Q. Justin, you are an amazing Freestyle Skier, tell us, what are your plans for this upcoming year?
Q. What are your 2 favorite Resorts to ski when you come to P.C.? Why?
A. I love skiing at Park City, this was my main resort for 4 years as I went to college in Utah. I have so many awesome memories from competing at this mountain back in high school, coaching the freestyle team during college and taking countless laps through one of the best terrain parks in the world.
My second pick is Brighton Resort, it’s a much different vibe than skiing at PC, their park is amazing and it’s a rad resort to rip on pow day.
Q. People love food, especially in Park City. Do you have a favorite place you go each time you’re in town?
A. My lifestyle requires me to live frugally so I’m generally looking for a good bang for my buck. I have a lot of memories eating at Albertos with friends after a nice day on the mountain.
Q. You’re coming off of a recent ACL surgery, will that change how you ski?
A. The new knee is feeling good! I am 7.5 months out of my reconstructive surgery and I’ll be skiing again very soon. It really has taken time, I’m working hard to rebuild muscle and confidence, consistent PT goes far. Taking it easy is the goal for skiing this spring and summer in preparation for a big comeback season next year. I’ve learned a lot through this experience and truly believe I will come back stronger than before, both mentally and physically.
Q. We’ve had the opportunity to work with you a handful of times now. When you’re here at Summit, what treatment do you enjoy the most and why?
Q. What is the OnSlaught Crew? How did it come to be? What is the crew planning this year?
A. The OS Crew is a group of extremely passionate people who love extreme sports and the outdoors. We have been making sturdy gear to shred in or wear around town since 2007, and we have put out 5 full length ski movies and gone on tour to premiere these films all over the northwest and Canada. Putting on rail jams, collaborating with resorts and giving back to extreme sports communities is something we love to do. Our headquarters is in Boise, ID.
My older brother Mason and I started OnSlaught Crew in 2007 with our friends, we began documenting our extreme sports and making clothing. It all started as a group of friends who wanted to be the ones in the movies we would watch. We channeled or inspiration from Level1, Matchstick productions and other big names in the action sports industry to creating our own crew to push the limits of our sports.
Q. How old were you when you first started skiing?
Q. What do you love most about skiing?
Q. You ski all over North America, besides Park City, what other place do you enjoy skiing frequently during the season?
A. Whistler Resort is one of my all-time favorite places to travel to and ski. The mountains are beautiful and I always enjoy the Canadian experience. Boreal Resort in Cali is always super fun to hit up as well, I have been a guest at Woodward summer camps there which is super sick. Mount Hood is great for summer skiing, I have been the last 5 seasons in a row, mostly because this resort turns in to a hub for people all over the northwest to come ski and camp in the summer, the volcano vibes are unlike any other. My hometown resort, Bogus Basin is a must ski every season when I’m home between travels, it’s where it all started for me and the crew so it will always hold a special place in my heart.
