Recognized as one of the world’s most prominent backcountry freeskiers, Sean Pettit is an incredible athlete who is dedicated to investing in his own physical preparation and capacity. He’s been a part of our family for well over a decade and we have had the pleasure to witness the evolution of his professional skiing career, which started at the tender age of 12. We wanted to work again with Sean from the early days of our brand’s inception as we saw a true fit with our own athletic backgrounds and the drive to seek pleasure in our craft. After all, what are we training for?
Late in 2013, at the start of his ski season, Sean sustained an ankle injury that took him off the snow for most of the season. Facing a more serious injury for his first time, he knew he needed to focus and be disciplined in order to repair his damaged ankle. With physical therapy and strength and conditioning training throughout 2013 / 2014, Sean is now completely recovered and back on snow. Working closely with Damien Moroney, Sean has undergone a rigorous and well-developed rehabilitative and training program that has pushed him well over the line of recovery and significantly increased his overall strength.
An entrepreneur in his own right, Sean didn’t let his injury slow him down. He created his own video production company SuperProof Inc and just released his first feature film for the 2014 ski season called The Recruitment. The film is currently screening worldwide and available on iTunes.
