Guys like Kris Wilson are a lot of fun to watch. He and his friends (Jon Roth and Jesse Fox) made the big move from Ontario to Whistler last year, and it took them about a season of head rolling to adjust to landing and riding in deep snow. Kris has since figured out how to ride powder and along the way progressed into a solid shredder. Not only is he fun as hell to hang and shred with, but Wilson’s also the naked boarder who airs over two hot chicks in Sprite’s latest TV campaign. All in all, this kid has got moves.¿Dionne Delesalle
