Unlike many young action sports athletes of today, Sean Pettit didn’t burst onto the scene - he’s been there. At the tender age of 11, he began skiing at a professional level. Two years later, the then thirteen year old made a decision that skiing was a definite career. Quietly honing his skills at Whistler-Blackcomb for years, Sean became recognized years ago by companies like K2 and Oakley while he was still in his formative years.
Now officially an adult, Sean has already recorded some major wins in the world of skiing. Even though 2010 brought with it a solid part in MSP's film The Way I See It, a second-place finish in the Red Bull Linecatcher and also bragging rights as the Red Bull Cold Rush Champ, he doesn't plan on letting up and has even bigger plans for 2011 that kicked off with a win just two weeks into the year at Red Bull Linecatcher in January.
A broken thumb sidetracked him for most of February but he is back skiing and has his eyes set on putting together yet another solid part for MSP and to regain his crown at Red Bull Cold Rush, this year taking place in its new home in Silverton, Colorado, March 14th to 18th.
