#63 – Cooper and Jackson Bathgate w/ Derek Foose
Cooper and Jackson Bathgate are leading the next generation of competition free skiers. The 17 year old twins from Whistler are products of the Whistler Freeride Club program which was started in the early 2000’s by Head Coach, Derek Foose.
All three of them came by the studio to talk about growing up in a mountain town, developing their skills in the Whistler Freeride Club and trying to retain a normal life while travelling and competing in the Junior Freeride circuit. Of course I also tease them a bit about bunk beds and other twin related stereotypes.
Cooper and Jackson Bathgate are the real deal so remember their names. You’re going to hear them a lot in the near future.
