  1. Awesome!! Really enjoyed this conversation. That nomadic spirit that draws so many of us to boards (snow & water), bikes, and boats. Trying to be comfortable with the uncomfortable.
    I listen and read all things Blister but this podcast was truly enlightening. Thanks Jonathan!!!

  2. I don’t know her, but i get the honor and fun to know little bit of her about all video and adventures.
    I love her smile, simplicity and always her humor…..
    I wish her all the happines, love and respect.
    I know after this decission she will go back to skiing nothing but for the love to the mountains, snow and the outdoors……and, I won’t be surprised that she will love it even deeper and further without that sponsors pressure.
    From Maui, Hawaii sending you much love and ahuge thanks for what you have done in skiing to keep us dreaming……
