The latest episode of Warner Nickerson’s vlog series, “Kickin’ It With a Badass” follows 18-year-old Kiwi superstar, Alice Robinson, during a day of training in the Dolomites. Shot just before her second World Cup win in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, Robinson had been working on her giant slalom turns, hoping for another strong performance to follow-up her Soelden win at the beginning of the season.

In this series, Nickerson breaks down why he thinks Robinson has the most powerful turn in ski racing (as if being able to squat 330 pounds isn’t enough), and shoots her and her coaches a series of rapid-fire questions that demonstrate why she is not only a badass skier but also a badass person.
