Sam Kuch

Sam grew up in Nelson in a family of skiers. Since he was a grom, his life revolved around winter and skiing. Sam began ski racing on the Whitewater Ski Team but quickly realized that he wanted the freedom to roam the hill on his own terms. He joined the Whitewater Freeride Team along with a posse of extremely talented young skiers and coaches where he began to excel in freeride skiing. Sam Competed in Freeski contests through his teens resulting in him winning the overall North American title. Through a series of good connections and small, successful film shoots, Sam got noticed by the producers of Matchstick Productions. Sam went on to put out an award-winning segment that skyrocketed his career to where it is today.

Sam is currently living his dream as a professional skier, filming segments, and traveling to amazing ski spots around the world. Of all the places that he has skied, nothing compares to the slopes that raised him.
