Max Hill recently called out the raw skills and growing reputation of Cole Drexler on SBC Skier’s site. Not only do we get great insight into Cole’s background and how he has moved up through the ranks (with obvious help from his Afterbangs), we also get to see Max’s literary skills. Let us know if that freeskiing thing doesn’t work out for you Max, you can write for us!

But for reals Cole Drexler is legit, so pay attention.

It’s getting hard to not hear
an echo when bringing up the
name Cole Drexler. With a
fresh diploma in his hand and a
recent handshake with Line and
Joystick, Cole is getting all the
arms he needs to reach the top
on his way up the ranks.
Originally hailing from
Waterloo, Ont., Cole moved to
Collingwood at the age of 11,
quit racing when he was 14 and
checked into the park scene
with a one-way ticket. Cole
is not your average jibber’s
delight and best known for the
“deadlung, pivot” landings and
the “off that” trick inventions.
Opposed to the addictive
compulsion of dialing in a
comp run day-in-day-out, he’s
creating next year’s trends and
documenting the rights to his
own success.
Cole’s had support getting
here, too. Growing up in a
family of skiers he may be
one of the only kids whose
parents approached him about
spending his grade 11 year in
Whistler—where he logged
over 120 days on the slay
mission. Last season he took
his quiver of tricks and entered
the first two rail jams of the
season in Collingwood, winning
both. Suddenly the local lift
line for Cole got a lot shorter
even on a busy day.
After making noise online, It
was inevitable he would link up
on a trail of destruction filming
for the Voleurz family. With his
local band of misfits behind
him and the industry turning
heads and pages, just make
sure you get front row when he
comes to a city near you.
