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.

From the so-called “Church of Doom” (we don’t know why they call it that) to the infamous “booze cruise” boats that ship partiers from the Finnish city to Stockholm, Sweden, the sweet photo reflected the core of who Eero is…and where he’s from. And some Oakley love, of course.

    The progression continues. And as always, Oakley is at the forefront. O chargers Henrik Harlaut and Phil Casabon displayed it to the fullest in the latest episode of the B&E Show. The fifth edition, entitled “the Medicine,” has our two shredders romping through Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Utah and Colorado – unveiling urban tranny’s and spots that have been mostly untouched by the skiing world to express their creativity. With the possibility of free skiing at the Olympics looming, the crew sees this as a “movement, inspired, as a cure to skiing’s future in it’s purest form…that may change a lot of the perception and clientele that will be brought upon the sport.”
