NAME: Cade Robinson
WHAT IS THE EVENT YOU ARE BEST KNOWN FOR? Slopestyle Skiing.
WHAT OTHER EVENT/S DO YOU PARTICIPATE IN? Big-Air, Big-Mountain, Moguls, Ski-X, X-country.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUSTRALIAN RESORT AND WHY? Perisher, NSW. I enjoy Perisher as it has a wide variety of terrain and the parks are some of the best in the world. Also many of my mates ride Perisher with me.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE INTERNATIONAL RESORT AND WHY? Hakuba, Japan. I enjoy Hakuba as its one of the best pow skiing resorts in the world. There are many fun lines nestled around the 11 resorts in the Hakuba valley and there is always fresh snow to be found.
DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER SPONSORS? IF SO, TELL US ABOUT THEM! N/a
WHAT IS YOUR FUNNIEST STACK STORY? My mate, Cameron Waddle and I were at Thredbo for a big-air comp. Between event runs we decided to lap Anton’s Park. We decided to front flip together over a jump ‘cause we thought it would be fun (and to impress a group of girls we thought were watching us). We didn’t impress anyone - Cameron broke his coller bone & I smashed my face & knocked myself out. That was the end of the event for us that day and the end of the season for Cameron.
WHEN DID YOU START SKIING? I started skiing when I was three years old. I used to cry when mum dropped me off at mini mites.
