Feb 22, 2017, 10:44 PM

This week on the "Sponsored" podcast, freeskiing legend Skogen Sprang stops by to talk with host by Mike Powell about his career as a competition and film skier, his style and versatility.

"I did look at it as you should be able to ski every aspect of freeskiing," says Sprang. "You should be good at all these things. And I just enjoyed it, too. For me, always the big mountain and powder and backcountry stuff has been the pinnacle goal of being in the mountains, enjoying it, creating cool looking shots, or images, really just being out there and enjoying the mountains and the soul aspect of that, but then I equally love being out in urban areas and getting creative with some setup and getting technical and playing around in the streets, sliding metal. That's equally as fun just in a totally different way."
