Freeride

Born and raised in the coast mountains near Whistler BC. Grew up spending most of my time in the mtns or at the skatepark and lived and breathed canadian mtn culture since day one. My favourite time of skiing is in the backcountry but i don't like to classify myself as i trully am an all terrain skier from ski mountaineering to backcountry freestyle to freeriding. I live in Pemberton BC now where i ski Whistler Blackcomb and the surrounding backcountry touring zones of the south coast. I first began the pro skier game thing at age 14 and dont plan on stopping my progression for as long as i can forsee.
