Simon Hillis

    Free Skier

    Rossland, BC

    Great things come in small packages. Born in Bali, Indonesia, Simon moved to Rossland with his family at the age of three. By the end of his first season on skis, the pint-sized Simon had savvy locals talking about his picture-perfect technique and his relentless hunger to be on his skis all day, every day. Simon spent the next three years dragging his dad around the mountain while also dominating in the Nancy Greene Ski League, but steep trees and big air have always been his passion. During the 09/10 ski season – at the ripe old age of seven – Simon was finally old enough to enter the Junior freeski ranks. He became Red Mountain’s youngest ever sponsored team athlete and made a powerful first impression on the Junior Freeskiing circuit, competing against kids who were four years older. In his debut season and his very first event, Simon finished third at the Canadian Junior Championships at Red Mountain in Rossland, BC. In 2013, Simon won his first North American Overall Jr Freeski Championship in the under 12 category, as well as the overall championship again in 2016 in the 12-14 category. Simon has also had multiple magazine features, including a front cover of Ski Magazine in 2010 and a six page article in the winter 2017 SBC Skier magazine. In 2018, at the ripe old age of 15, he was presented the opportunity to film with Warren Miller.
