In this podcast, I talk to Jamie Grant founder & CEO of Carv Digital Ski Coach. Being a passionate skier with degrees in Physics and Economics he had the skill set to analyse complicated data. This helped Jamie to start developing a digital ski coach that uses sensors to measure your skiing and give you real-time feedback. The product he wished he had to develop his own skiing back in the day. We talk about what he learned from analysing millions of turns from some of the best in the world and how it compares to the average skier. Enjoy!
