Brayden Kuroda Selected to NextGen

We are extremely proud to announce that BC Mogul Team’s very own Brayden Kuroda has officially been selected to Freestyle Canada’s NextGen Mogul Team. This comes as no surprise after an incredibly successful season including multiple NorAm SUPERfinal appearances, a top 5 at Canadian Nationals and a huge win at Canada Winter Games. Brayden exemplifies what it means to be a professional, hardworking and dedicated athlete and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for him. We wish him the best of luck in the next step of his mogul skiing career!
