#106 Freeride World Tour – Behind the Scenes at Kicking Horse Golden, BC

The LPP spent a week in Golden, BC Canada at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort for the Freeride World Tour.  We wanted to get a better idea of what goes on behind the scenes, from all angles, at a big ski event like this one.

 

In this episode, you’ll hear us talk with legendary snowboarder and FWT judge Tom Bert on the judging criteria and what the judges are looking for in each rider’s line.  We also connected with Kyle Hale, head patroller at Kicking Horse on how they had to adapt their operation to accommodate the event.  Jim Alran who is the operations manager for the FWT explains how he and his team have to address everything from location, weather, electrical capacity, equipment, transportation and a hundred other details just to get ready to start.  Finally we are joined by Logan Pehota who explains the what the week is like from the perspective of the skiers.
