Austin is from Orleans, Ontario Canada and has been on our team as Guide and now Ambassador since 2014. Austin was exposed to the great outdoors from a very young age, leaving him with a fondness for nature and the outdoors that has carried over to his adult life. Austin moved to Whistler originally to ski in 2006, where his drive to get outdoors had him on mountain over a 100 days in his first season. As summer arrived another opportunity to experience nature arrived and in his words “From my first lap ever down Crank It Up and eventually Schleyer and Crabapple Hits I was hooked”. Austin would progress over the years and enjoys competing in multiple disciplines, with several podiums to his name including the Fox Air DH during Crankworx placing 2nd (2013) and 3rd (2014) in the masters category. Austin has long had a positive presence in the community of bike enthusiasts locally and helps to contribute towards the unique feel and vibe you can only experience here.
