In the event that you’ve seen his award-winning segment (or his appearance in Blank Collective Films’ Tales From Cascadia), and are impressed by his skiing, there’s a chance you’ll be even more impressed by him as a person. Richardson is wise beyond his years, and has a tendency to look at the bigger picture by setting goals for himself, being a sponge when it comes to learning, and embracing and practicing gratitude along with having a vision for himself beyond skiing.

In this conversation, the 20-year-old from Canmore, Alberta talks about his first big breaks, a costly snowmobile mission, filming with Blank, travelling for movie premiere tours, and much more.
