Its been long overdue, but we need to introduce the riders on our team this year. Alot of them are quite vocal in the NS community, and all of them have a particular style and attitude that we love and want to see more of.

WILLEM COLLIER

Birthday: February 27, 1992

Home Mountains: Park City (likely to change), Alta

Where you ride now: Park City, Alta, backcountry destinations, and concrete waves.

ON3P Quiver: 181 Blue Steele's and 181 Caylor's

What's so great about your mountain?

I don't think there is anything in the world that beats waking up at 5:30 AM, beating the Little Cottonwood Canyon closure, waiting in the Gold Minors Daughter, and then finally skiing off of one of the first Wildcat chairs of the morning in deep blower Utah pow all while getting cheered on by the loudest most righteous crowd of old Alta geezers you ever could imagine. Long sentence, but I think that sums up why Alta is great.

Favorite photographer/filmer?

I would say Eddie Grams, who films Variety Pack (snowboarding) is probably my favorite filmer for his artsy and raw style. Trevor Woods is my favorite photographer because he is cute ;).

Favorite thing you enjoy doing on skis?

3 things:

1: Anything and everything to do with skiing deep powder.

2: Lapping a fun jump line when you're feelin' it.

3: backflips

If you could spend a week skiing anywhere, where would it be?

This ones a bit far fetched: Gulmarg, India. Epic cultural experience, guns, and (I would assume) a lot of untracked powder on wildly different terrain.

Why do you ski so much?

Because its the easiest way to do a backflip.

SAM HURST

Birthday: October 16, 1990

Home Mountain: Solitude

Where you ride now: Park City Mountain Resort / Snowbird / Utah backcountry / Urban

ON3P Quiver: CAYLORS Ė Just how I like em, fat and playful. VERY easy to ride and maneuver through tight situations. Good backcountry jib ski. BLUE STEELES Ė Incredibly solid park ski. Completely symmetrical, light (bamboo!), poppy, and radical graphics!

Whatís so great about your mountain?

PCMR Ė Huge community of freeskiers who all know each other and just have FUN. We donít train here. If youíre looking to do some of that, you know where to go. Iíd give you a hint, but if I make it blatantly obvious all the kids from Colorado will get mad at me. Wait a minuteÖ

Snowbird Ė Steep and deep.

Favorite photographer/filmer?

Photographer Ė Trevor Woods. Just look at the picture that is somewhere near these questions. Not only a skilled photographer, but an outrageously good graphic designer as well.

Filmer Ė Kevin Steen. The mastermind behind Clown School media. Kevin knows how to capture and illustrate the fun aspects of whatever it is heís filming. If there was someone about to provide a worthy trick for an edit vs. someone smiling off in the distance, he would most likely pan over and film the kid who is smiling. And his long blonde hair is so dreamy.

Favorite thing you enjoy doing on skis?

No matter what size, shape, or form, if I can backflip off it, Iíll enjoy it.

If you could spend a week skiing anywhere, where would it be?

Chamonix. Willem went there, and itís all he talks about. Iím jealous.

Why do you ski so much?

I ski because it is the single, most fun thing, Iíve ever done. That is why I have kept doing it since my father first took me when I was just three years old. I love to ski for the moments, and memories it provides on a daily basis, and will continue to do it my whole life.

What's so great about your mountain?

It snows a ton, then the sun comes out and everybody gets super duper rad and skis down and jumps off things for crying out loud. I mean, it's Squaw Valley!... and I only live 10 minutes away, which is cool.

Favorite photographer/filmer?

Filmer: Jeff Thomas (Theory-3/PBP). Jeffy's the man... builds mean booters and slings tequila like Wyatt Earp. As far as photographers, a fine-art photographer from the UK/PNW named Michael Kenna (Michael Kenna) is the man. His images are phenomenal... and otherwise... i gotta go ahead and plug http://www.japhotog.com. Cough cough.

Favorite thing you enjoy doing on skis?

I'd say everything but crashing, but crashing's not all bad either. Except ski boots... I hate ski boots. Just gotta reach for CR and think about how today is going to be the greatest day ever.

If you could spend a week skiing anywhere, where would it be?

AK, no doubt... Haines, Valdez... wherever, AK is seriously skiing's land of milk and honey. I do want to ski Russia someday.

Why do you ski so much?

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand the question... laugh. I definitely do not ski enough. Maybe I ski because I see people like Shane or CR out there... RIP... or Seth or Abma or Sage or JP doing what they do and just can't help myself.
