The legend of Hotdog Hans is back!

In the 1970s, one man reigned supreme and his name is Hotdog Hans. He was the king of the mountain who had it all, and then lost it all.

People have been going down the mountain the same way since the sport began. Then, one day, Hotdog Hans came along and moved the whole sport forward by going down the mountain backward. Free-skiing was born, and the rest is history. But these punks forgot who started it all. Hans is here to remind them!

Hotdogging was the old-school term for freestyle skiing before pipe and park. And Hotdog Hans took hotdogging to the next level. This is a story of how fame and ego can drag the best down. It may or may not be real.
