  • Jake Sakson grew up skiing and snowboarding but when he discovered telemark skiing in 2007, obsession set in. In 2012 his 3rd place finish at the Freeskiing World Tour in Kirkwood made him the first telemark skier to podium in a Freeskiing World Tour event and take home the legendary Sickbird award. While Jake also has an impressive list of finishes on the Telemark Freeskiing Circuit and enjoys competing, it is the solitude of the mountains and untracked lines that call him loudest. While true solitude can only be found when there are no cameras around, Jake spends part of his winter filming with the backcountry film company Powderwhore and has had stand out segments for the past 3 years. Jake primarily spends his summers studying tai chi but is also an avid mountain biker and rock climber. Look for Jake in upcoming Freeride World Tour events or on top of some mountain somewhere.
