Jason Mousseau - Growing up in Quebec I know how hard it can be to pursue a skiing career. We have to deal with some of the smallest hills, the worst snow conditions, icy and rutted landings and one of the shortest ski seasons around. All these factors considered, there is still a huge freeskiing scene in Quebec and tons of kids throwing down in the park. If you don’t land, someone will land on you, and the same can be said about trying to make a living being a skier in Quebec. The Gagnier brothers have managed to do so with their creativity and unparallel park skills. If you’ve ever seen a segment of either of them you’d agree with me. Super tweaked grabs, totally unique rail skills, original urban tricks and the ability to spin both ways with the utmost style are a few characteristics they posses. They don’t care what others think and aren’t afraid to try something new and this is what gets me excited to see what they’ll throw down next. Antoine is one of the most underrated skiers I can think of, and that doesn’t phase him but fuels his passion to progress the sport. Charles on the other hand has had tons of success in the competition scene, landing on the podium of the biggest events every year with insane tricks like his switch 12 at the US Open. Pick up BEAVER TALE by Mystic Land Productions to peep Antoine’s epic jump and rails skills, or SAVE by Plehouse to see Charles dominate the scene as always.
Doug Bishop - If you’ve never watched this guy ride a terrain park you’re missing out. Antoine pushes the envelope of uniqueness to a whole new level in the park. Never gets any credit for it, never looks for attention and never listens to the haters, Antoine is out there innovating in the icy Quebec parks all the time. Super nice guy, and every time you see him do a trick you’ll think, “Oh that wacky Antoine Style…” and you’ll enjoy watching it. He was the creator of different grinds on rails/boxes and rarely ever gets credit for it. If you disagree just go find yourself an old copy of Assault – arguably the best park video of all time.
