Tweet Your Face Off WIth Simon Dumont

@SimonDumont06 talks to us about Tiger Woods. Well, not really, but that got your attention didn’t it? Grab a hot dog, put on some De La Soul and enjoy this #TYFO session with the Man, the myth, THE Simon Dumont

Bio: Simon Dumont is one of the best and most well known skiers in the world. Simple as that. At the age of 15 he made his X Games debut. Two years later he won his first of back-to-back gold medals in the superpipe at X. A month after winning his second superpipe gold, Simon was being towed into a 100-foot jump in Park City. He hit the kicker with way too much speed and overshot the landing by 80 feet fracturing his pelvis and rupturing his spleen in the process. Despite the gruesome injuries, Simon was back skiing 2 months later and would earn a bronze medal in superpipe the following year at X. In April of 2008, Dumont set the current world record for height out of a quarterpipe when he stomped a 35.5 foot cork 900 tail grab. This weekend (March 25-27) Simon will be on the slopes at Sunday River in Maine for the second annual Dumont Cup, a pro/am comp where Simon himself designs the course.
