Introducing The Long Underwear Podcast

Long Underwear aims to strip off the layers and get to know the skiers and snowboarders underneath the ski gear. Hosted by professional skier Amie Engerbretson, there’s only one rule: after introductions, there are no more mentions of skiing and snowboarding allowed.

On this podcast, we aren’t after the stories of the biggest lines skied or favorite pieces of gear. Not this time. In this podcast, we want the embarrassing stories, the ones about the missteps and the mishaps. We want to know about the search for balance and constant quest to find adventures in the day-to-day. We’re looking to take an honest close up of all the goofy and beautifully unique angles of our mountain heroes.
