From the frozen tundra of Ontario, CASG crew member Cole Drexler slays as hard as the ground in which he hails. Ok so Waterloo might be more suburbia than tundra but tundra sounds better doesn’t it? Anyways make sure to keep reading and get a grasp on how this kid from Ontario is killin’ it with his Afterbangs in his interview with SBCSkier.com
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. -Max Hill
So Cole, where are you resting your head these days?
In my rez building at McMaster University, here in Hamilton, Ontario. Single beds aren’t fun though, no room for movement. I’m studying multimedia and communications, which is probably one of the easier programs only. I only have one midterm!
Where do you see that taking you?
Hopefully somewhere in the ski industry, whether it’s with filming/editing of some sort or even design work. I want to stay in this industry because it’s pimp and I’d be working with something I am actually passionate about. I don’t care for huge pay cheques as long as I’m doing something I love, skiing, and am able to live comfortably.
If you love what you do, you won’t work a day in your life. What’s your plan for the winter?
This semester I’m sticking to school, because it was the easiest thing to do for rez as first year student. That being said, I’m gonna shoot every single thing on and around campus with my homie Ralph Damman. I’m also planning to ski Blue Mountain every weekend and get in some Christmas and reading week trips. Once school’s done, I want to spend my spring in Whistler or Mammoth.
Oh and get some shit rolling with Traveling Circus again.
Who else from CASG will be spending their winter in Ontario?
Everyone will be around at some point or another. Max and Jessica are popping off doing their thing out west, but other than that the rest of us are here. I have a good feeling Matt Brindisi is going to blow up this year and I think Ralph wants to make more edits so we’ll see how that goes. We never end up filming as much as we want to but hopefully we get some more tape rolling.
How many edits do you guys plan on dropping? When can we expect the first one?
15. Realistically though, probably 4 or 5. That’s my goal at least. I want to get as many as possible out there, but at the same time we aren’t going to be putting out edits for the sake of getting something out there. If that makes sense? We have to get some good shit before our first edit drops but you guys can defintiley expect some bangin tricks you’ve never seen before.
“The first edit will be dropping November 11th, 2010. Remember the date.” – Max Hill
