Bio

Sean Pettit arrived to professional skiing early (first sponsored by Oakley at 11) and hasn’t looked back. Having grown up in Whistler, skiing alongside his brother, Callum, and friend, Kye Petersen, he honed his skills skiing big mountains and some of the best backcountry terrain in the region.

Today, Pettit is one of the most popular and renowned big-mountain skiers in the world, having starred in films, appeared on countless magazine covers, won most every major award available and won the Red Bull Cold Rush two years in a row – and he’s still just 21. The legend continues to grow.
