    Great interview. I love how you asked good questions and then stepped aside. I also appreciate the discussion of gear.

      I actually loved this interview. Matt is really an awesome telemark skier. Gotta to love his passion and dedication.
      Can you imagine ascending that many feet a year!

      And he is so right when he talks about how telemark is an option for big routes.
