Scott Newsome was raised in Lake Louise, Alberta, in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, where he started snowboarding during the infancy of the sport. By age 16, Scott was snowboarding professionally and working on numerous film/photo projects that were some of the first to showcase the growing Canadian talent base. In 2005, Scott passed the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides Assistant Exam on his splitboard, making him the first ACMG certified snowboard guide to pass entirely on a splitboard. Now an ACMG certified Lead Snowboard Guide, Scott is an owner and head guide of Eagle Pass Heli-skiing in Revelstoke, BC.
