Like many riders on the national team, Michael Nazwaski saw the light at the age of 5 and traded his skis in for a snowboard. Watching other snowboarders race was quite the inspiration for the young Nazwaski, who joined the Beaver Valley Snowboard race team at the age of 9 with his coach Cam Farrell.
With a slew of podiums in the NorAM cup last season, Nazwaski is looking to make waves during the 2018/19 season by aiming for a top three overall ranking on the NorAM circuit, and a top 8 performance at the Junior World Championships. When he’s not boarding or training, you can find him racing his mountain bike or doing cyclocross.
