Sam Tierney was in a dark place. At 13 years old, his climate anxiety was so bad he was having trouble sleeping at night. In an attempt to ease his stress, Sam writes pro skier and climate advocate, Mike Douglas, asking for advice. Seeing some of his own young self in Sam, Mike suggests a weekly ski meet-up to talk about climate, skiing and life.
Known as the ‘Godfather Of Freeskiing’, Mike Douglas is consistently listed by media outlets as one of the most influential skiers of all time. In 2004, Mike founded Switchback Entertainment – a video production company specializing in outdoor adventure films and commercials. He launched the groundbreaking web series, Salomon TV, in 2007 and has produced/directed more than a dozen award-winning films including The Freedom Chair, Tempting Fear, Eclipse, Snowman, Guilt Trip and Fountain Of Youth.
Today, he splits his time between dad-life, skiing professionally, filmmaking, and environmental advocacy work. He is currently the Board Chair for Protect Our Winters Canada – an environmental group focused on fighting climate change.
