About Sammy

Where is your favorite place to snowboard and why?

The Sierra and Alaska. I learned to snowboard in Alaska. When I moved to Tahoe I found a happy medium where I had a steep playful terrain similar to Alaska, but on a smaller scale. Tahoe is like a mountain skatepark!

What has snowboarding or the mountains taught you?

Snowboarding has taught me to be respectful, patient, responsible and grateful for my life. In my mind it's never been a sport, it's always been a culture and no matter who you are or where your from, if you love snowboarding we can speak the same language.

Tell us about one incredible or influential snowboarding achievement or moment.

Winning the freeride world tour through so many hurdles and injuries was a huge acomplishement for me. To repeat as champ twice more solidified that hard work and perseverance are things I must strive for in all aspects of my life.

What are you passionate about besides snowboarding?

I’m passionate about my kids, family, friends, skateboarding, art, the outdoors, 49ers/Giants baseball floating rivers, cooking over open flames, coffee, candy, movies, jokes, darts and seafood!

"Floats like duck in pow but charges like a moose. Also handles the chunder like a beast. Great for long tours in any condition. If you use your split a lot, and want it to last, this is the board for you!"
