Hive Life Podcast

By Chris / On / In Chris' Blog, Gear, Podcasts

A while back I had the chance to share a bit of my story with the crew at Honey Stinger for their Hive Podcast. While it was really cool to be invited to be on their show, I have to say the other episodes are far more impressive, with really cool stories about fitness, nutrition, and life from world class athletes. Highly recommended if you’re looking for a new podcast series!

From Honey Stinger:

Episode 20 features our first conversation with a winter athlete. Snowboarder and master snowboard instructor Chris Rogers. Rogers travels the world working as an instructor and trainer for multiple organizations as a member of the Snowboard National Team of the PSIA/AASI (Professional Ski Instructors of America & American Association of Snowboard Instructors).  These are the world’s largest organization dedicated to teaching people to ski and snowboard.

In addition, Rogers also works as an Examiner in the organization’s Rocky Mountain chapter, which means he certifies other snowboard instructors. With decades of riding, competing and coaching behind Chris, he knows as much about the sport as anyone. He talks about the unique joys and quirks of snowboarding. He even talks about how a single Honey Stinger waffle has saved the day for him on many occasions.

Best of all, Rogers and Willey go deep into the importance and the value of teaching and learning. Chris accidentally built a career out of his passion and you can too.

All I Really Need to Know I Learned from Snowboarding

By Chris / On / In Chris' Blog, Podcasts, PSIA-AASI

For the last several months my good friend (and AASI Teammate), Nick Alfieri, and I, have been working on a new project. It’s a podcast about life, the universe, and everything, but centered around our lives and careers in the snowsports industry.

With this show, Nick and I will both tell our stories about snowboarding, competition, careers, passion, and struggles. Many of these stories and themes will be areas of the snowsports instruction career that we’ve wanted to tell, but haven’t previously had the right venue.

This is a weekly show. There are 6 episodes out now, with new episodes released every week on Wednesdays at 6pm mountain time. You can find us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and most other sites that list podcasts.

You can also find everything about our show on our host, Anchor.fm: https://anchor.fm/all-i-really-need-to-know-i-learned-from-snowboarding
