Born in Melbourne, Australia and grew up skiing at Mt Hotham ski resort in Australia's south east. I've been chasing winters around the world back to back since 2009 filling the financial gaps coaching the Mt Hotham Freeski team during southern winters. On the side I'm completing a Bachelor of Business online as I travel in an attempt to support the lifestyle in the future. After spending 4 years travelling Europe, Japan and Canada in search of the ultimate freeride resort I planted my feet in Jackson 4 seasons ago and haven't been able to leave since, no where offers the access to terrain like this town does. Recently won the BullerX big mountain competition run by TGR photographer Tony Harrington during the southern winter and eager and humbled for the opportunity to test myself amongst the line up of shredders who call this place home. There's no place like the Tetons.

I’m a professional snowboarder born and raised in the town of Jackson, WY. I started skiing at the age of 2 with the support of my dad who was on the JHMR ski patrol for over 25 years. I switch over to snowboarding or a.k.a “ The Dark Side”, as my dad would call it, at the age of 6. With snowboarding being the new fun thing in the mountains it became clear to me that I wanted to work as hard as I possibly could to achieve the dream of being a professional snowboarder. I competed at a young age and as I got older I started to get more interested in the filming side of the sport. I grew up watching snowboard videos with idols I looked up to my whole life. The last three years I worked on the new Red Bull Media House movie called, “The Fourth Phase” and Arbor Snowboards movie, “ Cosa Nostra”. Im so grateful to be doing what I do for a living and wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of my sponsors and amazing family. I’m currently working on new film projects and hope to live this dream, for many more years to come.

Coming from a family where snowboarding and pushing limits in the great outdoors runs in the blood, Blake was already strapping in and gliding down the snow-covered hills of Vermont’s backcountry at the age of four. A few years later his family picked up shop and headed west, settling in Jackson Hole, WY — a move that would forever distinguish the young rider’s career.
With mentors Aaron Robinson, Bryan Iguchi and fellow The North Face athlete Mark Carter influencing the scene like never before, Blake fell under the wings of snowboarding’s best at an early age, giving birth to his own unique to style and personality.
For most big mountain skiers- powder, mountains and big lines occupy the entirety of their daylight hours and even dreams. Hadley Hammer does not fit this stereotype. Though she crushes the big lines with the best of them as demonstrated with her competition record on the Freeride World Tour and film segments with Teton Gravity Research and Sherpas Cinema, Hadley also happens to be a sommelier, gourmet chef, book nerd, and climber to name just a fraction of her side hobbies. Growing up in Jackson, WY, Hadley was brought up in the mountains, spending all her time chasing her brothers around the Tetons. As college approached, Hadley recognized the benefits of a formal career outside of her mountain life though and and headed east for a B.A in Hospitality and Economics. After a few years working in the urban hotel world, she recognized a key component missing and headed back to her mountain base to achieve a greater balance between career and lifestyle. Cultivated by rock climbing and skiing before she could even walk, balance is the name of her game and now manifests itself in her big mountain skiing pursuits and complimentary lifestyle.

The pillow-popping chief and master of butters from Vermont—now living in Colorado—has plenty to look back on from his years as a pro.
I started skiing when I was about 3 years old. When I was 8 I joined the Mt. Snow freestyle team. Throughout high school I went to the Mt. Snow Academy, in Vermont so that I could ski every day during the winter months. When I graduated high school I moved to Mammoth Lakes, California where I have been for the past 4 seasons.
