Skier Legend Seth Morrison joined Teton Gravity Research for a one-on-many chat about life as a pro skier. For over 3.5 hours and 141 posts, Seth took any and all questions regarding cliff drops that exceed 80′, how to prepare & stay in shape for the winter season, and the risk vs. the rewards in today’s top tier skiing.
Here’s a few excerpts from TGR’s “Seth Morrison’s 25 Best Responses In Our ‘Ask Me Anything’ Session”
Q: Do you ever watch another skier and ponder that they may be a better skier? What is your go to phrase when skiing… like “Get money!” or “Time to riiip it uuuuuup!!”
S: Go to Chamonix, everyone is better! My phrase at resorts is “Get out of the way.”
Q: So what is my best regimen for still skiing hard as I get older? I know you mountain bike and hike a lot. Any other specific tips? – whyturn
S: The whole idea is to stay in shape so you’re ready for the task at hand. I have had to do way more riding on the bike and hiking to simulate a day in the mountains, for the climbing of runs and skinning in to get there.

“These boots allow me to ski the way I do with the lightness and full flex no other boot in the market has. Believe me, I have tried many others and they just don’t work for my foot or skiing style. At the end of the day I wish I never tried anything else, it was just a waste of time. Couldn’t be happier that these boots are back and everything on them is exactly the same as they ever were. The ease of set up and fit with the moldable liners saves time at the boot fitters. If Full Tilt ever stops making them, I’ll have to buy the molds and make my own boots!” – Seth
