Wendy Fisher is one of the all-time greats. She is a two-time World Extreme Skiing Champion; was on the U.S. Ski Team; filmed with Warren Miller and MSP; and played a huge role in showing the world what women could do in big-mountain arenas. We spoke to Wendy about all of this and more (including a few fantastic Shane McConkey and Seth Morrison stories) last week in our latest installment of our Blister Speaker Series at Western Colorado University in Gunnison, CO. And if you want to watch the whole conversation, head to our YouTube Channel.
