“I had been wanting to film street rails all winter. So when Drayden Gardner asked me to go up to Canada, it was a no brainer. Canada is driving distance from me. I’ve always wanted to go and it was a great opportunity to log some clips.” – Jed Sky
How long were you and Drayden out in Canada?
I was in Canada for about a week. Drayden stayed longer. For about two weeks, I think.
Where did you guys go?
We stayed in Trois Riviere, in English it’s Three Rivers. It is about halfway between Montreal and Quebec City. We hit spots in all three cities, as well as some other locations in Quebec.
What spots did you hit up?
We hit everything from down rails, to close outs, to wall rides. It was so sick!
Who were you out there filming with?
Drayden and I stayed with Tim Bouvette, who lives in Three Rivers. He snowboards and films really well and was down to shoot everyday. If it wasn’t for him, this trip wouldn’t have been possible. There was also Simon Martel, another Three River local who shreds, along with another three or four French-Canadian snowboarders.

Best day riding out there?
That’s so tough! It’s a close one. One of my favorite days was hitting a close out Montreal because it was a sick spot that everybody got clips on. My other favorite day could’ve been in Quebec City; we hit a rail and got good clips, then went to dinner at an awesome fast food place. After all the hard work of getting the clip that day, it was so rewarding to relax, eat greasy and warm food in a beautiful city.
Where are you headed now?
Right now I’m in Mammoth Lakes, CA for the third stop of the Revolution Tour.
Any events, filming coming up you’d like to mention?
I actually don’t have any events or trips planned until the spring! Just going to be cruising in New Hampshire trying to get as many clips as I can with my friends!
