    How has your past season been with your injury and not being able to ski?

    Given the ups of landing and filming some of the most progressive tricks in the sport, and downs of a plethora of life threatening injuries for the Stept crew, how would you rate what you guys do as a viable career alternative on a scale from 1 to 10? Why?

    Every time before I go skiing I watch your TGR/PBP/STEPT or your segment in The Grand Bizarre. What is your favorite edit, or edit that makes you the most stoked to go skiing?

    When did you first pick up a camera? Do you see yourself filming for other companies behind the lens after your career as a skier comes to an end?

    Given your injury, or rather injuries, do you see yourself coming back to the professional level you were at? or are you going to be moving further toward the filming side of things?

    Loaded questions
    Has your progression on the film side of things made you want to film anything bigger than a ski film? (not including freelance videos for other people) If you were given the oppurtunity to leave the ski industry and film for a major Hollywood film project would you? Lastly when you and your brother came out to Colorado did you immediately attend U @ Boulder or did you go to community college for the 1st two years and gain residency?

    Lat year you guys really brought a new entity to the filming/editing side of things with your uptight long lens shots, continuous intro shot and the post audio work. What is this film going to bring to the table?
    AND WHEN IS THE GAHT DAMN TRAILER GONNA COME OUT??!!?!!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!??!?

    From a filmmaking perspective, what does a typical "off-season" entail as far prepping for a film?

    I'm curious on what a "typical" budget is for a film these days using the latest digital technology and pro athletes.

    What would you say is more important: Hitting the gym or working on your snap game?
