Meet Jake. Big mountain skier, trail ripper and "ski movie star" in the Dollar Short. You might remember his double back flip into Corbett's in Kings & Queen's but we are sure you ain't seen nothing yet about what the future holds for this Sweet Protection athlete.
Trampolines have been my favorite thing since I was 12 years old
Traveling to new places, being able to ski in new mountains is one of the coolest things I can think of.

Moose! Those things are huge. And also can run though like 4 feet of snow without a problem. I was on a bike ride the other day and saw one, cool animals.
A good family friend told me to pursue my passion before anything else, and everything else will fall into place. That has really stuck with me through the years, and has allowed me to excel in what I do!

50 Classic Ski Descents of North America. I couldn't tell you how many times I've read that book growing up. So many of those lines peak my interest. That style of skiing is where I would like to progress in the future.
Such a hard question! My music changes so much, last winter was a lot of rap and reggae music. My all time favorite album is the Clarence Greenwood Recordings by Citizen Cope.
