"Interview" With @LegoSkierBro

We tried to get ahold of @LegoSkierBro on Instagram, but he didn't get back to us, so... we faked it.

If you haven’t been following Lego Skier Bro on Instagram, you’re missing out. His profile says it all: “I’m pretty much the best skier I know.” Though we had some difficulty actually reading his captions, our editor in chief recently caught up with The Bro via Snapchat and Periscope between his #helidrops and #gnarly #spinelines.


SKG: Where did you grow up skiing?

LSB: Bro, #skiingisliving, you know? I’m #alwayslocal wherever I go, bro. Like I’m a #Coloradobro (#nativebro!), but I #skiedtheEast, #shredded #Tahoe, #schralped #TheBigOne, #sentit at #BigSky, you know…the works.

SKG: Do you actually say “hashtag” when you talk?

LSB: I just use the symbol, bro. You know, like with my hands. Like #Prince. Before he was #Prince again. #RIP.

SKG: Hmm. Do you have a job?

LSB: Bro, #skiingislife. Life is circular, you know? Like the #coldsmoke gives way to #hotpow and #corncycles, and then it just comes back around to #overtheheadblower, you know, bro? I don’t really believe in linear thinking, bro.

SKG: Yeah, ok, but do you actually, you know, do anything to earn money?

LSB: Bro, my sponsors take good care of me, you know? And I believe in giving back. So I put everything I have into #spreadingthestoke. #skiingisbelieving, bro.

SKG: So…technically speaking, I’m not a bro. What do you call skier girls?

LSB: Bro, the only skier girl in my life is #legoskierbabe. She totally gets me, you know, bro? She doesn’t need any of these constructs or labels we create in our society to add meaning. She knows that #skiingislife.

SKG: But yet you refer to her as a hashtag?

LSB: Yeah, bro! She totally #rips.

SKG: Tell me about a recent powder day.

LSB: Bro, I punted epic on this tasty nugg in a coulie up in Revy’s b.c., then donut holed and stacked it up. Needed some #idahochrome to stitch my shit up, bro. All my bros were like, “Brooooo!” And I was like, “Brooooo!” It was sick.

SKG: Uh, what?

LSB: Totally!

SKG: Do you find that you’re still fighting the image of being, you know, a toy?

LSB: Totes, bro. You #nailedit. I march to the beat to my own skin track, you know, bro? I’m forging new ground, skiing the road less traveled, or whatever. I am who I am, and I don’t subscribe to any of that corporate bullshit, bro. Oh, and props to #legobrand for making it happen, yo! You guys are #mybros!

SKG: Any other, um, words of wisdom that you’ve learned through all your experiences?

LSB: #skiingislife, bro! #sendingit!

An Interview With Lindsey Vonn

Ski racer Lindsey Vonn was just named Female Athlete of the Decade by NBC's Universal Sports. After months of waiting for an interview, we finally managed to get Vonn to answer some of our questions. But instead of asking her about the Vancouver Olympics coming up in February, we spoke to the two-time World Champion about what it's like being hounded by the press.


The Man Behind the Line

A while ago, we posted a video of this guy skiing a jaw-dropping line in Glacier National Park and it blew peoples minds. So we decided to find out a little more about him. By Leslie Hittmeier
