Known for breaking records and going big in the process, Simon Dumont pushes the envelope every time he drops in. Looked to as a leader in the world of freeskiing, Simon used his background in gymnastics to become a spectacular aerialist on two planks. Perhaps his most jaw-dropping feat was the world record air at his home mountain of Sunday River, where in 2008 he launched 35.5 feet out of a 38-foot-tall quarter pipe, throwing a corked 900 tail grab to boot.
Add in more victories and awards than any other freeskier, including eight Winter X Games medals so far, and you’ll start to see what Simon is capable of -- thrilling airs and progressive moves. He’s a prodigy moving confidently into his prime, and no possibility is off limits.
Simon’s latest goal? With halfpipe skiing newly added to the roster for the 2014 Winter Olympics, he’s looking toward earning a spot on the U.S. national team.
