If you ever ride Hyland Hills and see kid that rides like Justin Fronius, but isn’t just Justine Fronius, it’s probably Eli Lamm. The next generation of thrashers are tearing the roof down, and Eli is one of them.
Profesional Skier and 2014 Olympian Jossi Wells recently sat down with The House’s PaddyO to discuss the upcoming season, his thoughts on Russia, and the Sea Monkeys that now live in his knees. Wells has been competing since he was a child. He is a mainstay of the podium, a former World Champion, sponsored by the top companies in the industry, featured in magazines, and considered one of the best Freeskiers in the world. Yet, he does not let this go to his head. He is no prima donna. Wells still finds the joy, love, and fun in his passion. The stoke is still there, very much present, very much palpable. Jossi Wells is a normal sarcastic and fun loving New Zealander who likes working on motorcycles, laughing, and skateboarding. He just happens to be extremely good at something he loves to do.

The Brown Family of St. Paul, MN have chosen to take on Vail Resort’s Epic Race. Their home ski hill Afton Alps was recently acquired by Vail Resorts and The Browns jumped at the opportunity to compete for a lifetime pass. They recently sat down atop a mountain with PaddyO Man of Action and the Action News Team to delve into their plans. The excitement is palpable, the plans are tremendous, the race is Epic!
Ski Superstar Jossi Wells stopped by The House to chat with PaddyO about the saddest truth: his extreme and utter lack of a Shampoo Sponsor. Jossi is known for his high flying acrobatics and technical precision in Ski Halfpipe and Slopestyle. More notably, he is known for his coif and beard. His new wave Tony Hawk esque side part comb-over and chiseled grizzled soup strainer crumb catcher are inspiring and eye catching cabeza adornments. Yet they are on the brink of becoming a hindrance. The beauty of their look is undercut by their noxious nature. Quite frankly (and Jossi admits), his head smells like the inside of a kangaroo pouch. How can Jossi concentrate on ripping mountain crumbling slashes when the heat from his french onion soup, burnt Korean BBQ, and low tide smelling beard melts his goggles? He can not. How can he concentrate on throwing whirly birds in the stunt ditch when his hair looks like an Exxon Mobile disaster? He can not. This Kiwi needs a Shampoo Sponsor like Hall needs Oates, like Soul Glo needs the Jerry Curl, like spandex needs the deep single leg squat and forward lunge. Sponsoring this man’s dome piece and face fur is sponsoring his future, allowing him to be the man he is meant to be. Let us band together in an alliance for aroma, a fellowship of fuzz. We’re with you Jossi, you Weirdo Beardo…we’re with you!
