Marcus Caston is coming to visit us at Week 2 to film a segment for his series “Return of the Turn”!
“Return of the Turn” is Marcus Caston’s way of showing the world that “actual skiing” is certainly not dead. In a world of crazy tricks and jaw-dropping descents, Marcus wants to bring us all back to the roots of what makes skiing great. “Return of the Turn” is a video series that follows Marcus and his crew all over the world showing everyone what good ol’ classic skiing looks like. These episodes are different from every other ski movie out there. They ski on any type of snow, any type of terrain, any type of mountain (or hill!) and love every minute of it.
Marcus grew up in Snowbird where he got into ski racing. He went to school in Salt Lake City and skied for fun. Then he got a call from Ted Ligety. There was an open spot in a Warren Miller movie. He jumped at the chance. Since then he has been on the cover of and had spreads in numerous print magazines and has been a featured athlete in four Warren Miller films. According to his website, he is a “professional skier and content creator promoting an appreciation for the art of skiing through creative expression and athletic performance.” We like it!
Marcus will be in town January 15 – 20th racing with us as much as possible and shooting some footage for his “Return of the Turn” series at both Buck Hill and Wild Mountain. We are super excited to have Marcus here with us again and we are so happy to be a part of his efforts to share the sport we all love so much. Welcome, Marcus!
