Although Mark has experienced his fair share of injuries in recent years, after each one, he has come back stronger, exemplifying his strength, courage and passion for the sport of snowboarding. Following two significant injuries within two years of each other, Mark has won multiple events, including victories at world cup competitions, X Games, US Open and his second consecutive Olympic bronze medal in slopestyle.

Craig McMorris

Craig McMorris

  • Scored opening segment of 2016 ManBoys Movie
  • Snowboard analyst for CBC during 2014 Olympics
  • Commentator for X Games and other major action sports events
  • Former Canadian National Team Slopestyle competitor

Craig McMorris may have been raised in the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada, but he's become a veteran of the Canadian snowboard scene after first stepping onto a board at the age of 11. Craig sends it at all times, with a personality as big as the tricks he stomps. He's an all-around rider, known as much for his park skills as his backcountry savviness.

A former Canadian National Team member for slopestyle, Craig switched gears in 2014 to focus on broadcasting. He worked as a snowboard analyst and commentator for CBC during the 2014 Winter Olympic Games and then for ESPN as an on-air personality during X Games. "I'm really passionate about snowboarding. I know the tricks, I know everyone who's competing," Craig says. "That makes it easy to talk about on air."

Now based out of Whistler, British Columbia, Craig continues to appear on-screen on his snowboard, too. Case in point: His opening segment of the 2016 ManBoys movie, he says, is one of this proudest achievements.
