“UK powerhouse Paddy Graham takes us through his top tips for kicker building in the backcountry. Coming straight from the wisdom of the collective Legs of Steel crew who ain’t new to the ski jump building scene. Take care, be safe and have fun when building in the backcountry by following these pro-tips. From jumping skills to searching for powder, we have more where this came from over the coming Winter season. Stay tuned! Paddy ‘Reggie’ Graham first skied after persuading his parents to send him to the USA on a school skiing trip. There he discovered a real love and aptitude for the sport. By age 14 Paddy had had lessons, picked up sponsorship and was spending most of his spare time at the ski village in his home city of Sheffield, in England. By 16, he was able to leave school to concentrate on his skiing career. Paddy is now the UK’s number one freeskier, and his achievements include winning titles at the Battle of Britain London Freeze (2009, 2010 and 2012), Red Bull Playstreets and Red Bull Tribal Quest. In order to ski every available minute he can, Paddy is now based in Innsbruck, Austria. His off-mountain interests include rock ’n’ roll music, sushi, New York City and – his secret love – gardening. Since 2009 he has been one of the masterminds behind the Legs of Steel crew; the freeski film-makers who brought us 2015’s multi-award-winning Passenger.” — Red Bull Snow
