I remember first meeting Julien Lopez in Utah for the first time a few years back. At the time, he was new on the freeskiing circuit and his french buddies were getting all the fame, interviews, and victories. In a few short years, all that has changed. He was 5th on both freeskiing tours last year with a victory in Russia and in 09′ he took the prestigious event at Snowbird. Dazzling crowds wherever he skis with fluidity, big airs, creative lines and of course, backflips off of everything, he is certainly a crowd favorite at every stop. He competed in the x-games way back when and now he travels the world entering freeski competitions, shooting videos and being a fun loving, hard charging party animal spreading his brand of good cheer and passion for his sport across the world. I always look forward to catching up with him and i couldn’t be happier for his success.
