After a few seasons on the Freeride World Tour, Josh Daiek is hitting the skin track in pursuit of the classic lines around his backyard in South Lake Tahoe.
Originally from Michigan, Daiek moved to South Lake Tahoe after his senior year in high school. In 2005, he burst onto the scene at the Freeskiing World Tour. By 2008, he had claimed the overall championship. Daiek’s all-or-nothing approach to competing didn’t always land him on the podium but it definitely captured people’s attention. That same creative style has lead to innovative film segments with Salomon Freeski TV, among others, and helped him earn the Breakthrough Performance award at the 2015 Powder Awards.
