What We Recommend for Hair Like This

  2. How about a little après-ski moisturizing while sitting around the fireplace? We recommend a deep treatment once a week with Mop Top Deep Conditioner.

Quick Facts

  1. White was born with a heart defect and underwent two open-heart surgeries by age 1; he switched from skiing to snowboarding at age 6.
  2. White's mother only allowed him to snowboard backwards, in an attempt to get him to slow down; this actually helped develop his skills.
  3. A professional skateboarder as well, White is the only skater to land the Body Varial Frontside 540.
  4. Known for his red curly hair and getting big air, he is often called "The Flying Tomato."
  5. Two-time Olympic Gold medalist - once at Torino in 2006 and again at Vancouver in 2010.
