Nicholas Pajor was born in Santa Monica, California; by the age of two years old he was climbing the cliffs on the side of the ocean. At the age of four years old his family moved to Colorado for a better change of environment. His love for winter sports started when he began to play hockey at the age of 9. He quickly found a love for getting pucks shot at him and decided to become a goalie. He continued to play throughout high school and into his first year of college at Colorado Mesa University
Unfortunately, his first year of college was struck with tragedy by the passing of his father. This awful event had one positive outcome, which was the discovery and love for skiing. At the age of 19, Nicholas started skiing because of the cute girl across the hall. On his first day of skiing he quickly forgot about the girl and was quickly enveloped by his newfound passion.
Over the course of the following three years Nicholas continued with his skiing career and bagan competing. His first competition was a local slopestyle competition close to the college in Powderhorn, Grand Junction. He placed third and knew this would be the start of his career.
As a kickstart to his new career, Nicholas began working for the company Never Summer Inc. Here he learned how to build snowboards and Icelantic skis. The company not only benefited Nicholas by helping him learn more about skis, but it also allowed him to meet some amazing people including sponsors and new friends.
In the next few years Nicholas travelled all over the world to compete on the Freeride World Qualifying Tour. One of his favorite places he has most recently travelled to is Chile. Here he not only grew in his athletic skiing career, but also learned much about himself from the trip.
Today Nicholas is preparing for the upcoming ski season. He is excited to apply what he has trained for this summer to the new season. He will continue to compete in Big Mountain and will start to compete in slopestyle. Over the course of the season you can catch Nicholas filming urban segments and backcountry lines in the Rocky Mountains.
