First memory of snowboarding?
Backhill adventures around Farmington on snowy nights on my Burton Woody.
Last memory of snowboarding?
Today at Blackcomb with multiple generations of snowboarders that spanned from the first Burton team, the creator of Canada’s first snowboard shop, my first team tech and his son.. it was epically fun and so cool to witness different generations all having fun carving around in spring corn.
How has your appreciation of snowboarding evolved over the years?
It’s much more about community these days. Passing on knowledge, and yet still having moments when conditions are right when I can still be evolving my riding and pushing my boundaries.
What keeps you busy off the mountain?
My family, my farm, and enjoying nature in its different mediums.

Seth Wescott Pro Snowboard$1,000.00
Seth Wescott Pro Snowboard
"My board is the culmination of years of fine tuning shapes. It’s mainly made for banked slalom but it really is an all mountain machine for attacking terrain. It’s a lay it over and rail board."
"The Swallowtail is the classic Winterstick powder machine. More float in all conditions and truly shines when it gets deep. The days I ride my swally are the best days of my year."
Day Dreamer Snowboard$1,200.00 – $1,300.00
Day Dreamer Snowboard
"The Daydreamer has become my daily go to the last three years. Rails on hardpack, floats when it gets deep and has the playfulness of tail flex thrown in."
"The Roundtail is my other go to resort day powder board. More taper for more fun. Skateboard like feel when it comes to ollies. Rails turns and shines in steep deep trees."
