Troy Murphy's skiing skills extend far beyond the moguls course.
"I like doing everything,” Murphy says. “I don’t get into the park [much] now, but even a couple of years ago, I’d still go whenever I could. I think that it builds a good air awareness and if you’re hitting big park jumps, moguls jumps don’t really seem that scary.”
Murphy sat down with GrindTV to talk about his passion for backcountry skiing, his intense summer training and preparing for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
