Perfect for flights, chairlifts or long road trips, podcasts [digitally recorded interviews or stories] are great travel companions. They’re also great during long stints in between skiing, i.e. summer, when you just really want to reconnect with your beloved sport and daydream about the white stuff. Warning: they also might induce intense ski cravings. Proceed with caution, but here is a curated list of the top 6 podcasts for skiers.
Powder Magazine’s Mike Powell hosts Powder Radio and offers subscribers interview-based content from young freeksiers to epic legends and everyone in between, including long-time ski industry vets, filmmakers and more.

Director of SEO + Content
Originally from the icy trails of New Jersey, I moved West to pursue powder and a career in writing and editing. Now living in Aspen, Colo. and working for Ski.com as Director of SEO + Content, I've been able to combine a litany of skills, passions and interests. You'll find me skiing at Aspen Mountain or Aspen Highlands in the winter and mountain biking at Snowmass in the summer.
