Seth Morrison, Bio
Born: 30th November, 1973
Home: Murray, Kentucky
If you believed his nickname, you'd think there was nothing special about “The Ordinary Skier”. But Seth Morrison is anything but ordinary. To him, skiing is more than just a sport, and more than just a job. It's a whole way of life.
Seth emerged from the middle class outskirts of the Windy City, Chicago, but instead of taking the obvious career path of windsurfing, he found himself on the slopes of the Colorado Rockies and at the forefront of the emerging Freeskiing movement.
Seth's story is one of resilience and determination. The Freeskiing movement was formed by a group of misfit skiers who wanted to take their sport in a more expressive direction. Once the sport of the athletic elite, skiing today is a creative discipline where the whole mountain is the canvas and the only limits are self-imposed.
Through years of focus and hard work, Seth made his name by throwing himself over huge cliffs and backflipping off things that would make most people flee in fear. He's survived avalanches, super-fast vertical descents and even a helicopter crash. All in a days work for The Ordinary Skier.
Seth Morrison makes the extraordinary look like the ordinary. That's where Seth and Oakley see eye to eye.
