To have one world-class snowboarder from the prairies of Saskatchewan is pretty rare, but two?
As the elder statesman of the McMorris brothers, Craig is a veteran of the Canadian snowboard scene after first stepping on a board at the young age of 11.
Like any true older brother, Craig has been a mentor to his younger sibling over the years, teaching Mark a few tricks along the way from 720s to impressing the ladies.
Craig McMorris ‘sends it’ at all times with a personality as big as the tricks he stomps. Whenever he's around, you know you're in for good times.
But beyond the antics on and off the hill, Craig is all business.
In 2014, he debuted as the snowboard analyst for CBC’s Olympic broadcast coverage in Sochi 2014 and has become the voice of slopestyle and halfpipe snowboarding for ESPN's X Games Aspen.
In 2015, he added the role of skateboard analyst and host of the aftershow for X Games Minneapolis.
He's also shown his versatility and personality in branded content for Red Bull, Oakley, Destination Canada, Wrigley's 5 Gum Truth or Dare, Samsung, Air Miles, and VISA to name a few.
At the Rio 2016 Olympics, Craig took to the streets for CBC to explore a side of the city – it's music, food, dance, soccer, surf and skateboard culture – and bring it all to Canadians through an immersive content series called Rio on the Edge.
In January 2017, Craig debuted in a signature content series on CBC, appropriately titled Good Times with Craig McMorris where, you guessed it, Craig has some really good times with some of Canada's most interesting action sports athletes.
Craig joined CBC Olympics as the overnight host, snowboard analyst and host of VISA's content series Pushing Limits in Pyeongchang 2018, cementing his reputation as one of the most versatile talents in action sports.
And, as an accomplished snowboard pro, he also added a career-first medal in X Games medal Real Snow in 2019.
Up next, CBC Olympics for Tokyo 2021.
