Short in stature but the dude goes BIG. Sweetin’s career has skyrocketed over the last few years taking him around the globe from AK to Japan, but he still finds himself taking Summit park laps every time he returns to the Pacific Northwest.

Never a dull moment when this guy is strapped in. Hiro looks at features with a different eye and his creativity combined with raw talent as made him into a snowboarder’s snowboarder. Whether he’s driving fast cars, or maneuvering his board through the trees, the dude is charging.

A professional boarder for Lib Tech Snowboards, Mervin manufacturing Team Manager across snow and skate, Think Thank Founder/Filmer/Editor/Rider/Bossman; Jesse Burtner could quite possibly be the most interesting man in the world. This being said you will also catch him sessioning the weirdest thing he can find in the Summit Parks any given afternoon. This guy does it all.

A Pure bread powder hound, John Shaw can be spotted from the lift at Alpental, sending cliffs and steeps only the pros are sizing up…that’s if he’s not constantly barreled inside of the white wave.

Elected Mayor of Tube City, Stefan Krum is a park vandal that is sure to please. Not only will this guy shred every jib and jump until close, he will shovel and groom them back to perfection (because it’s his job).

AKA Alpental Andy. If you guessed he spends a lot of time at Alpental, you would be correct. On any given day Andy can be found slaying gnarly lines in the Back Bowls, touring the vast Alpental Valley, teaching his kids how to pizza on Bernard, or chillin' in his trailer in lot 3 after a good day. Don't let his growing family fool you though, he still goes huge and still makes it look easy.

Jamie is one hard working skier. He spends a lot of time slappin his sticks down on our jibs, but he's also a critical part of our park crew. Spending countless hours working on features, because he knows when the park is on point the hott laps flow like [insert favorite rapper here].

Rory is an all around badass skier. He grew up ski racing, so you know he charges and his technique outside the park is flawless. However, unlike most ex-ski racers, Rory pretty much maxes out the style meter with every move he makes. Bam, that's a combo!

Clint "Big Burd" Christen brings a style second to none, his tall stature and extra smooth technique really set him apart from the crowd. Take some laps with Big Burd and you'll quickly realize he's super humble, has a big ol' bag of tricks, is down to lap, but is all about getting it done... waiting around is not in Clint's playbook.
