Mark Morris grew up in the mountains of Clear Creek County, Colorado. He started skiing at age 2 and learned the fundamentals of ski racing at Loveland Ski Area. He quickly changed his focus from racing to backcountry skiing at age 13 after his first helicopter skiing experience in Valdez, Alaska.
After high school, Mark moved to Crested Butte, Colorado, where he continued to learn the important balance of pushing personal limits while respecting backcountry safety. During Marks college years he competed in the IFSA throughout Canada and Alaska. Mark has skied across the world as a freerider and specializes in taking big air off large cliffs. Mark has redirected his efforts in skiing from competing to creating artful images with his favourite photographers, in his favourite places on the planet.
When Mark is not skiing he also travels the world as a musician, in pursuit of promoting life happiness.
