Michael Wick is one of the closest individuals that snowboarding has to an actual rockstar. Both on hill and off, Wick always seems to be charging to a personal soundtrack of nonstop hits that take him effortlessly from the jumpline to the queue at the club. His full-on stoke is contagious, so because Michael is a master of getting the party started, we felt he would be a perfect candidate to share his go-to playlist in this edition of White Noise. Want to throw down on hill like this Lick the Cat icon? Dream of the all-night apres staying power that Mr. Wick possesses? Well, we can’t promise you either of those things, but you can listen to the same songs as you aspire to greatness.
