While calm and calculated on the exterior, Whistler local Callum Pettit has stepped up to some of the rowdiest lines ever descended on skis. Growing up shredding some of the gnarliest terrain in North America has given Callum an in-depth knowledge of the mountains, which he is stoked to pass on to up and coming big mountain shredders. Callum’s accolades include winner of ‘Best Line’ and ‘Full Throttle’ for his part in Sherpas Cinema’s Into the Mind at the 2013 Powder awards.
Former camper and member of the British Slopestyle Team, ‘Woodsy’ totally hit his stride this season winning the World Cup Slopestyle Overall Title and a Silver medal at the World Championships. He is the first British skier to win a World Cup Globe and has been crowned British Slopestyle Champion 5 times!
Woodsy’s easy going and fun personality make him a firm favorite at Momentum.
Olympic half pipe Gold medallist, reigning World Champion, X-Games (2016) Gold medallist- you couldn't have a more stacked resume. On meeting Cassie, you wouldn't realise she is one of the fiercest competitors in freeskiing. However, her game face is strictly reserved for the top of the halfpipe and on a day to day basis, this girl is more bubbly than your favourite soda. Cassie's cat-like skills transfer effortlessly from the half-pipe across to jumps, hips and rails, where she's constantly challenging herself and everyone around her to learn something new.
Fabian has represented Switzerland at 2 x Winter Olympics, won an X-Games gold and silver medal in Big Air and took the 2015 World Champion title for slopestyle- all before his 21st birthday! Not to mention his international infamy for gaining hang time on escalators in exotic places. The Swiss Bosch has crazy air awareness, leading to some wild antics in the air that will blow your mind.
Phil, aka B-Dog, is at the forefront of modern skiing’s park, urban and backcountry progression with a technique that’s uniquely his. And some free advice: don’t challenge him to a game of chess. Former Canadian Freeski team member and X-Games competitor, Phil now focuses on shooting mind blowing film parts. He just recently won X-Games Real Ski Gold for his most recent urban edit, below.
Tom joined the Momentum coaching crew in 2011 and we were stoked on how well he fit in with the program. His positive, modest and easy-going personality along with his very smooth technical ability made him an instant hit. We are excited to welcome him back again this summer after another successful season on the circuit.
Tom is still at the top of the game right now , with his seemingly effortless style he has walked away with almost every big win, including X-Games Gold, World Championship Gold, War of the Rails Gold, Dew Tour Gold plus the overall Dew Cup and AFP Titles! But what really tops this all off is the fact that he is also studying at the University of Utah where he has made the Deans list twice! This is the kind of role model we are very proud to have on board with us.
This Whistler local's huge bag of tricks and uncanny air awareness has began turning heads over the last couple years. When he's not lapping the park or traveling, you'll probably find Dean down at Whistler's Bounce, creating new ways to spin and defy physics. Dean's trampoline background and understanding of movement have led him to develop some of the most unique tricks in the game. Spins, flips, corks... you name it, he'll try it. Dean not only competes on the Big Air circuit, but has filmed for Whistler Blackcomb's Magnetic
