Michael Rapp’s approach to his sport is uniquely pure. In the power sports industry, so many people are caught up in making the big time and getting paid to ride. Michael is content to keep the main thing the main thing; riding. While he has sponsors like HMK helping him out, his goal is to continue riding for the pure enjoyment of it. The bond he feels with his closest riding buddies, whether they’re buried up to their neck in powder or just enjoying a crisp calm day, is the priceless experience he hopes to never lose sight of.
For Michael Rapp, sled riding is an art form. The perfect day consists of 2 feet of fresh powder, a blue bird sky, one or two friends and a camera. Trekking through the back country carving pure untouched snow in search of the perfect photo to capture the days events.
