SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:43 PM ET ) Shaun for sure.


Joseph Price: TJ, what cool stuff do they have in the athlete lounge? do they give you goodie bags, or something?

SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:44 PM ET ) Lots of awesome food free drinks Coffee mugs and we get to play tons of video games


gregory p.: hey man, i live in southern california but i wanted to know your favorite thing about canada. thanks.

SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:44 PM ET ) Canada just kicks ass. period. Especially where i live in the summer time its a desert filled with lakes. And in the winter just crazy ammounts of snow




Katie: Hi TJ. What's your favorite ski film of all time? Or, your top three!

SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:45 PM ET ) Degenerates - 13 & Royalty - those were the ones that got me the most stoked to ski.


Owen Reisster: hey man did you go to the powder awards, what were they like?

SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:47 PM ET ) POwder awards were great ! All the industry people are there along with all the athletes. You get to see all the best shots from all the Movies. T-Hall cleaned up and proved he is the man. Choice


Nanda: What up TJ, who are your best friends in skiing?



SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:47 PM ET ) EVERYONE !!!!!!


Josh: yo TJ, are you still sponsored by Anon? What's some of their coolest stufff this season?

SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:48 PM ET ) Anon took care of me extremly well and fully supported me. I just recently moved to Dragon and they came out with a killer new frame.


SJ G.: Yo TJ whats up man. I have a question about skiing big air. So charles did a pretty sick sw12 octo, but i'm wondering how much harder or easier your sw14 high mute was? Is spinning with an octo harder than spinning with mute?

SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:49 PM ET ) Charles is up right now for slope - killing it.


Spinning that much is hard enough. But doing a double grab would definatly make it that much crazier. Holy he just KILLED his run !!!!!


Alex: I want to watch TJ! Why aren't you in slopestyle?And why no Tanner or Simon?

SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:50 PM ET ) I blew my knee a week ago traning for X. Tanner is focusing on pipe. And Dumont dislocated his shoulder trying to break the QP record last night.


Ohmie: Wzup schiller, how its going with ya ?

SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:51 PM ET ) I want to go skiing !!!!!!
But im stoked watching all my boys kill it right now in Slope !


Sheldon: SOMEBODY MAKE THIS WORK



SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:52 PM ET ) workin on it.....


forest: what do you have to say to all the kids hating on tanner the other night?

SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:53 PM ET ) They are idiots and extremely disrespectful. Tanner is the best skier right now hands down. HE had the most technichal run ever done on skis in the pipe. Then again that was simons best run he has ever done. But on paper when it comes down to judging Tanner rules it.


Carli: Tj, who do you think gonna win today?personally i hope for andreas since i'm a norwegian to. and by thw way hope you'll be abck in the slopes as fast as possible!!!

SportsNation TJ Schiller: (4:54 PM ET ) Im rooting for everyone ! They are all my best buds - It would be sick to see Jossi end up on top;. i love that kid. Andreas is on fire right now too. everyone is killing it and has the chance to win.




Havo: Sup TJ! got a little problem here with the winter in Poland. Can u make it snow even a little bit? That would definitely help us improving our skills mate Cheers
