This week on the Blister Podcast, we’re running the second part of our conversation with Jed Yeiser, the head ski designer for Line Skis and a senior designer for K2 Skis.
If you haven’t listened to part 1 yet, you can do so—and subscribe (!) to The Blister Podcast—here.
• Among other things, we discuss Jed’s work with Eric Pollard…
and Line Skis founder Jason Levinthal—including Jay’s thoughts on this new Line ski, the Tourist (you can check out our First Look on the Tourist to see rocker pics, weights, and flex pattern info):
We get into the controversy over manufacturing skis in China; the present and future of “e” bikes; books, movies (including our favorite Wes Anderson movies and Anderson’s influence in the ski world), and more.
