Johannes Liaboe

Johannes Liaboe

Freeski Travel

Johannes is a hard working, big smiling, trick tossing boss man. He came into this season with a small bag of tricks, but through his hard work, dedication, and positive attitude, his repertoire is rapidly growing. Starting with rodeos in Park City, to bios and now cork 7’s, there doesn’t seem to be a limit to what Yo can do. He’s a trendsetter and a great role model for the rest of the team. Proud to have him on the squad.

Big Mountain X

Aaron Gathrid might be the quiet type, but his strong skiing and unbridled positive attitude have been doing the talking for him. Since joining SVSEF this fall, Aaron has been on the fast track of progression. Not only has his ski talent expanded to a whole new level, but his camaraderie and caring mentality for the group has truly shown what a great person he is. 

Aaron has been tackling every obstacle you can throw his direction, it’s been an absolute pleasure watching him along the way.

Elliot Boiron

Freestyle Progression

Elliot has proven that talking about skiing doesn’t make you the best skier. He encourages his peers to push their limits by pushing his own. He is always ready to go big, whether others will or not. Elliot supports his teammates if they stomp it or blow up. He’s a great kid, always with a smile on his face and the boldness to get back on his feet after landing on his butt.
