Chris Booth’s career started as a competitive skier from Australia who was ready to take North America by storm.  But doing that is next to impossible while you are focused on your studies and don’t spend a ton of time training.  Eventually, Chris graduated from contests to the backcountry, became a lawyer, and realized that the law life was not for him.  He went on to become one of the most important behind the scenes players in skiing, helping build the Black Crows brand into a global force.  And now, he’s taken off in a new direction that could change the travel aspect of skiing and more over at Awayco.  It’s a great episode that provides a lot of insight into the ski world.
