For those who don’t remember, Puskas was one of the best-known Rockies skiers in the 2000s and 2010s—loved by photographers for his ability to make a pretty turn in almost any snow conditions and his unflappable air style (not to mention a willingness to huck huge). Puskas had photos in every ski magazine that existed during that time. He also filmed parts for Theory 3 Media and B4Apres back in the DVD days.
