Team Manager/Pro Skier - West Hartford C.T.
I grew up skiing variable conditions on the east coast. This led me to focus on park and street skiing. When I was younger I definitely was a park rat. While this is still a large part of my skiing style, moving west to Colorado and traveling to film has expanded my skiing to the backcountry. I still have a lot of park / street riding left in me, but I really look forward to dedicating more time to pow and big mountain.
Really anytime I can have my skis on my feet it is a blessing. I enjoy all aspects of skiing, bumps, pow, groomers, park, and street. If you get tired with one discipline within skiing there’s always ways to change things up!
I’m really stoked to be on board with Deviation for multiple reasons. I am excited for a new level of involvement with a sponsor that I have not really had before. I also think it is really cool Deviation offers fully customizable skis and snowboards. Flex, Graphics, different waste widths, etc,  allow you to truly make each product your own. I am looking forward to growing with this brand and learning more in depth about the process of building skis.

Pro Skier - Mechanicsburg P.A.

I live full-time in an RV traveling all over North America skiing. I started skiing when I was 14 years old. I grew up in Pennsylvania and lived just 12 minutes from my home resort, RoundTop Mountain Resort. Skied EVERYDAY my home resort was open. I was a huge park rat growing up, and still am, just love lappin’ parks and filming with friends.  Since I started living on the road and spending most of my time on the west coast, I have expanded into street skiing and powder skiing. Really any day with skis on my feet surrounded by good friends is a good day.

Pro Skier - Camp Hill P.A.

I am a 19 year old skier from Camp Hill Pennsylvania, currently living in Sandy Oregon. I ski
year round as well as travel a lot and film with my friends. I’ve been skiing since I was 3 and I
love it. The feeling you get when you hit a jump or grind a rail is insane like no other. When I
was 18 during my senior year I went to Windells Academy, and that was a dream come true to
be able to ski everyday at Mt Hood. But my heart will always belong on the east coast.

Ari Delashmutt

Pro Skier - Planet Earth

My name is Ari and I’m a multisport maven and a content generation powerhouse. I’ve spent my life chasing progression in the sports that I love, and telling those stories to the world. I grew up skiing which turned into a full-fledged lifestyle, spending 150 days a year on snow, hitting the biggest jumps I could find and enjoying my time in the air. I learned to highline in 2014 and that took over my life, leading me to walk across the world’s longest highline (6,700′ long!) and rigging lines all over the world. Then paragliding took over my life and has led me to fly more than a thousand hours in the sky, in 12 countries on 5 continents. Now I host a podcast, write articles for magazines, make adventure travel films for my sponsors, run my own youtube channel and do live speaking events – all while trying to ski, fly and highline as much as possible. It’s a crazy and blessed life indeed!

Max Test

Max Test

Pro Snowboarder - Portland O.R.

My name is Max Test, I’m from Portland Oregon and I’ve grown up riding Mount Hood. I started skating when I was pretty young and shortly after picked up snowboarding. Skating and snowboarding has lead me to the most amazing people and allowed me to spend so much time in some incredible places. Not to mention how much I love flying through the air and taking turns down the mountain. When I was 13 I joined the Mt. Hood Meadows freeride team where I started riding with Kyle Skutch, he coached me for 3 season and played a huge role in how I got involved with Deviation as well as turning me into the snowboarder I am today. Deviation has given me so much support and I Couldn’t be more stoked to ride their boards!
