At well over six feet, Reece “Big Rig” Howden is one of the team’s taller racers. His height and athleticism helped him to the podium’s top step at the 2016 Youth Olympic Games, and he transferred that success to the next level, becoming the NorAm champion in 2017-18.

While balancing life as a student and a World Cup athlete, the Cultus Lake, B.C., native won his first World Cup race on home snow in Nakiska, AB, in 2020 and was the overall Crystal Globe winner and named FIS Freestyle Rookie of the Year in 2020-21 after hitting the podium a stunning six times.

While he faced challenges in his first Olympic season of 2021-22, Howden was back amongst the best in 2022-2023, winning his second Crystal Glove, with victories in Innichen, ITA, Idre Fjäll, SWE and Craigleith, ON. Throughout the season, he raced to the podium seven times.

Defending his second overall World Cup title in three seasons, Howden, now 25, will hope to push forward and continue breaking boundaries in the sport of ski cross.
