"Exploring new zones, working with new technology, pushing that next limit is essential to the progression of riding"
Growing up on a cattle ranch in Wyoming, Carter has been snowboarding for 18 years. He recently wrapped up filming for Brain Farm and RedBull, and took second in the 2008 Quiksilver Natural Selection: All Mountain Invitational at Jackson Hole. He was featured in Teton Gravity Research’s Anomaly and Lost and Found, and has filmed with 1241 Pro, Bluebird Wax and Mongo Pro. A self-proclaimed “mountainman,” Carter spends his entire year outdoors. When he’s not riding he can be found guiding fly fishing and hunting trips.
"Being able to progress in the sport of snowboarding is very important to me," said Carter. "Exploring new zones, working with new technology, pushing that next limit is essential to the progression of riding."
