aka Mark Sollors
Whistler, British Columbia
Renaissance man Mark Sollors earned his recent notoriety the proper way, starting with Sandbox then holding it down on any and all terrain in his debut major movie release, the 2010 Transworld video, In Color. Handling everything from Whistler backcountry to urban terrain, Sollors’ video part helped him grab the prized 2011 Transworld Rookie of the Year award. But Mark was just warming up.
A committed Canucks hockey fan, mustache farmer, and Grenade Games “Most Radical Dude” complete with a complimentary Camaro, Mark is still one of the most humble guys in snowboarding. Yet during the 2011-12 season, he landed on the cover of Snowboard Canada’s Buyer’s Guide, impressed with a badass part in Burton’s Standing Sideways and represented in his effort for X Games Real Snow Backcountry. He also added more horsepower to the garage, taking home a Kawasaki KX250F dirt bike for winning the Ruckus in the Rockies. Once again, his winter was spent filming deep in the BC backcountry and the result is visible in Burton’s latest film, 13.
