To qualify for the USASA 2014 National Championships, Manson earned multiple first and second place awards in Slopestyle and BoarderCross throughout 2014.
An avid snowboarder since age 3, this is Manson’s first year on a competitive team. He is coached by Tommy Burke and Brady Gunsch.
When asked what the secret to his first season’s success was, Manson said, “Hard work, dedication, excellent coaches, like Brady and Tommy, and support from local sponsors.”
Manson is a seventh grader at Pleasant Grove Middle School in Rescue.
