Rory Bushfield, Pro Skier


Rory Bushfield is known for living dangerously. Yeah, he’s a pro skier, but the risk factor seems to come from everything else in life that he does. Rory started out as the kid who was always getting hurt, but he was also the kid who, cast or not, would crush you in the moguls. He was the JR Olympic Mogul Champion and he quit his Olympic path or the park, pipe, and video parts. In part 1 of this hilarious podcast, we talk about his stunts, money, LCP, death, pressure, and a lot more.
