Nate Kern, Leslie Glenn, Banks Gilberti, Brett Esser, Arielle Gold, Keri Herman, Jake Black, James "Woodsy" Woods, Zach Black, Silvia Mittermueller, Rebecca "Possum" Torr, Asher Humphreys, Anna Segal, and Pat Goodnough talk about why they love Breckenridge, where they are from (New Zealand, Germany, the UK, Australia, etc), why they train here, what they think of the terrain parks, powder snowboarding, the lifestyle, and what they expect out of this new format of the Dew Tour Mountain Championships, coming to Breckenridge Dec.

Breckenridge has always had an amazing group of riders on their roster, and the 12/13 Breckenridge Pro Freeride Team is no different. Breck announced last week the members of their 12/13 team. Check out this video from the team talking about what they love about Breck and their thoughts on the upcoming Dew Tour.

The Breck Pro Team is an elite cadre of 26 ski and snowboard athletes who call Breck home and represent the team and resort with podium placements at competitions worldwide. 

Recognized as the top resort team in the ski industry today, the Breck Pro Team is comprised of some of the most exciting young talent in action sports. This year’s team features returning athletes such as two-time X Games Gold medalist Bobby Brown, top AFP overall world raking athletes Anna Segal and Keri Herman, former Olympic bronze medalist JJ Thomas, and Summit county native Eric Willett.

New to the team this year are athletes like the UK’s freeski big air and slopestyle star James Woods and 2012 Youth Olympic halfpipe and slopestyle silver medalist Arielle Gold. 

“Being on the Breck Freeride Team means I have my home mountain as my backbone of support through my career,” said Breck Pro Team rider Eric Willett.

“Breck is the mountain where I train, learn new tricks, and compete in competitions. Athletes from all over the world come to Breck to train every year; it’s definitely a privilege to have the best park in the world in my back yard. I was born and raised, started my career, married my wife – all here at Breck. Needless to say, I could not be more honored to be a part of the Breck Pro Team.”
