Bryn has served on the FWT Riders Union promoting Freeride through the tour and the IFSA. Freeride! Keep the vibe high!
Alex grew up in Revelstoke and spent many days skipping school to go catch freshies. You’ll usually find him tearing it up anywhere the snow is good and deep or in the park when it’s not. Past times include bagging the sled, the truck and body with any adrenaline inducing activities Alex can find. Favorite Trick: Flat 3 tail / Favorite run: Separate Reality

Kevin’s favorite dance move is anything soul train, best trick is Canadian Bacon and favorite food is roast beef. He enjoys long rides in the white room down to high fives and cold ones with friends.
You can usually catch Kevin exploring the deep powder of the Monashee mountains, crushing out some days at Revelstoke Mountain Resort or maybe even in a red uniform, struggling to complete my volunteer quota in ski patrol land. Wherever you find Kevin, there’s probably a good time and a high five at the least!
