Welcome to “Chairlift Chats” You never know who you might catch on a lift ride or what you might talk about.

After a Christmas hiatus here is this week’s chairlift chat is with John Doble, a former high-level hockey player, talking about the switch from hockey to skiing. It all started when his father Bill Doble, co-founder of Dodge Ski Boots, invited him on a trip to Colorado.

It’s fascinating how John’s been able to take his prowess on skates and turn it into joy and passion on skis.

John discusses a number of striking similarities and differences between hockey and skiing and how to boost your confidence on snow.

Of course, a huge part of confidence is the right ski boot and creating a strong platform under your feet.

Happy New Year!!
