Hall of Fame Nominee
As the winner of 42 World Cup Podiums a majority were within the United States, and a Three Timeaerial and overall World Freestyle Champion, John’s results alone more than prove his worthiness of induction into the USSSHOF. Yes he is a Canadian but his prowess within the US boundries was above and beyond incredible and in that era we competed against each other and not as individual nations but as a group of competitors. Freestyle is an American sport and John dominated this. John was an early pioneer and innovator of Freestyle Skiing. John brought a strength and consistency that allowed him to win and win and win. He also is a very humble yet giving man. He was a coach and mentor to many up and coming Freestyle Skiers. John was always willing to help train, build jumps, guide the preparation of Ballet slopes and make suggestions that were always met with a positive. His strength in Aerials brought a new and exciting era to the aerial events.A gentleman, filmmaker, musician, stuntman, model and most of all James Bond stunt double for some of the most iconic Bond footage ever. John is truly deserving of induction into the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame on many different levels, but primarily as a fixture in the American sport of Freestyle Skiing.
