Putnam is the latest addition to the team but he's a great match. He's definitely on that now you see me-now you don't shit. We were blown away watching him ski Stowe last winter, and we're still not quite sure if the ski world is ready for the talent he's bringing. Our favorite part about Sam's skiing is that he doesn't pay attention to the way things should be hit, instead he drops into features from the most impossible angles and does tricks that haven't previously existed. The formulas behind his style are impenetrable, and many have failed while trying to imitate. Keep your eyes peeled the next time you're in a park on the east, and in the midst of played switchup variations and frenzied pencil spins you'll see one man dropping tricks you can't understand from feature to feature.
