#61 – Andy Mahre – Stoked to Ski Pow and Hit Cliffs
Andy Mahre comes from a very successful skiing family. His dad and his uncle are two of the most successful American skiers winning gold and silver medals at the Sarajevo Olympics among many other skiing achievements. It’s safe to say that Andy comes from a strong pedigree. Andy, after testing the waters in the racing scene, decided that he would much rather “…go ski pow and hit cliffs” .
He grew up in the small Washington town of Naches and learned to ski at White Pass Ski area. He spent his weekends at White Pass at his grandparents house skiing and building jumps in their yard practicing the skills that has made him one of the best skiers today.
I this episode we talk about the path he took and the influence his family had on his direction in skiing as well as dealing with injuries and the upcoming arrival of his first child with his wife Shannon
