An interview with Patrick Schökel – the founder and lead contributor to the interactive splitboarding journal splitboarding.eu. We had a chance to catch up with Patrick at ISPO 2017 in Munich, Germany. We discussed how splitboarding.eu got started, the German splitboard scene, a little bit of gear at the show, and Patrick’s future splitboard plans. 
Richard Bothwell, the Executive Director of AIARE (The American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education), spoke with us at SIA 2017. We discuss how Richard came to work with AIARE, what AIARE is, and where he sees the organization going in the future.
Becca and Will Ritter, the co-owners of Spark R&D, were nice enough to take some time to chat with us for the podcast. We talked about how Spark R&D began, some highs and lows over the last 10 years, and their hopes for the future.
We had a chance to chat with Spark R&D Ambassador Frankie Devlin. We discuss the Silverton Splitfest, his latest trip to Denali and more, all from from the backyard of Spark R&D owner and founder, Will Ritter.
