words: T. Bird
Jake Blauvelt cut his teeth on the cold, hard slopes at one of New England’s premier bastions of talent, Stowe Mountain in Vermont. Coming up through the contest scene, the culmination of his young career came with a US Open slopestyle title. It was then that Jake made the tough transition to riding pow for a living, and under the tutelage of then Forum teammate and living legend Devon Walsh, he emerged from the high alpine of Whistler, BC as a master of his domain. Since then, Jake has become somewhat of a North American Nicolas Müller, seeking out natural terrain that caters to his fluid yet powerful style of riding and last year while filming for “Resolution,” Jake put on a show. Watch his full part right here and witness poetry in motion in the form of an east coaster gone west. This is Jake Blauvelt’s 2015/2016 winter offering and it’s unreal.
