John Giacomazzi has a contagious smile. If you catch him on the mountain or are fortunate enough to run into him at the Woodward Trampoline Park, you will remember him. John is like many of us who chose to live the dream, dedicating a good portion of his life to living near mountains. John has spent time in Oregon, Canada, Korea, New Zealand and he even spent time in China during the 2018 Olympics.
After living on the road with and as an athlete, John decided to create an atmosphere for athletes that supports them and their goals while supplying the type of support structure that allows them to solely concentrate on athletics. Learn more.
Like most people, I love snowboarding to the point where I have been fortunate that I can ride almost all year round. We all have our calling and for me, in an attempt to stand out and be different, I started riding and jumping with only one foot strapped in. What started as an easier way to get to certain lifts turned into an all out way of life for me on the mountain. We can do anything if we can calm ourselves down and be still.
John is very active on the international snowboarders scene as he has worked with and housed athletes from Japan, China, Norway, New Zealand, Australia, Korea and a host of others. He is presently building HABBIT LLC, which provides boarding, athletic support as well as tutoring to international students. But what John loves more than anything is taking his student athletes to the Trampoline Park at Woodward Copper Mountain.
We all have our approach to how to get through life. What we also have to do is remember that we are not alone and we must be aware of and learn how to live int he space of others. Especially in the time of this pandemic, where it is easy to be self absorbed and only focus on our needs. We have to focus that energy outward in order to improve one another's lives.
