OUR RIDERS AND SKIERS
THE GILSON RIDERS
I grew up in Modesto, CA only a couple hours from some of the most beautiful terrain in CA. I developed a love for snowboarding after watching Johnny Tsunami. I moved to Lake Tahoe, CA shortly after college and fell in love with park riding!

Allie MontgomeryAlbuquerque, NM
I grew up snow sliding the east coast, last 9 years in Vail, CO, and now in Whitefish, MT. When I’m not snowboarding you can find me snowboarding. My favorite board is the Gilson Duel. It handles everything I put it through with ease.
I'm 30 years from Big Bear City, California where I've been riding since I was 15 years old. You can can find me at Bear raking the features. I do what I can on snowboard. Add me on insta!
Brandan MonahanBig Bear City, CA
My name is Jordan Thibault. Growing up snowboarding has been my escape but also has become the greatest life lesson. I have learned to never let fears become my limitations. If I’m not riding a snowboard, skating or dirt biking, I’m a family man at home taking care of my daughter and my lady.
TboBear Mountain, CA
My snowboard base is Red Lodge Mountain in my home state of Montana. I often venture out to board new mountains all over, and I enjoy meeting random shredders while I'm out. I'm turn into a workaholic when I'm not boarding, hiking, or riding motorcycles.
Ire FlanaganRed Lodge, MT
I was born and raised in Bozeman, MT so I've been fortunate to have amazing mountains in my backyard. I'm proud to call Big Sky my home mountain. When I’m not on the mountain you can find me cooking and riding the streets of Bozeman!
Brian QuattrocchiBig Sky, MT
The past couple years I've been fortunate enough to Tour with Gilson and spend my winters meeting new people and riding the best mountains in the country! When I’m not riding you can find me working on my car or at the local skatepark!

I grew up adventuring in the mountains of northern New Mexico. I am currently a sophomore at Colorado State University. I have loved skiing since I was little, especially skiing park and rails. I plan to keep having fun pursuing the sport and progressing!
Marion BalsamoLlano, NM
Born and raised in PA; you can catch me lapping the park. I bounced around Pocono resorts until falling in love with Big Boulder Park, which turned into my 2nd home. Off the hill I’m city slicking in Philly earning my degree at Temple University.
Justin OttPhiladelphia, PA
Grew up skiing in PA. Moved to Colorado straight out of high school and have been here since. Some would call me a bum, I wouldn’t argue with that. Street skiing is my passion.

Ian OsbyBreckenridge, CO
Born and raised in Bend, Oregon - Mt. Bachelor is only 20 Minutes from my doorstep. I’m a junior in an online high school which gives me flexibility to travel all over to compete and train with all my buddies. I’m looking to progress my skills to pursue a professional skiing career.

I’m from Geneva, Switzerland but am currently settled across the pond in Brooklyn, NY. My life is a mix of the corporate grind, the warehouse techno scene, and the nomadic hustle to get on hill or in the snowy NYC streets whenever I can.
