Ian McIntosh’s Season Edit

Freeskier Battles Injury to Hammer a Huge Season

Ian McIntosh is one of today’s most talented Big Mountain Freeskiers. He is fast, big, and technical. In 2011, McIntosh suffered a season ending injury while filming with Teton Gravity Research in Alaska. Due to the extent of the trauma to his femur, the 2012 season was also lost. After persistent physical therapy, McIntosh came back to slay the dragon on mountains with sheer and craggy faces, only to suffer yet another injury. This time suffering a broken ankle, the Freeskier known for his strength and burliness seemed to be breaking down. Yet like the phoenix rises from the ash, McIntosh resurrected his 2013/2014 Ski Season and laid down some of the biggest lines of his life. His technicality and extreme athleticism showcased in these lines is matched in his persistence, determination, and resilience.

Pro Skier Sammy Carlson at Snowboarder Magazine's Superpark

You read it right. Pro skier. At Snowboarder’s Superpark.

The past few year’s Snowboarder Magazine Editor Pat Bridges has extended an olive branch to the once-arch enemy of snowboarders by inviting a select few freeskiers to participate in Snowboarder Magazine’s Superpark. It is a strategic move out of respect for progression of snow sports and park building everywhere. Sammy Carlson has had the honor the past couple year’s of attending and the edit the Poor Boyz crew put together from last weeks Superpark 15 does more than justify Sammy’s presence.

Newschoolers.com put up a great interview with Sammy about his time at Superpark. Give it a read by clicking here.

Be sure to check out the Poor Boyz Productions website to find out more about their upcoming freeskiing movie set to drop this fall.
