The good folks over at The Ski Channel are presenting the life of one Sean Pettit in its Winter Sessions video series. In part one of the series, Pettit’s beginnings living in Whistler are outlined as Sean talks about the move from Quebec to British Columbia at age seven, how his mother worked two jobs so that he and Callum could continue living and skiing in the area, and much more. Skiing legends Tanner Hall and Mike Douglas weigh in on the first time each of them met a young Pettit, and Douglas reflects on the many young pro skiers that he’s seen grow up in Whistler. In addition to the quality interviews, some of the best footage of Pettit from the past couple of years is also showcased. Stay tuned for more episodes in the three part series.
