Bio: What’s up guys! My name is Jeff Ashton and I’m a 26-year-old freeskier from Castlegar. I have been shredding RED ever since I first set foot on skis at age 3. I am a former big mountain competitor of the IFSA junior circuit. I have competed all over North America for many years and even made my way up to the Junior World Championships in Andorra, Europe in 2016.
