Bio: Born on December 22, 1999, in the vibrant ski town of Rossland, BC, this accomplished skier’s journey began at the tender age of 3. Mentored by Simon Hillis and affectionately known as JR, he has left an indelible mark on the skiing world. Sponsored by HEAD, Red Mountain, and Swany, his accolades include two years of filming with “The Blank Collective” and contributing to HEAD’s inaugural team film. With published photos in leading magazines and a burgeoning social media presence, reaching over a million followers last year, he is carving a unique path in the industry. On the slopes, the allure of RED lies in its endless terrain, explored passionately for two decades. Beyond skiing, catch him training at the gym, riding bikes, or engaging in offbeat rituals like hiring a Shaman to cleanse his skis. Embracing the mantra “HEE-HAW” and foreseeing a whimsical future standing in a puddle wearing a paper hat, his journey is a fusion of skill, eccentricity, and unbridled passion for the slopes.
