AJ is 8 years old and has been snowboarding for 7 years. Here’s an interview by his Mom & Dad.
Reason I love snowboarding: The incredible feeling I get while riding powder.
Who I look out for when I am on the mountain: My friends, oh and my family but they drive me to the hill so I don’t really need to look out for them.
Describe the perfect day on the mountain: Wake up at 6, play video games, eat eggs benny with candy on the side. Ask mom and dad to check the forecast and it says 39cm over night. Gear up and hit the hill. Look out for lots of “Jumperifics”, find my friends and hit the powder. Then an outpost burger for lunch, and start snowboarding again.
Gear: Rome SDS mini shred 115, Burton boots and bindings.
Final words for the people: Don’t “cut” the lift line.
This is my third season with Free Spirit Sports! I am super stoked to get out into the snowy mountains, riding Revelstoke Mountain Resort and exploring the surrounding backcountry. I’m participating in the Freeride World Qualifier Competition series in snowboarding but really I’m just waiting for ski ballet to make a comeback!
Danny has been on the FSS team since day one. He’s a snowboarder and photographer/videographer who loves exploring new terrain and riding big lines in the backcountry. He rides for Prior Snowboards, The North Face and Karakoram. Goals this year- teaching his little girl how to ski!
Nick Mykytiuk first came to Revelstoke in 2011 and fell in love with the small town with big mountains. He likes to get out in the backcountry as much as possible with a sled and splitboard for the steep and deep riding that Revelstoke has to offer. Nick likes to ride natural lines and terrain in the mountains, like cliffs, pillows and steep trees. You will likely see Nick out with his powsurfer riding bindingless in the powder too. This year nick plans on going deeper into the backcountry and exploring new zones and riding bigger lines and couloirs that he’s been looking at for years. If you can dream it, you can do it here in Revelstoke!
Aka “Dinomike”, arrived in revelstoke in 2015. Mike is a talented snowboarder and filmmaker. He has a background in competition, competing in snowboardcross, slopestyle, freeride and halfpipe. Mike has developed a well rounded snowboard style through his passion for film and video making. Mike is one of the FSS team riders and is part of the marketing team. Goals this winter: Film & create more videos
Alex grew up in Revelstoke and have been shredding with FSS since 16, if he’s not under the lift line hooting and hollering you’ll find him smashing pillow lines out south or sending cliffs and building jumps out north!
Tim van der Krogt
Tim was born in Hong Kong and raised in Big White, Tim’s upbringing set him up nicely for the dirtbag snowboarder lifestyle. When Big White got too flat he decided to move on. He chased winter in New Zealand, Japan, Australia and Austria but when he found Revelstoke he looked no further! Four years on and he still loving the vast terrain on offer. You’ll find him touring up on the Pass and counting days up at the resort. He’s looking forward to the 21/22 season, the return of free ride comps, pushing his riding and putting more time into filming.
Years riding: 6
Born: Cranbrook, BC
Gear: burton setup, Lexa bindings, mint boa boots, 140 Kilroy board
Snowboarding is more than a sport to me it is a hobby I can do with my friends and family. When I dream about snowboarding I am landing a 1080 triple cork.
The person I look up to is Jamie Andersen. I watch her on Youtube. My favorite ski area is the North Bowl because I like the powder and finding the red telephone. I don’t understand why I never get the food I order from it.
When I snowboard I love feeling the wind on my face that is cold and fresh and the snow flakes falling around me. I love powder!!!
Bryn is Team FSS’s self-declared Hype-Man. Also known as Brynja, he shreds the lift lines with ruthless authority and can be seen hyping everyone up for the day. Although his true roots lie in the backcountry riding powder and exploring new shots. Bryn will be traveling competing in the Freeride World Qualifiers this year, gunning for that top spot to progress onto the Olympics, I mean, Freeride World Tour, (is there a difference?). Look out for Bryn chucking front 9’s off your favorite cat track.
