Highlights of last season? The Videotrip road trip I took with some of my best friends.

Tell us about Superunknown? Private park, private lift, perfect jumps and the best sleeping arrangement of any ski trip. Add that all up with 10 other riders and a film crew. There really wasn't much more we could ask for. It was one hell of a week and I was very fortunate to have been a part of it.

Did you enjoy filming with Brotherhood Films? Yeah, for the most part. Quebec is really sweet and there is tons of street features. The only problem filming with a crew from there is a lot of the time you have no idea what they're saying. But other than that It's always a great time.

How was your summer? It was great!! I finished up my first venture of schooling. Hung out in the water a bunch and soaked up the sun. But I'm glad it's over, I'm ready for the snow to start falling.

Plans for the season? Lots of plans. Still trying to solidify them all. It's going to be a big season though!

What made you choose to ride Digit poles? Rad Dudes and Rad Poles.

Other Sponsors? O'Neill, Coal Headwear, Full tilt, Pow Gloves, Mons Royale.

What do you like to do in your free time when you’re not skiing? Hit up a hot tub with a cold one!
