Julian Carr has a serious hucking habit. He's known for blasting off big cliffs and going inverted off many of them. He also started a headwear company called Discrete, and loves writing. He's one of skiing's rennisance men. We caught up with him for this week's TUNESday to ask a few questions and find out what kind of music inspires someone who inspires others.

Skiing: What kind of music do you normally listen to while skiing?

Julian Carr: I love jazzy hip-hop instrumentals the most. Flowing but energetic.

SK: Hands down favorite place to ski? Because?

JC: Utah. Best snow in the world. AK, Andes, Alps and BC are a close 2nd...

SK: Would you rather spend a day skiing ice with your friends, or shredding pow by yourself? Why?

JC: POW. It's an experience you couldn't possibly even comprehend if it didn't exist. Ice on the other hand, you can comprehend - no fun. You can always have fun with your friends wherever you are.

SK: Who would win in a fight, Davy Crockett or Captain Jack Sparrow? Why?

JC: Crockett. No question. Dude fought bears. Jack Sparrow had to hang out on a pirate boat with 100 other dudes all the time, no thanks.

SK: You never get to go inverted again. Do you: 1.Up your daffy game? 2.Attempt to beat Jon Olson in ski racing? 3.Find out if inverts in video games still count?

JC: Daffy twister spread all day long...

Skiing Will Never Be The Same: The Life and Death of Shane McConkey

On the surface, there was the nose picking on camera, the scatological humor, the pranks, and the endless self-mockery. But Shane McConkey was no lightweight. He revolutionized skiing three times—challenging what we ski, how we ski, and even how we think about skiing. So when cinematographers, ski manufacturers, and skiers wanted to predict the future, they looked to him. After a tragic accident this past spring, skiers came to one conclusion: Skiing Will Never Be The Same.
