PARK CITY, UTAH (Oct. 8, 2009)--In their never-ending quest to establish the world's most authoritative center for gear knowledge online, Backcountry.com today announced that they have signed renowned big mountain and freestyle skier Seth Morrison to their team.

"Seth Morrison is, hands down, probably the most well-respected, iconic, bad-ass skier in the world," said Backcountry.com Team Wrangler Jon Atencio. "Year after year, Seth keeps laying down the law and blowing minds with his go-for-broke, spot-it-from-a-mile style. With Seth having his own pro model ski from K2, glove from Hestra, boot from Full Tilt, and Avalung pack from Black Diamond, he clearly understands not only the sport but the athlete/sponsor relationship as well, and we're really looking forward to his contributions to our sites."

Backcountry.com continues to stock their team roster with the most experienced and respected athletes in the world. Seth joins the Backcountry.com team with Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Chris Davenport, Erik Roner, Ingrid Backstrom, Jess McMillan, Nick Devore, Andrew McLean, Jeremy Jones, Steph Davis, plus 30 other elite athletes. It's quite a team.

"I'm excited to be a part of the Backcountry Team. I've been going to Backcountry.com for years to check out reviews and see the newest latest all in one place," said Seth. "Stoked to see all of my pro model gear on the site, it lets me know that we're creating needed products for today's skier."
