Interview:

hat has been the highlight of your career so far?

This might sound super rookie but winning one of the Young Gun Open stops. It was a long ass time ago but at that time I was sooo stoked on it.

What is your favourite park feature?

True Table

What is your favourite trick?

Switch 7

What are your goals for the 2010-2011 season?

Get on the podium at, at least one major event.

What is your single biggest career goal?

Get paid to ski with my friends.

In your opinion, is it more important to be stylish or progressive?

I really like to try and progress my skiing as much as possible but I don't usually film or compete a trick unless I feel it has good style, so I guess a little bit of both.

What athletes do you look up to?

Tanner Hall, Mark Abma, Sammy Carlson.

What are your three favourite albums?

Not to sure about what albums but right now I'm pretty stoked on Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and David Bowie.

What's the last book you read?

Rich Dad, Poor Dad.

If you weren't skiing or riding, what career would you be pursuing?

I wish I could say something cool or super smart but in all reality it would probably be construction. Maybe going to school for business.

What is the weirdest thing you've seen in skiing/snowboarding?

Pep doing a switch right 180 and then reverting back 360 to the left at the Jon Olsson Invitational a while back.

What is your favourite ski or snowboard film segment?

Pep in 1242, that movie is still my favorite to this day.

What kind of cross training do you do to stay fit in the off-season?

Hit the gym when I can, and skateboard as much as possible.

What other sports do you play?

Skateboard, beach volleyball, and anything else that is fun at the time, nothing seriously.

In your opinion, which contest format is better; rider-judged or professionally-judged?

Tough to say, ifyou have a rider-judged event that is judged laterwith video reviewfrom the comp that would be perfect, but it's tough to do that with slopestyle.

Do you have a morning routine or ritual before riding?

Not really, eat breakfast and listen to some music to try and get stoked.

What are your top 3 skiing or riding destinations?

Keystone for park, Whistler for pow and terrain, and Silver Star just because its home and super fun with all the boys.

What three items can you not live without?

Friends, chicks, food.

Worst Trend In Skiing In The Last Five Years?

Multi colour tall t's.

What is the most important after skiing or snowboarding?

Stretching.

What vehicle do you drive?

Ford F-150

Who is in your day-to-day skiing/riding crew?

Well, it's tough because we aren't together as much as we want but my favorite crew is Dorey, Chug, Riley Leboe TJ, Bibby, Marg.

Famous last words?

Set to subwax.
