Seth Wescott – L.L.Bean Ultimate Testing and Design Partner

About Seth Wescott. Snow Sports Legend and Passionate Maine Outdoorsman.

Over the past 15 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]

SETH WESCOTT’S PHILOSOPHY

"Wow! What a ride!"

Hunter S. Thompson, Seth's favorite author, wrote: "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!" [+ FULL STORY]
