Hall of Fame Nominee
As an athlete and dynamic spokesperson for his sport, Maine’s Seth Wescott brought broad recognition to his sport as a rare back-to-back Olympic snowboard champion.
Born in North Carolina, Wescott grew up in New England starting snowboarding at age 10. It was his time at Carrabassett Valley Academy in Sugarloaf, Maine that set his focus as an athlete – studying and competing alongside athlete stars like Bode Miller, Kirsten Clark, Emily Cook and snowboarder Jeff Greenwood. In his career he won four X Games medals including a gold, and four World Championship medals with one gold. But his claim to fame came when he won the debut of snowboard cross at the 2006 Olympics in Torino, then backed it up with a second gold in 2010 at Vancouver. Today he remains active in the sport as a co-owner of Winterstick, and also picked up wins in the fabled Mt. Baker banked slalom in 2019 and 2020.
