Legends: Darren Johnson

Leading off an exclusive video series produced by Greg Stump, quiet legend Darren Johnson, who is profiled in the October 2013 issue

In the first installment of POWDER’s Legends series, produced by Greg Stump, we take a deeper look into the skiing life of Mr. Darren Johnson: “Glen Plake calls him a master of the sport. Beyond a certain point, technique and style are judgment calls, but a resume that includes competing in F.I.S. racing events and then moguls as an amateur and pro, in the first extreme skiing contest at Blackcomb, the first World Extreme Skiing Championships in Valdez, and the first Winter X Games skiercross, starring in ski movies, coaching a Level II ski-instructing certification, and dropping some of the proudest pioneering descents on the big peaks of the Sierra, on the other hand, is something entirely different.” –Hans Ludwig, from “The Unsung Master,” POWDER October 2013

Darren Johnson is featured in Greg Stump’s new film, Legend of Aahhh’s. Read Hans Ludwig’s review here and order the DVD here.
