TJ Schiller, Pro Skier


TJ Schiller was a huge name in the world of ski slopestyle in the 2000s. He was a dominant force who brought many firsts to the table at a time when learning tricks was riskier, but the reward seemed to be a lot more. TJ’s career is basically 2 parts, healthy TJ and then injured TJ and we talk about what happened in between on the podcast…the come up, the overnight fame, the travel, the money, the pain, x-games gold, and a whole lot more. Another DO NOT MISS episode.
