Behind the scenes: Christensen and Kotsenburg’s road to the red carpet

Comments by Thacher Stone/

Joss Christensen and Sage Kotsenburg have had a hell of a ride since they captured gold medals in their respective disciplines at the Sochi Winter Olympics. Most recently, the Utah natives and childhood buds were each nominated for ESPY awards as “Best Male Olympian” for their stellar performances at the 2014 Games. Before attending the awards, hosted by ESPN in Los Angeles, the duo made stops at Woodward Tahoe and Woodward at Copper to stoke out some campers and have some fun. Check out latest edit of the champs on their path to the red carpet, put together by Woodward TV and FREESKIER alum Mike Thomas.
