HUGO HARRISSON
AGE: 28
HOMETOWN: Whistler, British Columbia
TITLE: Pro freeskier
HEIGHT: 5'10"
WEIGHT: 175 lbs.
YEARS IN THE BUSINESS: 6

SPECIALTY: Harrisson is known for stomping landings without falling (or even hip-checking), so that editors don't have to chop up his sequences. Until 2003, he hadn't taken a spill (while filming) in five years, making him a favorite with film companies.

BIG BREAK: As a dishwasher in Whistler, B.C., Harrisson couldn't afford airfare to big mountain competitions. Bar manager Mike Varrin "sponsored" him with a couple hundred bucks in 2000, and Harrisson won the IFSA world tour the next three years running.

TOOLBOX: He likes his Rossignol B4s beaten soft and with dulled edges. "I never tune them," he says. "They're better for landing big cliffs and shutting down speed in powder that way."
