Scott Stevens is one of the most creative snowboarders out there and his skills on a trampoline are second to none. He’s not a household name but he should be. Instead, he’s a blue-collar snowboarder who is comfortable in front of the camera, not crowds. I caught up with Scott at High Cascade Snowboard Camp to talk about his life and career.
