So good I’ve reviewed it twice!

Have been addicted to this for the past 12 months. I reviewed the podcast when I started listening and having been through all episodes can safely say it gets better each time. Great interviews, knowledge and chat. Look forward to each episode as it keeps my snow fix going when I’m not on the slopes. Keep up the good work.

The best ski podcast this side of the Atlantic

Jim and Ian’s meandering conversations are a compelling and droll listen for any ski enthusiast that frequents the Alps. They provide great insight through a blend of chat and interview covering a broad range of Alpine topics centred around skiing.
Hear about contemporary ski news, reviews of resorts, kit and the odd ski related book. Best of all catch up on Jim “the average skier’s” exploits on snow as he strives for the above average 😉 and Ian’s trips to pursue the white stuff as often as possible, any way possible. Even keep up with Team GBs results on the World Cup circuit.
This is not for the hip or the uber-cool. If Jim and Ian ever did that, it was more than 10 years ago and they would probably not be called Jim and Ian, for that matter. However, for the more discerning listener, who appreciates the mountains for their wonder and skiing for the test, minus the dancing on tables to euro-trash, this is the only ski podcast to you.
Episodes will even run through the summer when Jim will take on the 5, or is that 8 glacier ski areas (what do I know).
Keep up the good work guys. You make the commute something to look forward to when the latest episode lands 👍

Very informative & entertaining

I’ve been listening to The Knowledge is Powder/The Ski Podcasts since the PyeongChang Olympics and although the first few were a bit ropey due to sound and flow (somewhat stunted conversations between Jim and Ian), I now find them very entertaining, informative and have a natural flow. Great range of topics covering resorts, industry news, equipment etc. I look forward to future episodes. Jan in Méribel
