There’s a longstanding tradition of halfpipe skiers from Canada, but it took until 2015 for a Canadian man to stand atop an X Games Superpipe podium. That man? Simon d’Artois aka Dart, the Whistler native with a bag of tricks so deep you’ll need an oxygen tank to find bottom. In just his second year at X, d’Artois dethroned halfpipe legend David Wise to take top prize and cement his place in history. After suffering an injury that kept him from defending his title, d’Artois is healthy and ready to roll into 2016-2017. First stop, Breck.
