This kid knows how to snowboard, and that’s an empirical fact! There’s only one person that snowboards like Erik, and that’s Erik. Also a fact. After growing up riding Bear Mountain, CA, Erik made the move to Truckee, CA where he currently resides and works as a barista. Whether it be powder, slush, bumps, rails, half pipe, or pine needles, Erik rides it all with unique style and originality that few possess.

HOME MOUNTAIN: Mammoth, CA
When it comes to Mike Gray, there is no gray area. He’s either on or off. When he’s not feeling down, he’s getting super high in Mammoth’s Unbound Park… like really high… in the air! It’s weird because when he gets that high, he spins all day day long but never pukes, which is even more bizarre when you consider that Mike is always getting sick.

BC legend Dave Short has been in the game longer than the longest unchallenged nontechnical word in the English language, Floccinaucinihilipilification. If you don’t know what that means, don’t feel bad because Dave doesn’t either.
