Rank #1: Available Light: Jimmy Chin.
After he graduated from college in 1996, Jimmy Chin hit the road, planning to climb and ski for a year before heading to grad school. Twenty-two years later, he’s still adventuring in the mountains. In this episode, we discuss Chin’s life growing up in small-town Minnesota as the son of Chinese immigrants and his path to adventure photography. Plus: his take on filming Alex Honnold’s free solo of El Cap and skiing with his daughter.
Rank #2: Death and Climbing: David Roberts.
By 1965, at age 22, David Roberts had witnessed three fatal accidents in the mountains. Over 50 years since, Roberts has explored in writing what makes climbing worth the risk. In this episode, Roberts discusses an article he wrote for Alpinist 56, in which he revisits “moments of doubt.”
Sponsored is a weekly show hosted by Mike Powell that goes deep into the lives and stories of professional skiers. Each show will include an interview with a different skier, and discuss how they moved up the ranks from amateur to professional, and wherethey are now. Throughout these conversations, we'll find out the obstacles these skiers had to overcome, the experiences that defined their careers, the injuries, and regrets.About Mike Powell: I’ve spent my career in action sports athlete management and worked with the best skiers in the world during a 16 year career at K2 Skis. I’ve also MC’d events around the world for K2, Redbull, and POWDER.
Rank #1: Sponsored, Episode 9: Glen Plake, part one.
Glen Plake, the most recognizable skier ever, is still punk. Despite the fame and his perspective on skiing is still humble, interesting, refreshing, and honest. On this episode of Powder Radio's "Sponsored" podcast, the first in a three-part series with Plake, he tells host Mike Powell talks about the influence of the hot-dogging era, and the loss it represented to skiing, when an over-litigious society destroyed it. "All the innocence and freewheeling spirit of skiing was basically ripped out from it it and basically goes into this stagnant, awful world or interpretation, unfortunately, we're still in," says Plake. "We chipped at the foundation but haven't made a big difference." Plake also recognizes the influence of that era, especially Bobbie Burns. He thinks nothing happening today is as original. "I have a hard time thinking that I started anything. I was just another link in the chain," says Plake. "I really don't think anything Tanner did was revolutionary, I don't think anything going on today is revolutionary at all, it's simply an extension of the hot-dogging era."

Rank #2: Sponsored, Episode 28: Pep Fujas.
On this episode of the "Sponsored" podcast, Pep Fujas, one of the most influential skiers of the 21st century, joins host Mike Powell. Known for his seminal segment in Session 1242, his role in Nimbus films, and his successful pro models, Fujas, who grew up in a yurt in Oregon without electricity or a phone, is also the father of two young daughters. The two discuss balancing fatherhood and travel and Fujas' influence on skiing, including the pole-less style he helped lead. "Sometimes we'd drop the poles and you just get to experience a different way to move on the mountain," says Fujas. "Your hands are free, you can feel free to brush the snow, and since you're not thinking about having the poles in your hand, you can move in a lot of different ways and it starts to refine your movements, starts to quiet everything down, because if you have really erratic hand movements, it just looks terrible, and it's really hard to make skiing look without poles look really good. So I think it was just another way to express yourself on skis and it was really fun and we didn't really care what anybody thought." 1:51: Recap his season travels as a father of two children under 2 years old 4:15: Life has totally changed for Pep in the past three years 6:22: Growing up in Oregon, in a yurt10:30: How did he get into skiing and what else is going on in life?14:55: Boarding school, moguls, and competition17:20: What skiers did Pep look up to?18:35: How did the sponsors find him?21:12: Pro models and the money he made23:22: How did Nimbus come together and what did that entail?25:31: Dropping his poles, HellBents in the X Games28:35: What is the focus of his ski career these days and getting dropped by Oakley

Rank #1: Alaska Vibes: Conrad Anker.
Over the course of an distinguished 30+ year career, Conrad Anker’s adventures have taken him from the bigwalls of Yosemite, to the icy flanks of The Alaska Range, The Himalaya and Antarctica. Although Anker is probably best-known for discovering Mallory's remains on the north side of Everest in 1999 (or his stunning climb up Meru), it’s his earlier adventures in Alaska that I’ve always been fascinated with. •That’s why I was excited to sit down with Conrad this past February, to talk about his formative experiences in the mountains, the friends and partners that meant the most to him, as well as his efforts in environmental activism. Having flown to Alaska to teach some workshops at the Valdez Ice Festival, Conrad was able to squeeze in an early morning chat me at his hotel in Anchorage, before catching a flight back to Bozeman.

Rank #2: Uphill Athlete: Steve House.
I first heard about Steve House in 1995 - when I was living at my family's cabin on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. I was 20 years old, working as a park rangers assistant. Besides work, there wasn’t much to do that summer, but chop wood, go for mind-numbing afternoon runs, and fish murky waters for salmon. Unfortunately for me, the mountains were hours away. But one thing I looked forward to was my monthly subscription to Climbing Magazine. I cherished each magazine like a prized possession, and poured over each story again and again, dreaming of the far off ranges that captured my imagination.•It was during this time that I read about Steve House’s climb of Denali’s Father and Sons Wall - completed in a light and fast alpine style that was coming more and more into vogue in the U.S. Soon after, I started hearing more about Steve’s adventures in Alaska and beyond - and as the years passed, I watched him transform into one of the most accomplished, and visionary alpinists of our time. •Steve’s life and alpine climbing career were documented thoroughly in his excellent book, Beyond The Mountain. But in the last few years, House has become equally known for his work with Uphill Athlete. And that’s how I got to connect with Steve last month, when we sat down to chat for an hour about his new book, Training For The Uphill Athlete, which he co-authored with Scott Johnston and Kilian Jornet.•But before we got into the guts of the book, I wanted to take some time to talk about about Steve’s early years as a budding alpinist in Slovenia - and how those experiences helped shape his career as an alpinist - and eventually his work with Uphill Athlete.••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••MUSIChttps://evanphillipsmusic.com/••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••LINKSwww.uphillathlete.com www.stevehouse.net www.thefirnline.com www.patreon.com/thefirnline••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••SPONSORSwww.alaskarockgym.com/ www.hoardingmarmot.com/••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Rank #1: The Survivor (Ep. 17).
In this special episode of the Sharp End, Ashley speaks with Ryan Montoya, a 23-year-old student who had the strength, skill, and fortitude to survive a terrible mountaineering accident on March 15, 2017. Just below the summit of 14,018-foot Pyramid Peak in Colorado, during a solo winter ascent, Montoya fell more than 1,500 feet down the remote east face, then made his way back toward the road over the next three days, despite serious injuries. We've given extra time to this episode to let Ryan tell his amazing story in full detail.The Sharp End is produced each month by Accidents in North American Climbing, an annual publication of the American Alpine Club, and is presented by Mammut, with additional support from Vertical Medicine Resources and Colorado Outward Bound School.[Note: Because of some technical difficulties, listeners may notice one or two brief gaps in this interview.]

Rank #1: Gothic Couloir: Blinded by Desire (Episode 13).
When you move to Jackson in your 20’s, you can suddenly find yourself thrust into an extreme playground where the stakes are literally life and death. Accomplished ski racers Jim Ryan and Connor Nolan had the skills to tackle some of Jackson’s burliest lines. Their desire to ski those big lines blinded them to the level of risk they were taking until the day they attempted Gothic Couloir and the Triple Crown.

A high altitude mountaineer travels through sub-zero temperatures, scales treacherous terrain, and carries hundreds of pounds of supplies. Many of us have very little in common with this person. We don’t need to worry about the lack of oxygen in the air or the extent of frostbite in our toes.Yet, we are all human. There are certain ideas which apply to all of us, no matter if we are standing at 29,029 feet or sea level. Why is it important to step outside of our comfort zone? How do we weigh risk vs. reward? What impact does human behavior have on our decision making? On MtnMeister, we explore these ideas by talking with those who have found answers in the extremes.Ben Schenck, the host of MtnMeister (pronounced Mountain Meister), asks thought-provoking and sometimes uncomfortable questions that you won't hear in a typical interview. Notable guests include Alex Honnold, Sasha DiGiulian, Ueli Steck, Jeremy Jones, Lynn Hill, Conrad Anker, Aaron Gwin and other adventurers in climbing, skiing, hiking, biking, and everything else in the mountains.
Rank #1: #142 Life is unknown with Conrad Anker.
Conrad Anker is a world renowned mountaineer who has redefined what’s possible in climbing over the past three decades. His accomplishments span from climbing 8000m peaks without oxygen in the Himalaya, to first ascents in Antarctica, to big wall climbing in Patagonia. In 1999, he located George Mallory’s body on Mt Everest. Most recently, Meru, a documentary about the first ascent of the Shark’s Fin on Meru, won the Audience Choice award for documentaries at the Sundance Film Festival.
Rank #2: #168 Alex Honnold on the 100-year anniversary of America's National Parks.
On August 25th America will be celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the National Parks. In good spirit, the American Alpine Club hosted its Annual Benefit Dinner in Washington DC and invited world-renowned rock climber Alex Honnold to be the keynote speaker. In this episode, I sit down with Alex to talk about his experiences in the National Parks and his opinions on protected lands. Sometimes a person who gets interviewed as much as Alex will resort to "canned answers". Not Alex. I really appreciated how he listened to each question and gave thoughtful, candid responses. Following the interview is Alex's keynote. This was recorded at the American Alpine Club's 2016 Annual Benefit Dinner presented by The North Face and REI. Special thanks National Geographic.

Rank #1: S1:E6 Tommy Caldwell.
Tommy Caldwell is perhaps the most well-known and accomplished rock climber on the planet. He is best known for his recent ascent of El Capitan’s Dawn Wall with partner Kevin Jorgensen, a project that several years to complete and garnered major mainstream media attention.Tommy has also climbed the hardest rock routes in the United States, including sport climbs of 5.15 and is also a world-class alpine climber. In the sixth and final episode of season one of Afterglow, Tommy speaks at length about how writing a memoir added value to his life by forcing him to be completely vulnerable. Madigan and Caldwell also chat candidly about his relationship with Dawn Wall partner Kevin Jorgensen, and how it was a marked departure from other partnerships in his climbing career; how his upbringing allows him to view life as a constant opportunity for growth, and that he wants to be remembered for personal qualities rather than athletic feats. The conversation meanders to also cover the formative influence of Tommy's father, how having a family hasn't changed his approach to climbing, and how hardships have helped him grow as an athlete ... and more importantly ... as a person.

Rank #2: S3:E1 Jeremy Jones.
We're excited to welcome you back for another deep dive into the mind, heart and soul of eight amazing and world renown adventure athletes. We kick off season three of Afterglow with Jeremy Jones, an absolute deity of the snowboard world. For those of you who know Jeremy, he needs no introduction. For those listeners who haven't heard of Jones, he has been a snowboarding icon for nearly three decades and is someone who epitomizes everything good and soulful about the sport. During his extended career he has appeared in over 60 films while becoming the godfather of big mountain snowboarding. He has also create his own highly successful snowboard brand and been nominated by National Geographic as an "Adventurer of the Year." IN 2007 Jeremy founded Protect Our Winters, an organization that we view as one of the last great hopes for fixing our climate crisis. Jeremy and his amazing group of climate advocates are dedicated to reversing global warming by uniting the winter sports community. What we find most revealing about Jeremy, however, is that he is one of the most humble, ego-free, down to Earth humans you could ever meet. He's quick to point out the strengths of others, downplay his accomplishments and shine the light on the powerful passion of the everyday rider. The truth is that Jeremy Jones is a special person. We hope you enjoy our chat with the insightful and soulful icon.
