About Cody

Cody is one of the most awarded skiers in freeskiing history. He’s had a successful alpine ski racing career, done stunt skiing for Hollywood films, and more. Currently, Cody is involved in a project called The FIFTY, where he’s attempting to ski mountaineer all of the lines chronicled in the iconic book, “Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America.” Cody’s connection with evo started with his first trip ever as a pro skier. He was invited to a shoot for Powder Magazine alongside evo Founder and CEO Bryce Phillips. Cody told us, “We traveled the West jumping from resort to resort, staying only in hostels along the way. I became close friends with Bryce from that moment forward.”

Cody's Ski's

The outgoing QST 99 left big shoes to fill, so Salomon went huge on a replacement and absolutely stomped the landing. The Salomon QST 98 Skis bring a fresh freeride philosophy to the mid fat range with an all new shape that takes its cues from QST's new big brother, the QST Blank. There's noticeably more rocker and taper in tip and tail, a tighter radius, and a looser, more pivoty feel than their forefathers - think easier tail release, effortless slarves, and more playful riding in featured terrain. But don't worry, they still know how to rail on edge, with Salomon's new Double Sidewall Technology for added grip and power transmission. If you're in the market for a fun-loving everyday ripper, you can call off the search - you just found your forever ski.
