SnowBrains |

We all know SImon Dumont is sick and that’s he’s one of the best, but we don’t know much about his story.  This video is a mini documentary that pries into the life of Simon Dumont.  It’s always interesting to get an inside view of a professional athlete’s life.  Starting out as a pro skier at 14?  Crazy.

Professional skier Simon Dumont has dedicated his life to leading the progression of freeskiing. This collection documents his huge successes and setbacks from when he first started competing at age 14, to wining 10 X Games medals and setting a new 35.5-foot high world record quarterpipe air, to devastating injuries sustained along the way including overshooting a 100-foot jump in Park City. With top podium finishes, world records, and creative successes like the Red Bull Cubed Private Halfpipe session, Simon has a new target in his sights this winter—the 2014 Winter Olympics—the inaugural Olympics for freeskiing halfipe and slopestyle.
