Mark Abma

Big Mountain/Freeskiing

Big mountain freeskier Mark Abma is one of the most celebrated freeskiers in the sport with over a decade of influence through multiple award winning parts in Matchstick Productions, and seminal parts with Poor Boyz and Sherpa Cinemas. Mark is a product of Coastal BC, and is currently based in Pemberton, near his home resort of Whistler Blackcomb. Mark finds plenty of terrain both inbounds in the massive park kickers and out of bounds in the pillows, trees and steeps upon which to impart his fluid style.

Mark’s approach to skiing is as introspective as his approach to life—he thrives on challenge, creativity and a sense of satisfaction. He also focuses on leading an ecologically aware life achieved through his eco-friendly homestead, his grease-fueled truck and a very intentional local approach to daily life. This season Mark once again filmed with Matchstick Productions for the release of Ruin And Rose.
