When it comes to Ian McIntosh, there's no flair, tricks, or showmanship... what you see is what you get.  He started skiing at age two, was digging pits in the back country at age 8 and sitting in guide meetings at 10.  Ian was born into the mountain lifestyle and this self-described “redneck” is a powerful  skier who is the epitome of what Tight Loose is all about.
