Sean Pettit


It all started it off on July 27th 1992, when Sean was born in Ottawa, Ontario. Two years later he had his first day of skiing at Camp Fortune where he quickly became one of the best skiers of the mountain. In 1999, Deb Hillary, a.k.a Mom, decided to move Sean, and big brother Callum, out west, to Whistler, BC, where they could ride some of the best backcountry terrain in the world. It wasn’t too long after that, that Sean started getting recognized for his talent. At the ripe age of 11, he landed his first major sponsors, K2 and Oakley, when he didn’t even understand that skiing could be his job. Shortly after, Sean signed with Red Bull, becoming their youngest athlete ever.

Today, he is one the most renowned big-mountain skiers in the sport who starred in countless films, won multiple awards, appeared on numerous magazine covers, won the Red Bull Cold Rush, two years in a row and even produced his own ski movies. Sean has no intention of slowing down, his goal is simply to enjoy every moment and inspire the next generation.
