Think You Look Like Seth Morrison?

This Halloween, we’re giving you an excuse to dress up like your favorite pro freeskier: Seth Morrison. That’s right, we’re hosting a Seth Morrison lookalike contest. Send us your best photo mimicking this image of Seth. The winner gets two pairs of Seth pro model Hestra gloves.
The Real Seth Morrison

The other night at a TGR premiere, I spotted Seth Morrison signing autographs behind a table. I wanted to ask him some questions, but I became speechless, dumbfounded, starstruck…I couldn’t think of anything. “Since seeing you in Ski Movie I have wanted to be you. How can I be more like you?” Whoa, that sounds scary. “Will you autograph this poster and write something perverted?” No, a little overbearing. “So your hair is black now, do you like it?” Why can’t I think of anything?

For years people have dressed up for Halloween as their favorite superhero—Superman, Robin Hood, The Hulk. For skiers, Seth Morrison is about as superhero as it gets. Everyone wants to be him, even girls like me. So instead of poking fun of the balloon boy or Michael Jackson or showing up to the bars in a gorilla suit, be Seth Morrison.

Send us a photo, most closely resembling our photo of Seth, and we’ll select the best mirror image. The winner gets two pairs of Hestra Gloves (Seth Morrison Pro Model and a Seth Morrison 3-Finger Pro.).Please email your image to

Deadline is Friday, November 6. 



The winner! Daniel will receive two pairs of Hestra Pro Model Seth Morrison Gloves.To read the details of the contest, click here.
