Jack was nearly born into snowboarding, starting to ride at the young age of 3. His mom being a snowboard instructor at Fortress Mountain would take Jack to Fortress regularly to learn the basics. As Jack was too small for most equipment back then his mom would stuff pairs of snowboard gloves into the back of his bindings in order to make the board fit. He grew up riding Canada Olympic Park and continued to ride in snowboard programs at the hill.
Jack’s recent accomplishments are a 2nd place finish in halfpipe at the 2017 Sport Chek Air Nation event at Canada Olympic Park, 14th in halfpipe at the Europa Cup in Laax, Switzerland, and a 3rd place finish in halfpipe at the Canadian National Junior Championships in 2016.
When he’s not snowboarding Jack spends his times skateboarding, golfing, surfing and going on hikes in the mountains near his cabin around Radium, BC. His goals for the upcoming season are to continue climbing up the Canadian ranking list and progress towards becoming an Olympian for Canada.
