A product of Prince George, BC, Evan Bichon began snowboarding at the age of 5. His father being a self taught snowboarder took on the role as Evan’s first snowboard coach and seeded the foundation for Evan’s passion for the sport. Evan’s accomplishments over recent years include a 1st place at the 2015 Canada Winter Games, 4th place at the 2016 Youth Winter Olympics Game in Lillehammer, Norway, 1st place at the 2017 Sports Experts Speed Nation Junior Nationals and 5th place at the Sports Experts Speed Nation Nationals in the Senior category the same year.
When he is not training and riding on his board he likes to spend his time skateboarding, hiking, fishing, at the lake hanging out, and doing things that involve adventure and adrenaline rush. Evan has his sights set on making the 2018 Canadian Olympic Team, winning the overall Nor-Am title, and to improve his standing on the World Cup circuit - currently ranked 52nd in the world, with the aim to land a spot on the Canadian National Team.
