JJ Vinet

I am a freeskier based out of Revelstoke BC.

I grew up skiing in the Alberta prairies and slowly moved westward into the mountains.  My passion for exploring the mountains on my skis is what drives me. 

I have spent the last four years competing on the Freeskiing World Tour / Freeride World Qualifier series, shooting with professional photographers and working as a professional ski patroller. This is all in the pursuit of pushing myself to the next level.

I am passionate about seeing the world and meeting new friends along the way.
