In episode 1 of Rockstar's new web series "Retrospect" with Sammy Carlson, the twenty seven year old reflects on what drove him in his early days of skiing. For Sammy the passion came from a pure love of the sport, sprouting from watching old ski films on VHS.
We can all, in some way relate to this experience. As young skiers we were wowed by the exploits and accomplishments of our heroes. Sammy, however, took it in another direction, filming his first ski part by the age of twelve and eventually riding with Poor Boyz. Throughout all these experiences his motivation does not change much from the little kid watching old films, at the end of the day it is all about skiing.
