Sean Miskiman grew up in Saskatchewan and began snowboarding at age eleven at Mission Ridge Winter Park near Fort Qu’Appelle. His love for snowboarding landed him on the Saskatchewan Development Team, where he was introduced to mountain riding and the fun of a “pow day”.
In Saskatchewan, Sean has awesome memories of riding his 18ft drop-in in his backyard. He grew up admiring the McMorris brothers, as they paved the way for other prairie snowboarders. Sean’s love for the mountains brought him to Banff and Lake Louise, where he and his parents would make trips every other weekend.
At age 13, Sean made the move to Calgary to train with the Winsport Academy Team. Sean has been fortunate to have had many amazing coaches, ride with many friends, both new and old, and travel the world.
At age 15, Sean finished the 2015/16 season 15th overall in Big Air, and 17th overall in Slopestyle on the Canada Rankings List.
During the summer, Sean enjoys fly-fishing on the Bow, skateboarding and surfing whenever he gets the chance.
