jason borgstede not snowboarding podcast industry alaska filming pro retail shops future

Back in the old Mack Dawg days while living in Whistler, Jason Borgstede‘s part was always the one to get fast-forwarded. He was an insane snowboarder, but there was something about his style that was a little wacky. (Remember the Borgaerial?) Or maybe it was just the songs that MDP choose for him? Either way he got grouped in with other guys like Jim Rippey and Chris Engelsman. Super talented, but not as steeze as say, the Forum team.

Anyway now that everyone is more mature Jason Borgstede seems like the man. He’s still super into snowboarding and everything surrounding it. So much so that he created a RETAIL SHOP!!! just to support his local scene up in Alaska. The industry could use more men as good as Jason.

He sat down with the Not Snowboarding Podcast crew recently at Agenda. The podcast is a monster coming in at over 3-hours, but if you nerd out on snowboarding and skateboarding as much as Borgstede does it’s worth the listen. They touch on:
