JP Auclair is skiing’s renaissance man.
— Powder Magazine, February 2013

I consider JP to be one of the most brilliant minds of the action sports world—creative, dedicated, principled, and universally loved. He’s had an outstanding career as a pro skier and has been one of the most influential skiers of all time

I introduced [JP] to my friend Jonas and, quoting a study he read about saying that hugging someone for longer than 20 seconds creates an emotional bond between people, hugged him for 30 seconds and made yet another person feel as if they’d just made a new best friend. JP was a badass skier, a visionary filmmaker, and most importantly an immensely kind person.
