The Next Generation of Utah Snowboarders
on April 22, 2011
Utah has always been synonymous with winter sports and particularly the greatest snow on earth. However, all of this great snow also breeds incredible athletes. Jeremy Jones, J.P. Walker, and Aaron Biittner were all raised here along the Wasatch Front. Utah has also been the home base for many more snowboarders looking to hone their skills in the backcountry and steep terrain. Among this transplant group is Mark Frank Montoya, Seth Huot, Bjorn Leines and Dan Brisse. Now the second generation is coming up with incredible terrain parks to hone their skills in. Parks that world competition are battled on among the elite of snowboarding. This is the world where Park City native, Seamus O’Connor will be setting the standard for future generations.
To help ‘kick-start- Seamus’ adventures his film company has set up a Kickstarter account that needs funding to see this vision come about. If you’re interested in his story, please visit: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/illthinking/lucky-enough
