The SnowBrains Podcast #30 – Tom Day.

Brought to you by Grand Targhee Resort

“[I made my dreams a reality] by following my heart. I can’t think of another reason why it happened… Especially with skiing, I knew from a very young age I was going to be skiing was going to be my life. And I was able to keep that I didn’t deviate from that and the rest falls in place if you’ve got a good anchor.”

– Tom Day

My guest today is Tom Day:

  • Tom has been a filmer, director, and skier for Warren Miller ski movies every year since 1984 – that’s 38 years of Warren Miller + Tom Day
  • Tom has been the principal filmer and director since the year 2000
  • Tom Day won an Emmy in 2021 for his work on Life Below Zero
  • Tom has worked on big Hollywood movies such as Molly’s Game and Triple X
  • Tom was a skier in the legendary, game-changing ski movie Blizzard of Ahhhs from 1988
  • Tom is still such a badass freeskier that he skied the Chimney at Squaw Palisades Tahoe only two years ago at the age of 58 – Very few people have the guts to ski this line in their prime…
  • Tom is one of the best and smoothest skiers I’ve ever witnessed
  • Tom grew up skiing Bolton Valley in Vermont and has spent his adult life in Squaw Valley Palisades Tahoe, where he still resides
  • Tom’s stories from behind the scenes in the ski movie world are priceless
