For the past twenty years, riders and skiers have received national exposure through their involvement in slopestyle events, as well as extensive coverage in print and video publications. Devun Walsh, Kevin Sansalone, Roberta Rodgers and Wayne Wong all started out on Mt. Seymour and have been major influences in the progression of skiing and snowboarding.

Development Team members receive support and guidance towards building an industry-standard portfolio and attend workshops hosted by professional riders both on the slopes and in the classroom. In addition, the program will facilitate photo and film shoots to use in portfolio development, building a strong base for sponsorship submissions, as well as feature Development Team members on Mt. Seymour’s website, social media channels and blog.
