Jasper Snow Rosen

Salt Spring Island, Coast Salish Territory, BC

Jasper grew up on Salt Spring, an island located on the west coast of British Columbia. Growing up with his parents kayaking business and outdoor education youth programs, he’s always been immersed in various outdoor pursuits. A year in Jasper’s life usually consists of working in the summer running kayak and eco ed programs, playing music and growing/preserving his own food, which he then takes on his adventures in the Winter. His trips have been very vast, whether it be bicycling down the Baja while stopping to surf along the way or exploring the northern mountains. Jasper has been involved with environmental and social resistance alongside Beyond Boarding. He has created a film called Northern Grease with fellows, Tamo Campos and John Muirhead.
