Marcus Caston

VTPB Pro-Team member, Freestyle skier, and accomplished photographer. Marcus Caston initially cut his teeth in the ski race scene on the Snowbird Ski Team, specializing in the Super G and Downhill realm. His success in the speed events allowed him to travel around the globe competing on some of the most prestigious race hills. His racing background was a perfect segue to the all mountain domination needed to do well on the Rahlves Banzai Tour, where competitors race down unkept race courses on the mountain and Marcus excelled during 2011. In 2012, Marcus was given the chance to head to Alaska to test himself on big mountains lines with his friend (and legendary ski racer) Ted Ligety, filming with Warren Miller for Flow State. This proved to be both a humbling and enlightening experience, challenging his strong skiing with the variable conditions found on the largest mountains Alaska has to offer. Since then Marcus has been hooked, hunting for deeper powder and steeper lines throughout the world, from Svalbard, Norway, Iceland and Italy to North America. Marcus has also taken a focus on studying the art of skiing as self-expression. His interest in the arts began towards the end of his ski racing career, when he picked up a camera and began capturing moments shared between friends and the mountains. Perhaps it was simple nostalgia towards the end of his ski racing life, but it was certainly a personal evolution, which grew into a ski revolution to take skiing back from the daredevils. In his ski racing afterlife, Marcus is on a mission to create and share inspiring skiing through expression, rather than awe people with dangerous and showy stunts. In pursuit of the perfect powder turn and mountain line, he adheres to the values and practices of the greats. Photo Credit: Gabe Rogel

Paige Christie

Boston resident and U.S Open Water Marathon Swimmer, Paige Christie has made history completing the grueling (120 mile) 6th annual NYOW 8 Bridges Hudson River swim that begun June 26th.

This is the longest marathon swim in the world, and Paige set a new record by being the youngest person in the world to complete this task. Paige joins an elite group of only five others to finish this swim, and had the fastest times this year on the two longest portions of the swim (19.8 miles each). In addition to being a decorated collegiate swimmer at Smith College, she completed a solo crossing of the English Channel in 12 hrs and 55 minutes in 2014.

Paige set her sites and begun training at her local club team Crimson Aquatics for the last year for this prestigious event. During this week long event, she faced winds, ever-changing weather, and currents. Paige's biggest hurdle was consuming enough nutritious fuel and being able to recover in a short amount of time each day. She credits sponsor Vermont Peanut Butter Company for providing her go to post swim, PB&J.

After enjoying some recovery time, Paige is looking forward to the next swimming event at the end of July, where she will serve as a support swimmer for her Smith College teammate Abby Bergman’s Catalina Channel attempt. It will be Abby’s first marathon swim and Paige is ready to help make it a success. Afterwards Paige will be attending law school, but is still going to make time to stay involved and active in the marathon swimming world.

Billy Trautner

BIlly Trautner has been in love with snowboarding from the age of 5. Whether riding with his family or attending Adventure program at Stowe Mountain, he was always at the hill.

Billy continues to show excellence in his racing speed and ability, as well as his execution of technical skills. He has taken 1st place in multiple competitions this season and is, once again, headed to Nationals in Copper at the end of the winter.
