      Granite stater Chas Guldemond moved to Lake Tahoe in 2005 to seriously pursue professional snowboarding. “After a lot of hitchhiking to the mountain, training everyday and living off of PBJ’s and eggs” he took second at the 2006 U.S. Open. After that, it all fell into place. He sealed his spot as one of slopestyle's biggest names in 2009 after he won the Burton U.S. Open, took the Global Open Tour overall and notched second in the World Snowboard Tour overall slopestyle standings.  

      The 2012 winter saw Guldemond become the TTR World Champion after taking a win at the Burton Canadian Open and claiming yet another Sprint U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix title.

      The rampage continued in 2013, and he starting off with a second at the Breckenridge Dew Tour in December and a solid win at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain in January. Then he placed fourth at X Games Tignes and third at the Burton U.S. Open to close off a strong season.

      Guldemond came into the 2014 season as a favorite to represent snowboarding slopestyle in its Olympic debut in Sochi. A top American finish at the Dew Tour and a third-place finish at the U.S. Sprint Grand Prix at Mammoth secured his ticket to Sochi, where he finished fifteenth in the historic slopestyle debut.

      FIRST TRACKS
      It all started in New Hampshire for Guldemond, who worked side jobs to pay for passes and equipment until he started earning prize money. He has had seven healthy seasons and won almost every major event in snowboarding. Guldemond’s goals through snowboarding are “to put a positive impact on the youth, showing them if you put your mind to something, you can accomplish your dreams.”

      OFF THE SNOW
      It's pretty simple; when he’s not snowboarding, Guldemond is riding dirt bikes or skateboarding. He also sits on the World Snowboard Tour board as an athlete representative, working to better the sport.
