Travis Rice World Class Snowboarder and STOKED Supporter
The first time STOKED was introduced to Travis Rice was back in 2011 when STOKED Founder, Steve Larosiliere went to Jackson Hole for a conference called GOAT. It was a Gathering of artists/athletes and technologists. At this event, there were all sorts of influential people in and around the snowsports industry… one of them was Travis Rice. Upon hearing about our mission and vision, he jumped on as a supporter and has been ever since.
If you don’t know Travis Rice, he is probably one of the most prolific snowboarders of our generation. He’s produced and starred in such snowboard films like Art of Flight, Depth Perception, and Fourth Phase. He’s revolutionized how snowboard films are made and created. He’s also an entrepreneur and when he had an art gallery in Jackson Hole that featured amazing action sports artists and photographers, he donated a percentage of profits to STOKED along with Protect Our Winters.
Since closing down his art gallery, Travis has supported us an an Igniter and promoted our fundraising campaigns online to his 1 million+ social media following. He even came to a snowboard day one time to our mountain in southern California, Snow Summit. We still remember that day and it was such a treat to have him visit and be a mentor for our kids.
