Sean Hanagan - Colorado USA

As ambassador of big burly badassery, Sean embodies Bishop's winter obsession and takes it to a new level. Sean started freeing the heel in 2003 and has been fully committed since. He spends somewhere around 70 days on the snow each year. Sean's aggressive skiing style and reputation for being hard on equipment meant that the Bishop 2.0 was a perfect fit and he could be a big help in designing and testing new products. To further the sport of telemark Sean helped start a Telemark junior development team in the Vail Valley. He also founded the Vail Players Club, a ragtag group of snow obsessed individuals who take winter hedonism very serious. In early November each year the Vail Players Club hosts a fundraising event called Ullr-Fest to raise money for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. In the off season you can find Sean competing in amateur lumberjack competitions like the Man of the Cliff (three time champion) and taking advantage of gravity on a mountain bike.
