Phil “B-Dog” Casabon thinks as intensely and creatively as he skis. Need proof? Challenge him to a game of chess. You’ll lose. Born and raised in Shawinigan, Quebec, B-Dog started on skis about the same time he began walking. He built his skills with his local race team, but by about 11, B-Dog’s restless mind led him to the emerging art form known as Freeskiing. Always one to push his game to new places and thank those you came before him and helped build his path, B-Dog is the consummate artist—thinking, creating, progressing, and challenging the status quo.
