Sponsors: Salomon, Billabong, Anon, Drop, Eesa, Empire Boardshop
Years snowboarding: 12
Roots: Montreal, Quebec
Home: Whistler, B.C.
Weight: 120 lbs.
Stance: Goofy, 23 inches wide, with eighteen degrees on the front foot and negative-six on the rear.
Forward lean: Not much, unless I ride halfpipe-then I’ll use a little bit so the backside wall is easier to get up.
Board: I ride the Salomon Ivy in size 151, 154, and 157 ($470). The 157 is for freeriding-it’s really easy to control, but powerful and snappy, too. The smaller sizes work really well for me in the park-the shape and flex is great for jibbing, and unlike most park boards, they carve super well at high speeds.
Boots: Salomon Optima in black, size 8 ($249).
Bindings: Salomon Antidotes in black ($179).
Personal settings: I always wear custom orthotic footbeds, and I use boot heaters on the really cold days.
Tuning techniques: I detune my board a little bit to ride the park, and I probably wax every five times riding or something.
Jacket: Billabong Down Ever ($250).
Pants: Billabong Three Layer ($220).
Gloves: Drop Women’s Down Mitt ($60).
Goggles: Anon Majestic Hydro ($85).
Riding style: Powder is definitely my favorite-it’s hard to beat those deep Whistler pow days when you get to ride different terrain all day, from trees and pillows to cliffs and long, glacier runs. I also like pipe and jumps, but nothing’s better than a good powder day.
