Top influencers growing up? Who’d you look up to? I liked War a lot. That movie was rad. I always liked JP Auclair but I don’t think my skiing or filmmaking ever drew anything from his style to be honest. But Nimbus has always been a really big influence for me. Ask anyone who knows me hahah

What keeps you skiing? The chicks, mostly….naaaaah haha

Will you ever retire? I’d never quit skiing I don’t think. I assume my focus in the ski industry will change over time but I plan to stay on the path I am now, where that leaves me I’m not sure!

What’s the best trick you could do when you were 12 years old? Backflip!

What’s the best day you’ve ever had on skis? There’s like five every year. This year was Christmas holidays in Fernie. There was 4 days in a row where it felt like you could just go land on your head and it’d be chill. Best week ever

How do you setup / tune your gear to your preference? Mount skis around centre (often really crooked) give them a medium detune then ski them into the ground.

You can either spend the day in a bullet-proof terrain park or warm, wet heavy pow – which do you choose? Oh god wet heavy pow, every time.

Ever had a run in with Ski Patrol? Our first lap ever in Japan we found this amazing tree triangle night skiing and it seemed like no one had skied it all week. After a few laps of being dumb Canadians, a super Japanese man in red came and freaked the hell out. Turned out it was super not open. So we told him we were guests at the Hilton and he let us go.

6. Colter Hinchliffe’s Sandstone & Snow released by TGR

“Last winter, instead of exploring Alaska, British Columbia, or Japan, Colter Hinchliffe found himself in another outdoor paradise: Moab. Few would think of the sandstone paradise—a mecca for climbing—as a place to push one’s ability skiing. However, Colter was inspired by the terrain and grabbed a pair of skis to explore the peaks of the La Sal mountain range.” READ MORE AT TETON GRAVITY.

7. Repeat Offender, Leo Taillefer wins GoPros Line of the Year…again!

8. Hadley Hammer sends it in Teton Gravity’s Tight, Loose & more!

Hadley Hammer has been consistently going 100% each season and it’s definitely shown this past season – between her segment in TGR’s Tight, Loose, her artic adventures in Girls Gone Polar and her own featured podcast on Powder, Nausicaa Cast – you better watch & listen!
