    Great Interview! Informative, authentic and actually quite funny. As for the deathwish – it is one of my favourate ski names of all time (and I am not certain whether I ever was really drunk at all in my life) and runner up just after the jaguar shark (which also leads the podium for best ski graphic ever – first season graphic with the shark mutant holding the puppy).
