Well, as a kid, TMC was the place to go to get the latest ski movies, check out awesome signed posters, skis and other gear left behind by the top pros like Tanner Hall, JP Auclair, TJ Shiller and many more. When I join the freestyle club, Yosuke was one of my coaches and always had open arms to his shop where we could get our skis mounted, hang out and shoot the shit about skiing. It was the closest we could get to the ski industry and it gave us that little bit more motivation to dream about becoming a pro skier and in term making our dreams come true.

Fresh snow! Perfectly groomed Black Park on Blackcomb, or a random phone call from a ski buddy calling to see if I wanted to go shred!
