ELYSE SAUGSTAD

SKI - TAHOE CITY, CA

@elysesaugstad

Alaskan attitude, California style and a sense of humor drier than a James Bond Martini. From winning World Titles to hitting that air you just chickened out on, to pulling in 50 pound Salmon and surfing overhead waves, there is nothing Elyse takes on without a full tank of high-octane.

CODY TOWNSEND

SKI - TAHOE CITY, CA

@CODYTOWNSEND

Cody Townsend is that guy who skied that line your grandmother told you about. Growing up in Santa Cruz, California most of Cody’s buddies made fun of him for being so obsessed with the oh-so-uncool sport of skiing. To them it just didn’t make sense that one could surf, skate and then do that thing so closely related to rollerblading. Little did they know that Cody didn’t give a shit what they thought.

KC DEANE

SKI/BIKE - WHISTLER, BC

@kcdeane

Off-season hobbies for most professionals are generally just that, hobbies.  KC Deane has taken his downtime from being a professional skier to developing into a premier mountain biking professional.
