GearHub Sponsored Athletes

GearHub is proud to sponsor and support a variety of shredders, from talented local kids to professional athletes. Here's a bit about them:

 

Micah Morris

Micah Morris

 

Micah Morris grew up in Fernie, BC competing in ski racing, mountain biking and big mountain skiing.

She now lives in Revelstoke, BC where she works as a mountain bike guide for Wandering Wheels and serves at the Craft Bier Haus.

She has eased out of competitive skiing but still races some Enduro mountain bike races and is an ambassador for Juliana Mountain Bikes. In the winter she skis at the resort and pushes her self to learn and practice skiing safely in the backcountry. She wants to use her talent to inspire women in sport and pass along to local youth her passion and love for the mountains.

This year Micah is stoked to be riding the K2 Mindbender 116 Cs as part of her backcountry touring set up!

In his 26 year skiing career, he has earned many accolades, including: Freeskiing World Tour competitor 2010-2012, Freeride World Tour competitor 2013, Monster Enemy Lines competitor (Fernie Alpine Resort) 2013-2014 (2014 7th Place), Fernie Freestyle Ski Club 2008-2018 Coach, Head Coach Freestyle Ski Club 2015-2018.

When he’s not skiing, Ben works as a Journeyman Cabinet Maker, and enjoys biking, climbing, all sports, and building stuff!

This season Ben hopes to ski a line on the North end of Mt Hosmer that he’s had his eye on for a while!

 

 

Dale Vasey

Dale Vasey

Dale has been skiing in Fernie since the age of 2, already holding onto the Mighty Moose platter himself after the first few runs of his life. His passion for the sport hasn’t faded since.

This year, Dale is travelling around western Canada for the IFSA (big mountain) and CFSA (slopestyle) competition season. He’s excited to gain knowledge about the nature of the sport, explore the backcountry, see old friends, make new ones, and have some fun.

Along with some likeminded friends, Dale has started making ski movies in a collective called Drive Threw. Click here to check them out on instagram.

During the off season, Dale enjoys skateboarding, mountain biking, and cliff jumping.

 

Elek Wenzlawe
