Riley Leboe is a BC, born and bred skier living in Squamish. Riley's one of those people that is as friendly and genuine as he is a kick ass skier. In this episode we chat with Riley about the upcoming web series he's working on with fellow Sea to Sky residents Mike Henituik, Matt Margetts and Joe Shuster. Their goal is to strike while the fire is hot and release the episodes while they are still current. They think its much better than sitting on the footage for months and months then releasing it in the fall with the rest of the flicks at ski movie season.
Riley also just got back from building the slopestyle course for the upcoming Red Bull Cold Rush event in Revelstoke, which he will be competing in. Riley also shares with us about his off-hill hobbies like crab fishing in nearby Howe Sound, the occasional hunting trip, his tastes in music and much more.

Sunny skies and spring-like conditions welcomed the competition, with athletes in all categories holding nothing back to secure the season’s coveted first points. Competition went down on the Port del Rat face, which proved the perfect playground for athletes to unleash their tricks. Here’s what happened: Ski Women: Hedvig Wessel’s enormous and flawless backflip off a cliff put her on top of
