Ian McIntosh

If you saw his segment in TGR's RE-Session you don't have to read beyond this point. If you didn't, this is what you need to know: Few, if any, big-mountain skiers go as big, as scary, and as fast. A veteran of the contest circuit (he took first on the 2004 North American Tour and second for the world), McIntosh quickly parlayed his skills into ski film segments with TGR, Warren Miller, and Tanner Hall. All this despite the fact that the guy doesn't ski backwards, talk like he's in a Wu-Tang filler skit, or intimidate children just for the hell of it. The take-away? The guy is as good as ski ambassadors get and a good move for Volkl.
