      Granite stater Chas Guldemond moved to Lake Tahoe in 2005 to seriously pursue professional snowboarding. “After a lot of hitchhiking to the mountain, training everyday and living off of PBJ’s and eggs” he took second at the 2006 U.S. Open. After that, it all fell into place. In 2009 he won the Burton U.S. Open, took the Global Open Tour overall and notched second in the World Snowboard Tour overall slopestyle standings to become one of slopestyle's biggest names.  

      The 2012 winter saw Guldemond become the TTR World Champion, while he also took a win at the Burton Canadian Open and yet another Sprint U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix title.

      Guldemond made some noise in 2013, starting off with a second at the Breckenridge Dew Tour in December and a solid win at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain in January. Then he placed fourth at X Games Tignes and third at the Burton U.S. Open to close off a strong season.

      CHAS SAYS
      This season was another good year for the books. I started off strong with a win at the Copper Grand Prix and a few good podium finishes. I had also set a lot of training goals, because I know how important it is going to be that I focus on training my tricks going into the 2014 Olympics. I changed my focus a bit when it came to my training. I have done things the same way for about eight years, so it was awesome to change it up and try some new things. I was able to learn a few really awesome new tricks, which makes me even more stoked to continue training through to the Olympics.

      FIRST TRACKS
      It all started in New Hampshire for Guldemond, who paid his own way for passes and equipment by working side jobs until his practice started to pay off in the form of prize money. He has had seven healthy seasons and won almost every major event in snowboarding. Guldemond’s goals through snowboarding are “to put a positive impact on the youth, showing them if you put your mind to something, you can accomplish your dreams.”

      OFF THE SNOW
      It's pretty simple; when he’s not snowboarding Guldemond is riding dirt bikes or skateboarding.
