Seth Wescott is a world champion snowboarder whose love of the sport comes from a deep passion for the mountains, the snow, and the moments, as he describes, when he gets to be alone with gravity. Seth's calling to be on a snow board started when he was just six years old and received his first skateboard. "It was a narrow red plastic board, that's now burned into my memory. That first ride... I couldn't believe the freedom of standing upright and rolling downhill. I felt so proud."
Seth was born in 1976 in Durham, North Carolina, but grew up in Farmington, Maine. He now resides in Carrabassett Valley, where he has built a home using renewable resources and green building practices.
Seth's career started gaining fame in 2004 when he placed 2nd in The World Cup. Since then he has gone on to be a gold medalist in the 2005 World Championships and a silver medalist in the 2006 World Champions. In 2008 and 2009, Seth won the World Cup Race. But the pinnacle of Seth's career was when he won golds in the winters of 2006 and 2010.
When Seth's not traveling the world training, he can be found building snowboard courses at his home mountain, Sugarloaf, or working at his brew pub, The Rack. Seth also works hard to give back to his community and is involved with many nonprofits, like Take it Outside, a program designed to help fight obesity and get people to enjoy the outdoors. Seth is also on the board of directors for Maine Huts and Trails.
In addition to his snowboarding career, restaurant business, and nonprofit work, Seth loves surfing, mountain biking, writing and photography. Well-rounded and driven, Seth is a true Maine hero — and Norway Savings is honored to have him on its team.
