X Games Real Ski 2020 Gold Medalist, Jake Mageau
04.20.2020 - By BLISTER Podcast
The X Games Real Ski competition is an invitation-only event, where some of the top skiers in the world go out and put together a 90-second street edit. The creativity and talent on display in real ski is always bonkers, and we’ve talked with past X Games winners and fan favorites, like Magnus Graner (Blister Podcast #36) and LJ Strenio (Blister Podcast #94). And today, we’re talking with Jake Mageau, who in 2019 was voted the Real Ski fan favorite, and then this year, Jake took home the Real Ski 2020 gold medal. Jake walks us through what really goes into filming a 90-second submission to Real Ski; scouting and settling on locations; the insane “Mind Flip” he puts down in this edit, and more.
