When it comes to true ‘all-mountain’ skiing, Marcus Caston probably has the nicest turn in the game. He’s also got one of our favorite video series, Return of the Turn, which if you call yourself a skier, you need to watch. A new episode just dropped today, so in honor of the occasion, Marcus and I talked about the latest episode; the series itself; coaching; why people think he is from the East Coast; and we go over some Best / Worst ideas for Return of the Turn episodes. (Paging Glen Plake…)
