Jake Blauvelt is a pro snowboarder who has lived a double life. He started his career focused on competitions and found himself on a lot of podiums. Most athletes, with that kind of success would hone their craft and continue to dominate, not Jake. At around 20, his career shifted fully to the backcountry and he carved out a niche as the young dude who was focused on natural features. On the podcast we talk about Jake’s life and times and it ends with some great inappropriate questions from legend, Peter Line.
