In the shadows of Washington powder magnet Mt. Baker is the small town of Glacier, the home town of Lucas DeBari, athlete for The North Face.
First strapping into a snowboard at the age of four, DeBari’s undeniable talent was first noticed in his early teens. After several successful years competing in the halfpipe, he grew jaded and decided to cut back – preferring sessions with friends in the backcountry powder to the cutthroat competition circuit. His undeniable park talent had an obvious influence on his riding in the powder
2008 saw DeBari, receive the prestigious ‘Rookie of the Year’ award in Transworld Magazine Rider’s Poll and it saw him fulfill a childhood dream by winning the Mt. Baker Legendary Banked Slalom.
