Do you know our Pros? Meet Tyler Knoles – Powder Magazine Cover-man, Steeps Slayer, Tight Friend of Billy and Loyal Billy Poole Ski with the Pros Event Supporter!
Tyler Knoles is one epic ski pro. A core member of the Alta posse of screaming skiers with Julian Carr, Parker Cooke, Rachael Burks and, of course, Billy Poole. Tyler and Billy were tight friends who skied hard and played hard.
As house mates at “Casa De Shred Gnar“, he and Billy would plot their plans for conquering the areas plethora of cliffs. The planning paid off and the cliffs were their playground. Of course, the entire rad crew would rejoice in the pure beauty and spiritual experience that only hucking yourself off a major precipice can provide.
Have you heard the story of the unknown skier crushing the powder at Alta? Powder magazine’s January 2013 Photo Annual features a shot by photographer Jim Harris at Alta, UT. Jim spotted Tyler while he rode the chairlift. Jim snapped this amazing photo of Tyler in his glory. What Jim did not know was Tyler’s name. A mission to identify the person in the picture was undertaken. Tyler was identified and the Powder Magazine cover lives on!
Enjoy the photos of Tyler living the dream on the snow:
While cliff jumping and off piste skiing may not be something that many have the skills to master, Tyler also rocks the terrain while mountain biking through the varied terrain of Utah. The theme –> Steep. Is there a coincidence that the majority of the sports we all love require helmets??
Tyler has been supporting the Billy Poole Foundation since its inception. He dedicates his time for the event and has not missed one yet. We are so thrilled that he is able to come to our 2018 event next weekend as well. So make sure you ask Tyler about his favorite snow adventure as well as his favorite mountain biking trails when you see him next week.
Thanks again Tyler! See you at the 2018 Billy Poole Ski with the Pros Weekend!
