    How about an interview with Lynne Wieland or Kim Reichhelm?

    Scot Schmidt, Glen Plake, Doug Coombs those guys defined the term we know as extreme skiing! Nothing like the originals but I would like to see them do the things possible today with the new ski technology, what a thrill that would be to watch in a movie!
