Discipline: Snowboarding: Freestyle & Backcountry.

Originally from: From Mont-Tremblant, Quebec and I've been living in Whistler or a little South for 14 years.

Whistler or Blackcomb: Whistler on a powder day, Blackcomb for park, halfpipe and busy days.

Whistler Blackcomb Wonder: No matter what the weather is doing, you can always find some sweet untouched spots with nobody around. It's a place where you know you'll always find friends to ride with and have a good time.

First time skiing or riding at Whistler Blackcomb: I was 15 and it had been my dream to come here. Coming from East Coast I didn't understand that even if it was torrential rain in the village that it could be snowing on top. The next day was a perfect blue bird day for days with 50 new cm of powder. A few days later was the Westbeach Classic, that snowboard event changed my life. I started competing the year after with the only goal of moving to Whistler ASAP.
