Frank Martin

October 1, 2018

Raised in the foothills of the White Mountains in Maine, Frank has spent most of his life outdoors and when snowboarding first hit the scene, he had his heart set riding. Influenced by a small group of snowboarders at both Black Mountain and Sunday River resorts, Frank furthered his development attending training at Carrabassett Valley Academy at Sugarloaf, Maine where he was inspired by riders/coaches like Eric Webster, Jeremy Jones, Ross Powers, and Seth Wescott. Over the years, Frank has competed as a Snowboard Cross (SBX) athlete in multiple tours including the US Grand Prix, Hole Shot, Revolution, Jeep King of the Mountain, Swatch, and several other World Cup/Olympic Qualifiers. In addition to snowboarding, Frank is an avid mountaineer and climber with summits all over the US, Europe, and Africa and lives in Skykomish, WA.</p><p>AASI Level 1, AIARE Level 1 (Avalanche), USSA Freestyle Accreditation
