Passionately snowboarding since 1990, Joey jumped to splitboarding 10 years ago and hasn't looked back. Calling Revelstoke, BC his home, he can endlessly explore the mountains outside his front door. With the technological advances for splitboarders he sees nothing but opportunity to push the sport further. In his words "We're not just a bunch of knuckle draggers anymore!

Q&A
  • Favourite G3 Gear: Alpinist Splitboard Skins, they do it all... glide, climb and stay on with help from the simple tail clasp. I love the utlity straps too, good for everything...I think one is holding my trailer fender on right now
  • Favourite Peak: Corbin, Rogers Pass. It has a very impressive south face.
  • How Did You Get Started Backcountry Skiing: I grew up in the Rockies and every year pre-season shredding was what we did. The ski hills weren't open so we would go to places like Ray Glacier, Robertson glacier and Ptarmigan Cirque. We would go build jumps and ride through mine fields of rocks.
  • Favourite Backcountry Trip: We did a day traverse 2 years ago that started off with a long heli ride out to the South end of Glacier National Park. From there we worked our way back towards the highway summiting 4 mountains, (Faith, Hope, Charity and Patience). We covered over 20 km's and rode almost 10000'.
  • Best Backcountry Advice Received: Travelling safely in the mountains requires contstant attention, kinda like a relationship." - un-named guide
  • Skiing Bucket List: Summit more mountains, slash more pow, have more fun.
  • I Choose G3 Because: I appreciate a company that develops new ideas and builds quality products. Something the world of Splitboarding needs!
