EP54: Ski Talk with Elizabeth Montavon (Part 1)


Episode 54 of TWSP is the first part of Matteo's interview with Elizabeth Montavon.

Tune in as Elizabeth narrates her early days of skiing and her focus on trick skiing, which carried through her collegiate days. Speaking of college, Elizabeth shares her struggles through that experience with Matteo, including some mental health issues she had to face and how a commitment to slalom skiing helped her through that. Such commitment involved a process of "catching up" work and a full trust in her coach, the famous Chet Raley. The episode finishes with some of the more recent Pro tournaments Elizabeth skied in this year.

Enjoy this one and stick around for Part 2!
