Bio

My name is Austin White, I'm 19 years old, and live in Kelowna BC, Canada. I attend UBC-Okanagan as a second year student in human kinetics with a focus on lifestyle and wellbeing, and train with the UBCO Varsity Cross Country team. On top of this, my priority is Snowboard Cross, in which I train with the BC Snowboard Cross team and compete for Canada at various international circuits across the world. I recently travelled to Kazakhstan to compete for Canada at the 2017 Winter Universiade, where I placed 6th out of a field of 38 World Cup riders. My goal for this season is to qualify once again for Jr World Championships and travel to Switzerland to compete for Canada, as well as qualify for the 2019 Winter University Games in Russia.
