This week’s conversation on The Out of Bounds Pod is with Sander Hadley. And it’s just that, a conversation, not an interview. The pro skier from Pocatello, Idaho joins the show to talk with Adam about a wide variety of topics on and off the slopes. Having grown up wanting to be a park skier, he’s since shifted to free riding and bigger mountains, and even stepping into the backcountry. He’s been filming for over a decade, including segments with MSP, but mostly he’s focusing on doing his own things these days. Sander discusses his partnership with Dynastar and their role as a redheaded stepchild to Rossignol. But they’re still making hard-charging gear under the radar. They know who they are, know what they do well, and don’t feel the need to change things for the sake of change. He and Adam discuss how they are as a company from the athlete’s perspective. They talk about non-disclosure agreements, socials short content for even shorter attention spans, and take a look at different brands’ approaches to marketing. The episode also asks important questions like: Are the Olympics still important? What does authenticity even mean in skiing? Is ski-mo next for Sander? And what he thinks his voice is, as he shifts into sharing his perspective more on the media side of skiing. This interview flows as well as Sander skis and the dude rips.
