    Ski to Sea Relay Race 2022 - Bellingham, Washington: Nordic/XC, Downhill Snowboarding and Skiing, Cycling, Cyclocross, Running, Canoeing, Kayaking

    Ski to Sea Relay Race 2022 - Bellingham, Washington: Nordic/XC, Downhill Snowboarding and Skiing, Cycling, Cyclocross, Running, Canoeing, Kayaking

    We are thinking Memorial Day Weekend 2022 is the year to assemble Team On The Lift Podcast. This may sound like skier blasphemy, but… Dibs on NOT skiing. You’ll see why – The race is a 93 mile relay. The mass start is the Nordic leg. The timing chip is then handed-off to the downhill skier or snowboarder. But wait – the “downhillers” start their leg uphilling. That is – climbing 900 vert feet before racing down Mt. Baker. Then 40+ miles of cycling; 8 miles of running, 18 miles of canoeing, cyclocrossing, and kayaking into the finish line. Nearly 3000 participants make the trek to Bellingham, Washington for this nearly 50 year old race. Let’s do it, listeners!

    36. New Zealand, Mt. Hutt, Queenstown, Christchurch, Methven and the Southern Alps Summer Skiing with Richie Owen

    36. New Zealand, Mt. Hutt, Queenstown, Christchurch, Methven and the Southern Alps Summer Skiing with Richie Owen

    Richie Owen shows us the way around Mt. Hutt. Actually, he shows us the way all around the South Island of New Zealand. This is the one destination that, well, wasn’t a destination last year. The nation shut it’s borders and held them tightly during the miserable era we call COVID. And the ski industry persuaded the government to let the mountains prove they could safely do their thing and let the people ski. So Summer 2020 (US summer; NZ Winter; i.e. June, July, August) had the Kiwis on the snow.

    This is the land of adrenaline. From the drive up to the mountain, to bungee jumping, jet boating, canyon swinging, zip lining, and, our beloved skiing and snowboarding, this is the kind of place you may need a vacation from your vacation.

    Shhhh… Richie might have slipped and mentioned a little about New Zealand’s prize opportunity – fly fishing. We hope you enjoy your time around the Canterbury Plain and the descriptions of the drive to Queenstown.

    Now go book your trip.

    34 -Ski and Snowboard Australia's Mt. Hotham & Thredbo with Southern Hemisphere Adventurer Rouchelle Gilmore

    This episode is the first of three timely productions about Southern Hemisphere skiing and snowboarding. Southern Hemi snowsports typically kick off in mid-June and last through mid-September. July and August are the heart of the season, and On The Lift Podcast listeners will never regret taking off on a ski holiday in New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, and, as highlighted in this episode, Australia.

    Fellow Podcaster, Rouchelle Gilmore has planted her Aussie soul in the Victoria mountains. The Southern Hemisphere season is just about to begin, and Rouchelle is On The Lift to share all about skiing in Australia. She’s chases snowfall when things dry up in her home country, splitting time in Jackson Hole, and previously in Japan’s Niseko. This Perth native shares her passion for the mountains on her very own podcast, The Mountain Cosmos.

    32. We're Cheering For Benjamin Alexander in the Next Olympics!

    32. We're Cheering For Benjamin Alexander in the Next Olympics!

    Benjamin Alexander is a mid-30’s racer.  He is working his tail off to qualify to represent Jamaica as a ski racer in the next Olympic games.  He’s admittedly inspired by the legendary bobsledders who preceded him.  But this badass has been skiing only 5 years, only one (yes “1”) of which has he been racing.  You’re going to love hearing about his quest for FIS points and the rigors of coming to the racing party about 30 years late.  This lively interview will take you from England to Revelstoke, from Brazil to Whistler, back to Rev, heliskiing Mica, training in Jackson Hole, on to Big Sky and Park City, and a whole bunch of places on the 2021 map of his future.

    On another note, Benji may have logged 103K vert at Revelstoke, but he’s aiming for 123K at Jackson.

    This former international DJ will entertain you with his rich life history.  Enjoy our conversation with Benji On The Lift.
