Not many teenage slopestyle skiers can boast nearly a dozen years of backcountry experience. But Logan Pehota, under the wing of his father, big-mountain pioneer Eric Pehota, spent his childhood alpine racing, ski touring and notching big lines near his home in Pemberton, B.C. A burgeoning big-mountain competitor, Pehota is now focusing on slopestyle, aiming for the bright lights that come with major contests and hopefully, one day, the Olympics.
Aside from the dream of competitive prestige, Pehota also wants to remain a well-rounded talent. His accumen in the backcountry was first put under the microscope in his first major film appearance, MSP's "Superheroes of Stoke" (2012) and then "Poor Boyz Productions' "Tracing Skylines" (2013) – and we'd say he passed. Watch out for him in major comps and mega movie projects in the years to come.
