THE MILOSPORT TEAM
Since 1984, Milosport has been stoked to associate with some of the best snowboarders and skateboarders on the planet. Over the last 35 years, many snowboard and skateboard pros have launched their careers by riding for, what many say, THE BEST SNOWBOARD AND SKATEBOARD SHOP IN THE WORLD. In fact, the MILO TEAM is probably better than ANY team ever put together by any brand, anywhere, ever. Our LEGACY TEAM is a great example of how much talent has walked through our doors. Our current SNOW TEAM is a collection of some of the best riders in the world. And our SKATE TEAM has some of the best rippers and personalities ever. We are privileged to have such great friends and team riders. Welcome to the MILOSPORT TEAM page. We are ‘Utah’s Original Snowboard and Skateboard Shop’ !
Milosport Snow Team
If MILO has a team captain, it would be Jer. Since 1994, Jeremy has been on the MILO team, and we have been the better for it. Throughout his amazing career, Jer has been a staple rep for MILO. Through the early days of Rev Snowboards, to Forum, Burton, and now as an amazing brand ambassador for Nitro, Electric, Nixon, Destroyer, and Bolts, he has over achieved and been one of the best snowboarders in Utah, and frankly in the world. Stoked to be a part of Jer’s amazing career! Thanks man!
JP is an OG! He brought this street scene into snowboarding with his style and an untouchable bag of tricks. Being the first person to land a double cork, it’s easy to witness the impact JP has had on the progression of snowboarding. Ripping since his teens, JP is about as legendary as they come, and he hasn’t stopped. Couldn’t be more psyched to back the DON!
Forrest is a rock star, not only in snowboarding, but in life. One of the best humans ever, MILO is stoked to be able to call him a team member. Forrest’s riding style is unrivaled, as is his bag of tricks, but what makes him so amazing is his attitude. His never ending smile, and his passion for the outside are two things that we love to see when he walks in the doors. Thanks dude!!
Sage Kotsenburg is from Park City, and grew up along side of the Lick the Cat crew. Something must have been in the water Sage was drinking, because he is a BEAST! Olympic gold medalist, but before that, an all around awesome dude, who really focuses on the fun behind snowboarding. After all… that’s why we do it in the first place right?
You can check Sage in Lick The Cat’s acclaimed full-length “Video of the Year” along with many other Milosport riders, employees, and family.
Power with finesse. That comes to mind when you think of Bode.
Bode Merrill is a freak of nature. Whether he happens to be strapped in or going one-footed; Bode’s got arguably the deepest bag of tricks out of any rider out there. One of the most talented boarders out, he takes down spots, jumps, AK lines, all while going bigger than most. Catch him at a variety of resorts here in UT, when he’s not on the road making magic happen.
Nils is definitely one of the best people to be around, ever.
He is a young gun, making his way to the top spot quick! A true cowboy, the kid is a ball of good energy, always chasing an adventure, with little time wasted. A role model and all around great human, Nils is on a sick one. In 2017 Nils received Transworld’s “Standout Performance of the Year” after recording the fastest time in the men’s pro category as well as the switch race at Mt. Bakers Legendary Banked Slalom as well as filming a barn-burner of a full-part for “Pepper”. Be sure to watch Nil’s do what he does best in LTC’s “Video of the Year”.
Dan Brisse has got his eye on spots nobody else would think touch while strapped in. Brisse has an addiction to airtime, and adrenaline, pair that with his snowboarding, and you get a very unique style. Making the move to Utah, but still holding onto his roots, Dan has ridden for some of the best companies in the industry. Always pushing the limits, and always finding a way to go a bit bigger, Brisse continues to impress. Stoked to share Dan with our homies at The Youth Shelter!
“I’ve always looked up to Sam, I would always follow him around as a little kid, trying to mimic his style. People are drawn to his genuine personality on and off his board. When you mix all around skill, with style and power, you get a master. Sam is a master”
Spencer Schubert is the life of the party. Always on a mission to get a laugh or two, Spencer has a lot of fun while on his snowboard. Don’t let his little boy smile fool you, Spencer has a proper style in the streets. Although he’s got many years left in him, Spenny’s got quite the collection of video-parts already under his belt. If you havent seen him board, you can catch some of Spencer’s previous jibs as seen in Snowboarder Mags “Foreward”, 2032, Videograss “Visitors”, and most recently in LTC’s “Video of the Year” full-length flick.
Ted is one of the nicest and most-involved guys in snowboarding. He is a mastermind behind the multiple Bone Zones, rides as much as humanly possible, crushes it at Spedelli’s, has a custom pizza, films insane video parts, creates tons of web videos, and does it all with a humble attitude and a smile on his face. We are stoked to have Ted on the team as he has become a staple out here in Utah, as well as being an east coast hero. Keep your eye out for Bone Zone footage and his always unique video parts from Think Thank.
Nirvana Ortanez is a big inspiration for girl shredders or anyone of all ages.

A true East-Coast Powerhouse, Chris Beresford is a ripper and all around G! Owner of Dang Shades, if he’s not designing affordable eye wear you can catch him shredding Brighton or Mt. Hood. All around boss! Although he’s got many video parts and rail jam wins under his belt, Chris is just about as humble as they come and is always looking to help those around him.
No one makes lanky look better than Blake. Commonly referred to as Bproddi, Blake can be found riding at his home mountain Jackson Hole, WY and flying around Utah’s various resorts. Blake has taken a page out of the book of Bryan Iguchi’s timeless style with a new-school set of tricks. With effortless style and a great work ethic, we’ll be seeing Bproddi footage for years to come.
Max Warbington grew up around Bend, Oregon riding Mt. Bachelor. Max joined the Milo team in 2015 and we couldn’t be more stoked to support him. Max is one of the most passionate and talented snowboarders there is and it shows in his riding style. You can see Max ride in Think Thank’s The Weather Outside is Weather, Tre Squad edits, or up at his family’s farm is Tumalo, Oregon during the summer.
Most people feel comfortable just cruising around the resort, but it seems J-Mo is in his happy place hitting terrifying kinked rails in the street. Jordan has been a standout rider in the Wasatch for years. He crushed the Friday Night Jib Fight series, won countless other rail jams, has produced incredible edits at the resorts, and recently been putting together heavy street parts in some major videos. Jordan is on a tear, and he doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
Bend Oregon and Mt. Bachelor local, Gus Warbington joined the Milo team in 2015. Known for his legendary edge-control, G-Don has talent beyond his years while doing so with the smoothest and most creative riding styles around. Gus filmed a breakout video part for Rendered Useless and has continued to blow minds ever since.

With sections in Snooze Global, United Slopes of America, and even Justin Bieber music videos; Jill’s already got quite the colorful resume under her belt.
So hyped to have you part of the family Jill!
Get you a team rider who can do both. Whether its with a rake in his hand at Brighton resort, on a street mission at home or abroad, or just skating around SLC you’d be hard-pressed to find Pat without a board. You’d never see a more relaxed individual do the hardest rail tricks casually in a line, while still on the clock as a digger up at Brighton.
Pat’s a certified G on the board and we’re happy to have him on both the skate and snow team for Milosport
A man well-accustomed to early mornings hiking along the Wasatch front, Griff embodies the phrase, “Earn your turns”. Griffin Siebert has developed an untouchable style. In search of endless pow, Griff has found his niche in splitboarding in the Wasatch mountains. A Park City local, now gone viral with the art of his turn Griff approaches snowboarding in his own collective manner… and man can he tweak. Rumor has it, Griff once popped a rib out while doing a Japan…

Lil Jeff Richards
Jeff is about as good a person as I have ever met. Focused on others almost always, he is someone that can really make a difference in life. Great skater, but also great snowboarder, Lil Hefe is more that that tho. He will make everyone around him a better person. Stoked to know you Jeff.
Whether its in Salt Lake City, Oregon, or Seattle no piece of coping is safe from Ashton. Not many people feel comfortable in 8 feet of transition, but for Ashton that sounds like a slice of heaven. He might be a hard dude to track down, but wherever he’s he, let him know we’ve got his back.
Paul may be quiet, but don’t let that fool you. Behind that quiet demeanor is a shredder, and everyone knows it. A local at both Fairmont and 9th & 9th skateparks, when he shows up people know that they’re in to see some good skating, whether it be some tech tricks on the quarterpipe or a wallie variation that’s never been done before. To see more of Paul, check out his instagram @pawlcurtis, or check his new store Vantage to pick up a fresh kit.

Coming from one of Salt Lake City's most legendary shred families, it's easy to see why Zole is one of the best up-and-coming vert skaters around. Zole's been a regular around Milo since he was wearing diapers (he's only 16 so that was just a couple years ago) so it's no wonder he got good quick. When he's not raking asphalt, hanging in Bear Lake, or working on his truck; Fairmont park is his stomping ground. With an old-school bag of tricks and a new-school point of view, Zole's future is as bright as his belt buckles!
