Grab a PBR and sit back as I chat with The Jaded Local on this episode of “The Storytellers” podcast. Hear from writer Hans Ludwig on the column’s beginnings, its evolution over time, and how, in its various creative iterations, it continues to cut through the absurdities of skiing and the ski industry: the marketing ploys (“Dump Alerts,” as Ludwig calls them), the sponsorships, the seriousness, the crazy happenings you see in ski towns.

The Jaded Local column bites at the honest—and often hilarious—truths found around the ski hill. Tune in to this episode of “The Storytellers” podcast to hear more about one of POWDER’s most popular columns.
