Blake Paul came to High Cascade Snowboard Camp with his “Lick the Cat” crew this summer and Blake was the first casualty.  A dislocated collarbone forced Blake off the hill and onto the podcast.  We talk about the injury, growing up in Jackson Hole, Aaron Robinson, and getting to be a sponsored snowboarder.
