Sequence: Golden, British Columbia

Charlotte Moats — Jackson Hole, WY

She claims, "The Mountains are my office, when there is snow on them.

Chris Eby — Pemberton, BC
Eby has been skiing big mountain lines all over Canada and has made a name for himself with remarkable freeskiing in his second year with Warren Miller Entertainment. In this year's segment he agrees, "It definitely feels off the grid."

Jaime Pierre — Salt Lake City, UT
Escaping death is Pierre's middle name. Residing in Utah has allowed Jaime the endless opportunities to drop some of the biggest cliffs known to man. After setting the record for the largest cliff drop at 145 ft, Pierre decided that wasn't enough. This year he did the unimaginable by dropping 255ft in the Teton backcountry, shattering his previous record and most likely creating a record that will stick for quite sometime.

Martin Winkler — Innsbruck, Austria
The 24 year old Austrian started freeskiing the day his dad put him on skis, 22 years ago. He entered into the European freeskiing scene shortly there after with his own special style. Now he works together with the best European outdoor photographers to publish these moments. With two second place titles in the Arlberg Open Space Freeride Trophy and the Red Bull Adrenaline Rush he has proven himself as a competitive skier.[pagebreak]Sequence: US Freeskiing Open

TJ Schiller — Vernon, BC
With an amazing season this year including winning the US Freeskiing Open Big Air competition by throwing down a switch 1440. TJ set himself up as one of the most dangerous men in freeskiing. He defended his title and did it well, throwing something no one has landed yet in competition. "I feel the pressure but I really, really like it."

Simon Dumont — Bethel, ME
Dumont, considered a leader in the new competitive sport of freeskiing, is one of the best Superpipe riders in the world. His first year of competition, Simon won the Whistler Invitational Super Hit and finished fourth at the U.S. Open. In 2004, Dumont quickly soared to the top of the competition by winning gold in the Winter X-Games Superpipe, with a performance worthy enough to be featured on ESPN's "Top Ten Plays of the Week.

Andreas Hatveit — Sudndalen, Norway
Andreas used his versatile and technical freestyle abilities to place second at the World Skiing Invitational Superpipe in Whistler, BC, Canada, and fourth place in the FIS World Halfpipe Championships in Ruka, Finland.

Sammy Carlson — Portland, OR
Sammy Carlson took home second place in the 2006 US Freeskiing Open in the slopestyle event. He has been placing himself on the podium in several events these last few years as he continues to improve with new tricks in his arsenal.

Peter Olenick - Aspen/Snowmass
Peter, older brother and skiing partner to Michael, is a 21-year old student at Montana State University in Bozeman. Like his brother, Peter has been taking winters off from school to focus on his training. The training has paid off as this year was Peter's first appearance at the X-Games where he solidified as a true up-and-comer in the world of freeskiing.

John Spriggs — Vail, CO
At the ripe age of seventeen, John Spriggs is truly making a name for himself. Winning big competitions and throwing equally big tricks in both the pipe and park. Spriggs is not only following in the footsteps of his predecessors but is also helping to push them in the freeskiing world. He may be young, but he has been throwing g tricks for years now and will be for years to come. [pagebreak]Sequence: Backcountry Snowboard

Mads Jonsson — Hemsedal, Norway
Mads Jonsson is in his third year with Warren Miller Entertainment. He set the record for the longest jump, stomping a huge 180 and landing 187 feet from the takeoff. This year's segment gives us a taste of the backcountry that Mads and Freddie ripped last year and the scary lines that sometimes left them rag-dolling down the mountain.

With a multitude of SKI Magazine appearances and skiing for several film companies, not to mention her fifth Warren Miller movie Jenn has continued to show her presence in the ski industry. After spending ten years in Truckee, California, Jenn has made the move to Salt Lake City, Utah, and now understands why. After an amazing winter with tons of snow Jenn can be found skiing every inch that the Wasatch Mountains have to offer.

Julien Carr — Salt Lake City, UT
Racking up over 2,100 vertical feet in cliff drops is just one thing that Julien Carr accomplished last year in Utah. He has made a name for himself as one of the best freeskiers in the world and also as one of the top hucksters; putting himself out in the air with the world's best, Jaime Pierre. Carr does not think of himself as the rock star skier he is, but simply says "It's simple, I just love cliffs.

Jamey Parks - Salt Lake City, Utah
Jamey Parks grew up skiing and racing in Vermont at Mount Snow and Sugarbush. Before graduating from CU in 2000, Jamey spent two years racing in Steamboat Springs. Since college, Jamey has been living and skiing in Salt Lake City because of the awesome snow. After qualifying for the X-Games, Jamey was picked up by both Salomon and Scott. Recently, Jamey has been focusing more on photos and film and really enjoying his time in the backcountry as he searches for great turns, cliffs, and lines.

Jeremy Nobis - Park City, Utah
After Jeremy experienced a respectable, though unremarkable, career as an Olympian and World Cup racer, he quit ski racing at twenty-six. Now, at thirty-four, he is known as "The Icon" among freeriders in Europe and America. Jeremy has also been called "Psycho Nobi. As a skier, it was either full-throttle on or off. Top finishes at the World Extreme Championships (1996) and the X-Games (1999) landed Nobis on several magazine covers, a peak achievement for athletes in the freeskiing world. Consequently, filmmakers instantly recognized Nobis as a unique talent.

But ultimately, he got hooked on freestyle around age fourteen when his mother put him in a three-day camp that dedicated mornings to turns and jumps, and afternoons to trampoline work. "It was exactly what I liked best about skiing - jumping off cliffs," he says. Toby Dawson made his Olympic debut in Torino after missing out on the Salt Lake Games, and he won bronze behind Australia's Dale Begg-Smith and Finland's Mikko Rakkainen.
