Episode 7 – Phil and Amy Taisey

Phil and Amy Taisey of Amalgam Ski’s are a rad husband and wife team and makers of some of the best skis made specifically for east coast skiing. They are ride or die Sugarloafers (and no, Sugarloaf did not sponsor this episode – but they should have 😉 ) and these two just truly know how to enjoy a Maine winter.

Episode 6 – Mike St. Pierre

Mike St. Pierre is the founder and CEO of Hyperlite Mountain Gear. Mike is not a native Mainer but probably knows the Maine wilderness better than most. He is his own product tester and has somehow figured out how to balance running a successful business and while still spending quite a bit of time running around the mountains of Maine. Here is a link to his backcountry margarita recipe which feels v important to share:
