals to me for someone that's really excited and wants to be part of this. What's your favorite outdoor gear purchase? Under a hundred. Hacky Sack This probably nails me as a quintessential Boulder kid, but a hacky sack. I have a $10 hacky, and it travels well, it's small and it is just the source of more fun. Whether you're traveling or backpacking or at the campsite or wherever it's just great. You bust it out, people start playing other people join. It's just a riot.

Ibex GM Bonie Shupe tells about her Independent design work, traveling with the family bluegrass band, the great new things happening with ibex, and running to fish. Facebook Twitter Instagram   The Outdoor Biz Podcast   Please give us a rating and review HERE Show Notes How were you introduced to the outdoors? I grew up traveling around in a family bluegrass band, and so we spent a lot of our time traveling all over the United States and camping at different bluegrass festivals. And my first experience in the outdoors that I remember is trying to catch fireflies because it was so foreign to me. I grew up in Utah and we were traveling back in the south. And so the fireflies were really, probably the first outdoor experience that I remember. But the one thing that we did do every year, that's probably my first outdoor adventure was backpacking in the wind river and camping. Do you play an instrument? Yeah, I grew up playing the fiddle, playing the fiddle, and clog dancing is what my parents had in store for me. And I also play the bass and the drums. How did you get into design? I've always been a visual designer and I've always been really interested in apparel. I think I just followed my passion to get here. The idea of combining fashion and function has always been something that's really helped me become where I become an outdoor apparel designer. And you've had your own studio for a long time, too. What inspired you to go that route? I started independently right out of the gate. I had done graphic design in the outdoor space for a long time before basically following my passion for fashion. And because I was doing graphic design before, I decided that I really needed to follow my passion too. Design outdoor, and activewear for the outdoor industry. Then I went back to school and once I finished school, I just followed my connections and ended up getting to design apparel in the outdoor space. I've always really enjoyed working for myself and having my own creative schedule.  How did you get involved with Ibex? I was a huge fan of Ibex for a lot of years. So as an apparel designer, one of my biggest ambitions is to combine fashion and function, to reduce consumption. And when you create apparel that can easily slide from the outdoor space into cities and travel, you're really able to create these multifunctional pieces and reduce consumption overall. And I think of IBEX as City to Slope before it was cool. They were always creating that. I was just a huge fan and they were always innovating wools. So they're like the original wool innovators. And I remember IBEX as being like the first to innovate wool seamless. They did wool air, they did clima-wool, they did wool denim, right before they went out of business there was the Pursuit Jacket that was a hundred percent Merino wool rain jacket. But even when they started, I have this boiled wool jacket that is so warm and yet, so uniquely set stylish that it's one of my favorite pieces. I like I'm really obsessed with wool. And I think there's this underbelly crowd of wool enthusiasts who love IBEX because they were wool innovators and I'm one of them. What, what are some of the learnings you've had in resurrecting the brand, does anything stand out? I would say that balancing small batch, no waste production with demand is a huge thing that I'm working through. I really believe that every garment of Ibex needs to find a good home and I don't want to make so many products that we have to put them on sale. That's not, it's not a sustainable way to run a brand. And so that balance, finding that balance between demand and small batch production and making sure that everything is just beautiful and top quality has been hard to get to. So we've really been focusing on inventory planning. What has been the toughest challenge of rebuilding relationships? I've had to clear the air. There are customers who loved IBEX and they didn't want to see a change. They were burned when IBEX pulled out of their wholsale partners. And I'm working on rekindling and building those relationships and then even re reconnecting with suppliers has been a huge challenge when Ibex went out of business, all those connections where we're pretty much dropped at the time. And so it's been like reaching out and saying, Hey, we're back in business. And everyone's just been a little wary, but I feel like slowly but surely I think people who have worked with the brand have found us to be authentic and really wanting to build IVEX back to where it was. Do you have a favorite style from the current lineup? I wear the Woolies Tech Top pretty much every day. And then with a pair of Joggers, that's my go-to. What outdoor activities do you get to participate in? I really enjoy endurance and being strong in general. I try to keep a really good base so that I can do whatever I want during the year. I think in my friend group, I'm known as the solid buddy. So when my friends get wild ideas, they know that they can count on me to be a member of their team on anything they do. I do a little bit of everything. I'm that Jack of all trades master of none. I think the latest thing that I've been doing that I just absolutely love is because I live in Netherland and I have a bunch of trailheads with lakes. So I bring my fishing rod and I like to run to fish. Do you have any suggestions or advice for folks wanting to get into the outdoor industry? I would say that you need to let your passion be your guide. This is an industry that you don't get into to make money. You get into it because it's rewarding. It's an industry that you want to be in. So think about what part of the outdoor industry you love, what really drives you as a person, and then if you follow that, I think the rest will follow. If you were able to hang a huge banner at the entrance to one of the outdoor shows, what would it say? "Buy less, buy better" I want that to serve as that mantra for Ibex, but it's also a recommendation for the entire show. I think that's what the outdoor industry should be built on, the idea of fewer higher-quality things. Do you have any favorite books or books you give as gifts?
