Bryn "Brynja" Clingwall has been in Revelstoke since it was just called 'Revel'. Then he brought the 'stoke'. Growing mad crops in the now underwater Greenslide area awaiting patiently until the day snowboards were invented. Bryn travels the world representing Free Spirit Sports in international freeride competitions, the FWQ (look it up, show up, cheer us on). As one of the founding members of the FSS team, Bryn complains and whines all the time that you should snowboard more. Yes. You. An elusive creature, you will never find him drawing attention to himself doing back-to-back laps under the chair. Proud to represent FSS in competition and at your local brewery, find him on the hill and challenge him to a race.

I live at home with my Mom, Dad, sister and Dog.
When I am not snowboarding you can find me snuggling in bed with my Dog,
playing with my friends and family and asking my parents if I can play video games.
Snowboarding has taught me how to slide sideways, face plant occasionally and to
get back up after your knocked down.
My name is Anouk Julien, newest member of the FSS team and I am 12 years old. I am born and raised in Revelstoke and my favourite thing to do is skiing. I started when I was 3 years old and you can find me in the trees and deep powder. My goal this season is to keep my skills sharp and have fun. If you see me at the hill… catch me if you can!!!
You can find Alex Bell shredding all over the mountain from chutes to pillow lines, to booters in the park and slack country, to flyin down Chutes on a sunny day! Alex never disappoints when he's locked into his skis. He began skiing for FSS at age 16 and his skiing tells you why.

Nick moved Revelstoke in 2011 and quickly fell in love with the small town and big mountains. You can find Nick far out in the backcountry, accessed by his sled, riding steep and deep lines, dropping cliffs and ripping couloirs. Nick plans to go even bigger this year and ride some natural lines he’s had his eye on.
