On this week’s episode of Tips and Tales, we have a very special guest, the leader of the American Downhillers and genuinely one of the nicest guys you could ever meet, the U.S. Ski Team’s Steven Nyman. Sean Higgins was able to sit down with Steven at his home in Park City in-between his workouts and his dad time with his two-year-old daughter, Nell. Nyman talks about everything from his humble beginnings at the small Sundance Mountain Resort in Utah, his plans for the coming season, to how he approaches his role as the veteran of the team and mentor for the up-and-coming racers climbing the ladder of the U.S. Ski Team. And at 37-years-old, he also talks a little bit about that big “R-word” —retirement. We think you’ll really enjoy the conversation.
