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.

    Fact: Star Snowboarders don’t play H.O.R.S.E. At least Oakley’s Norwegian Ripper Torstein Horgmo doesn’t. He’s all business. So business, in fact, that when he wants to throw down head-to-head in friendly competition, he calls the game ‘In Your Face’ (we’ll make an acronym of it…I.Y.F.). He did just that with Oakley family member Halldor Helgason recently. And he has the video to prove it. There’s some sick sh** up in there.

    No one’s ever seen anything like it. Last weekend, a secret, mysterious photoshoot was rumored by those in the industry to have went down at Squaw Valley…one unlike any other in history. And they were right. Enter Oakley Freeski star Simon Dumont. The brainchild of O’s Ripper, the ‘Cubed Pipe’ at Squaw was six years in the making. Built through the talents of Oakley-sponsored Snowpark Technologies, and supported by Red Bull. Simon’s dream finally came into fruition. With a whole lot of planning – and a little bit of luck, that is. Simon threw down for the buzz-surrounded shoot – and some sick images were the obvious result.
