Welcome back to MTN x DNA, a new series produced by Method and Monster Energy to take a look into the snow pedigree of the Monster Snow team and how they got to where they are today.
We’ve got another Canadian featured in this sophomore episode, the versatile Mont-Tremblant, Quebec native Charles Reid. Reid cut his teeth, and gained quite a considerable following, as a content ripper, landing a number of high profile podiums in the mid-aughts and early 2010s, like a 3rd place finish in slopestyle at the 2008 Burton US Open, a 1st place finish at the 2008 Oakley Stylewars Slopestyle, a 3rd place finish in Dew Tour slopestyle in 2011 and many more.
More recently, Reid garnered attention for his quarterpipe riding chops and the style he brings to natural terrain, and it is perhaps this prowess for which he is best known. His transition toward more big-mountain focused riding has been masterful and has continued to shape his general love for the outdoors. We explore his snowboarding roots, that passion for nature, owning and flying a plane and much more in this latest MTN x DNA.
We will be dropping a new episode every Monday of May. Stay tuned!
