For Pro Ride coach Alan Gautier, there's nothing like a Whistler powder day to get your stoke on. Alan is one of the most amped riders in Whistler and loves to ride with the crew on what has been named "Friday Funday" camp sessions. We asked Alan to answer some questions so you can get to know him a little better.
Q. If you could change one thing in snowboard design, what would it be?
I'd bring back the good old step-in bindings. Just kidding.
Q. Describe your first day ever snowboarding?
I was almost 9, I had my skiboot on! I could link my turn half way down my first run, I was hooked!!!
Q. Do you think snowboarding was well represented at the Olympics?
Not really. I think it's good for snowboarding to be there, but it doesn't represent what it is all about
