Film star Jye Kearney was already riding for Burton and landing magazine covers by age 13 and was one of the only southern hemisphere snowboarders to make a debut in an internationally recognised snowboard film with Method Magazine.

While Thredbo raised brother and sister duo, Joey and Arkie Elliss, used to swap school days with riding days when the roads were snowed in and can be found carving all through winter.
