    Next up in the Ask a Pro series: Mr. Sammy Carlson. Have a question about the 2013 Sammy Carlson Invitational? Perhaps you'd like to ask him about winning gold in the inaugural X Games Real Ski Backcountry contest? The sky is the limit.

    Here's how it works:

    Those of you who wish to ask a question, login to freeskier.com/forums and post your Q below. We'll collect questions through the end of next week (11:59 p.m. 6/2/13). After we've rounded up a solid batch of your various inquiries, Sammy will respond to his favorite questions. His answers will be unveiled in the form of an article on freeskier.com.

    Obviously to have the level of success you have obtained, you need to dedicate your entire life to skiing. Do you have any off the hill goals you would like to achieve post skiing?

    I consider you to be one of, if not the most well rounded Freeskiers in the business. What do you find more challenging and/or fun, throwing stylee technical tricks in the park, or skiing a treacherous powder run in the back country? Which would you choose if you could only do one. Park or Pow-Pow?

    Supposed the awful nightmare of a career ending injury were to happen. How would you cope with the ability to not ski regularly? Monoski? School? Beer?

    If you never started skiing what do you think you would be doing right now?
    Also how do you think it would have affect the skiing community if you had never started to ski?

    What did you do for training when you weren't skiing? I've been using a decent trampoline and learned cork 7 rodeo 7 and misty 7 recently.
