Mark McMorris

Double Gold Medalist, X Games

Debuting in Slopestyle at Sochi 2014

Bio

Known for its flatness, love of the Roughriders and now…the best competition snowboarder in the world?

 

Regina’s Mark McMorris has become the leader of a teenage groundswell sweeping snowboarding after winning gold in big air and slopestyle at Winter X 2012 and repeating as slopestyle champion at Winter X 2013 with the highest score ever awarded (98.0).

 

He was the first to win double gold at Winter X since Shaun White did it in 2009 and their growing rivalry has challenged the snowboard supremacy of the once untouchable red-headed superstar.

 

In Sochi 2014, the prairie-prodigy will hope to continue his slopestyle-dominance in the much-anticipated Olympic debut of the discipline.

In unrelated news, it’s a family enterprise. Mark’s brother, Craig, is also a professional snowboarder.
