Matt Margetts /  Vancouver, BC Pro halfpipe & slopestyle skier

Originally hailing from the pleasure dome of a town that is Penticton, BC, Canada, Marg, as he’s known to virtually everyone around him, spent his youth having fun on nearby Skaha Lake in the summer while taking care of business on the slopes of neighbouring Apex Mountain in the winter.

Since the wetness behind his ears began, Margetts has been one to watch, in the pages of ski magazines all over the world, to exciting segments in Theory-3, Rage, Voleurz and Poor Boyz films, to appearances on the grandest stage of them all at X Games. And if it has snow on it (or not), Margetts can ski it, and as well as anyone. Although commonly known as a halfpipe skier, he has put down numerous head-turning performances in elite slopestyle contests and can walk just as tall both in the backcountry and on or around street rails.

Combine all of this with Margetts’ infectious happy-go-lucky personality, A+ brand of humour and never-ending smile, and you have exactly what everyone always expected him to become, an awe-inspiring and accomplished character and athlete who will be around for many, many years to come. – Jeff Schmuck, Newschoolers.com
