Over the past 16 years, Seth Wescott – the “Boss of the Cross” – has become the most successful and decorated snowboard cross athlete in history. In 2010, after years of success at the World Cup and the X Games, he won his second consecutive Winter Games gold medal in snow sports, a first for an American male athlete.

When he's not competing, his favorite place to train is the Chugach Mountains in Alaska, where he revels in the natural powder and wide-open spaces. Then it's home to Maine to enjoy surfing off southern beaches, golf and snowboarding in his backyard at Sugarloaf. Seth lives his life outside.[+ FULL STORY]

What a Ride!" [+ FULL STORY]
