Meet Christopher

I’m Christopher Galvin, professional snowboarder. My main focus right now is the upcoming 2016 Freeride World Tour, which begins this upcoming January, and I am also planning another trip to Japan with my friend and fellow boarder Ryland Bell.  We hope to capture some amazing video footage both overseas and locally in the Lake Tahoe area.

My passion for beautiful mountains and snowboarding has only continued to grow!  I am proud to have qualified for the World Tour for the second straight year and I owe great thanks to my current sponsors, Never Summer Snowboards and Now Bindings. They’ve done an amazing job of helping prepare me for success and I’ve strived to represent them well.

But to continue towards my goals on tour, I am seeking greater support from more exciting companies that I know I can proudly represent.  I’m looking forward to working with you and your company, and excited for a great 2016 season!

Thanks for your time,

Christopher Galvin

My journeys and accomplishments would not be possible without the continued support of these great companies!



Never Summer Snowboards is a Colorade based snowboard company. When Christopher is dropping in on a Freeride World Tour finals run, the only board he trust for precision control and flex, is a Never Summer.

Totally Board in Truckee, CA has been North Tahoe's orginal board shop from the beginning. Christopher has been backed by Totally Board since the start of his snowboarding career. If you are Truckee and need a new tune or the best snowboard gear, make sure to stop by.

Onyx Digital Media is a web and graphic design studio based in Truckee, CA and Reno, NV. With their own background in professional snowboarding, Onyx is responsible for the Christopher's logo and website design.
