Travis Ganong Fireside Chat
Travis Ganong answers a question at the Xfinity Birds of Prey World Cup press conference in Beaver Creek, Colo. (U.S. Ski & Snowboard)

Ever wonder if athletes on the FIS Ski World Cup circuit hang out or stay connected in the offseason? Wonder no more. Olympian Travis Ganong recently lifted the curtain for a Fireside Chat: North American Edition, hosting an Instagram Live that featured he and his Alpine Canada girlfriend Marie "Mitch" Michele-Gagnon (yes, their last names really ARE that close) and competitor/teammate Manny Osborne-Paradis spoke about everything from returning from injury to Manny's famous helmet collection, and beyond. 

For nearly an hour, Travis, Mitch, and Manny allowed fans to see what life is like for them on the World Cup tour in this inaugural cross-national Fireside Chat installation, sharing stories from their careers and giving everyone a sneak-peak into life on the White Circus—which is essentially one big international family.

So sit back, relax, grab a Pacifico...and enjoy!
