Jasper is a BC Provincial Freestyle Snowboard Team Alumni, Canada Snowboard Coach and CASI Instructor. He grew up riding at Hemlock Valley and in Mt. Seymour's terrain park. Always spreading the stoke, building jumps, thinking 'outside the box' and taking riding to the next level.You won't miss seeing him at any rail jam or comp, sending it huge for a spot on the podium or a glove full of cash. Jasper recently jumped into the Pro category and continues to kill it in comps.
Austin is one of our original coaches, having grown up at Hemlock Valley and working in the Terrain Park, he still calls the newly named Sasquatch Mountain home! Austin has a natural love for snowboarding and it was ingrained in his life at a young age. His rail game is d.o.p.e. and he openly shares the stoke for the 'spin to win' rail game and all terrain riding. Austin coaches both the Super Groms at Sasquatch Mountain and the Sasquatch Comp Team.
