Big Stick Energy – E2 – Marcus Baranow – Out of Bounds Podcast (

This week we sat down with local legend Marcus Baranow—AKA Confessions of a Ski Bum—to chat about  his new backcountry guidebook for the Bow Valley region and all the challenges with localism, gatekeeping and zone ownership that accompany publishing a book about all the local hot spots. We also chat about sexism in the backcountry and how women and men approach learning, risk and safety differently in those environments.

Marcus is a certified weirdo and huge advocate for making the backcountry a safe, inclusive and collaborative space. Check out the links below to pre-order his guidebook and see what else he’s up to!
