Undoubtedly one of the biggest names in freeskiing, Simon Dumont began to make a name for himself at the age of 15. Just two years later he won his first Winter X Games Gold Medal and has remained one of the most fierce and talented competitors the sport has seen. A career wrought with so much competitive success has not come without its obstacles. Simon has suffered shattered ankles, a broken pelvis and collarbone, and a ruptured spleen, among countless other less severe injuries. Despite all the rehab and rebuilding of his body, nothing has been able to keep Simon off his skis for long or scare him into dialing back his degree of commitment.
His skill in the park is matched by his prowess in the backcountry. He’s regularly putting together stunning video edits and trying to present the sport in some new, stunning way. Beyond the accolades and internal drive, Simon also possesses a unique style in his skiing that continues to inspire and push his peers and up-and-coming talents, and the likelihood is he’ll continue to do so for many years to come.
