Mark takes a lighthearted approach to even the heaviest lines. On far-flung adventures in the high alpine alongside the world’s best riders, Mark is the guy who takes the pressure off, either by dropping first and slaying that spine-covered AK face or cracking the perfectly-timed joke that slices through the tension. But make no mistake, he puts 100-percent into his riding. Through a blend of technical skill, full-throttle charging, and just being himself, Mark stands squarely among snowboarding’s hardcore elite.
