Face Time with Annie Boulanger


Much ado around premiere season here at the ESPN, but what do you expect, actual snowboarding on the snowboarding section? No way! It's all about the hype from now 'til La Niņa unloads.

The Absinthe crew landed in Seattle for the premiere of "NowHere" last week, with a number of heavies in tow. Bode, Brisse and Blauvelt had the big-screen bangers this go around, but Miss Boulanger, never one to balk, brought the heat for the third year in a row.

We caught up with Annie Boulanger at the beginning of her eight-stop tour to find out how she got in with Hostynek and Co., where she got her shots, the other French Canadian she-ripper and more.
