Chase is a Colorado Native. Growing up in the foothills of the Rockies, his Dad started putting him on boards as a toddler. Between a surf, skate and snow, Chase has always excelled with a board under his feet. Although he has a love for board sports, a strong passion emerged for snowboarding, tuirning heads from the time hit the Colorado scene as a grom. Enjoying all terrains of snowboarding, Chase enjoys hitting halfpipe and park, cruising groomers, surfing lines through trees and backcountry cornice drops. However, fresh slashes on pow days are always upping his stoke. Competitively, Chase has been fine tuning his skills in the Halfpipe since the age of 8. Chase’s break-out rookie year in 2015 with multiple international podiums. Finishing 3rd at FIS Junior World Championships in Yabuli, China, and landing 2nd at the Seven Springs USSA Rev Tour, Chase took the top spot at the World Rookie Tour Halfpipe in Olso, Norway.
