Chris Rubens on Ski Movies, Training for Ski Season, and Being a Sustainable Athlete

Today you’ll get a cool perspective into what it’s like to be in the ski movies, what it takes to get there, and how to train for ski season. Chris is also out to deliver a message - and his projects reflect that.

Watch for his upcoming film, produced by Salomon and with his partner in adventure (and last week's guest) Greg Hill - The Curve of Time - and how they both strive to be environmentally responsible athletes.

Because there is often a life metaphor in these discussions, it was interesting to hear Chris’ viewpoint on a good partnership/team mate. Listen to how they each talk about the other not only with respect but recognizing where their partner excels vs where they do. This is important in the mountains as well as in the office. 

So listen on and let’s gear up. 

Life lessons from Chris 

  • Successful partnerships require open and respectful communication.
