Sure, freeskier Kaya Turski, a 21-year-old from Montreal, Canada, has endured her share of injuries (including a split pancreas), but none of that matters now: In January, she earned her first X Games gold in women’s slopestyle. This weekend, she’s competing in Homecoming, an all-women park-and-pipe competition founded by pro skier Kristi Leskinen, at Pennsylvania’s Seven Springs ski area. We chatted with Kaya at her home in Mammoth, California.
Simon Dumont is a seven-time X-Games medalist known for his gravity defying amplitude in the halfpipe. Between last weekend’s Visa U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain and this weekend’s Dew Tour at Breckenridge we caught up with Simon to talk about injuries, the Olympics, and his clothing company Empire Attire.
