If you could ride anywhere in the world, where would you go? Anywhere with a slope steep enough to ride powder.
Favorite Terrain: Freeriding in alpine and treeline areas with lots of powder.
First Time: I was snowboarding at Seymour. My feet were too small for the bindings, so I wore my Dad’s boots outside of mine.
Is snowboarding ready for the Olympics? Maybe. I haven’t decided yet.
If you didn’t snowboard what would you be doing right now? Doing other sports and still having fun.
What do you do when you’re not snowboarding? I like backpacking, mountain biking, going on adventures with my friends.
Who do you ride with the most? I ride with anybody on the hill that day. I ride some with my brother Jorli, and with my friends from Whistler.
If you were going on a trip and could only take five things with you (other than a change of clothes and your snowboard) what would those things be? Deck of cards, camera and film, some close friends, a bike, nuts and bolts.
