Care Less, Do More. – E12 – Mark Abma

Mark Abma, born in Langley, B.C. not exactly a town where skiers are born, has been a professional skier for 23 years. His career started out as a freestyle skier and he got in with the Japanese Magazines to do paid photo shoots. They eventually invited him to go to Japan for his first big air comp when he was 19 years old where he competed against Eric Pollard, Mike Nick and others. Since then, he’s competed in slopestyle, skier cross and half pipe which eventually led him to filming with Poor Boys Productions and Matchstick Productions for countless years winning best male performance, best natural air and best powder. These days, Abma is still filming with MSP and keeps himself busy with side projects from rebuilding old snow cats to amazing and inspiring unconventional and funky construction projects..

Where did I get the name Care Less, Do More? It’s a thought that I have often meaning care less about what people think of you, about the noise, about the chirping on social media and just do more. Get outside, put your phones down and do more. 

Anon – Look cool, see better. Anon helmets and goggles are the perfect pair for your skull this skiing and riding season. They are sleek, stylish, and lightweight with the durability you would expect as part of the Burton family. 

Arcteryx – No matter how you try to pronounce it, Arcteryx means excellence. Born in and for the Coast Mountains of BC, their apparel was truly built to test all conditions the outdoors can throw at you. It’s this Mountain Effect that has produced some of the toughest most versatile apparel for your next outdoor expedition.

Palisades Tahoe – One iconic destination, two distinctly different mountains now connected and offering over 6,000 skiable acres. Come for California’s largest ski resort, stay for the gnar. 

Peak Skis – If you thought there were enough skis already on the market you were wrong. There’s room for new skis on the block when they bring something new to offer and that’s what Peak Skis are doing. Bode Miller incorporates 30 years of design acumen into designing skis with the knowledge that great skis aren’t tough to ski on, great skis are fun to ski on!
