McMORRIS & McMORRIS
To have one world-class snowboarder from Saskatchewan is pretty rare. But two? As the elder statesman of the McMorris brothers, Craig McMorris is a veteran of the Canadian snowboard scene after first stepping on a board at the young age of 11. Growing up in the prairies, Craig cut his teeth snowboarding at Saskatchewan’s Mission Ridge and later, making the long trips to the Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, AB to get a taste of big mountain riding.
Like any true older brother, Craig has been a mentor to his younger sibling over the years teaching Mark a few tricks along the way from 720’s to impressing the ladies. Craig McMorris ‘sends it’ at all times with a personality as big as the tricks he stomps. Whenever he's around, you know you're in for a good time! Craig’s whit and huge personality is aptly demonstrated in MTV’s McMorris & McMorris, which debuted in Canada in the fall of 2013. But, beyond the antics, on the hill Craig is all business. As one of Canada’s top competitive slopestyle snowboarders, he quickly earned himself a spot on the Canadian National Snowboard Team in 2012. Not only is Craig a natural on the mountain and in the spotlight on MTV, he has also been selected to be a host for all snowboarding events on CBC during the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Competing in some of the largest slopestyle events around the world, he’s backed by some of the biggest names in the snowboard industry including Burton, Oakley, DVS, Danger Straps, and Red Bull.
With Craig continually pushing himself both in the park and backcountry, we’re looking forward to seeing what surprises he has in store for the upcoming season and the hilarity that's sure to follow.
