Canada, 51 years old

Mike Douglas, aka the "Godfather of Freesking," has impacted the sport like nobody else. Douglas grew up skiing moguls and was a member of the New Canadian Air Force. He is credited with helping to create the first ever twin tip ski, which eventually became the Salomon 1080. Today you’ll find Mike creating the massively popular web series Salomon Freeski TV with his company Switchback Entertainment.
