Did you hear Travis Rice was at Whitewater?

A rumour is circulating on social media that world-class snowboarder Rice is skiing at Whitewater Ski Resort this week. Rebeckah Hornung sales and marketing director said she heard talk too but if the snowboard sensation was on the hill Friday, he remained low-key not drawing a lot of attention.

Rice is no stranger to the Kootenay ski scene. As creator of the Red Bull Supernatural contest, he has hosted the event at Baldface Lodge.

On his way up to Whitewater on Saturday, 11-year-old Shea Elliot got caught up in the idea that the famous athlete could possibly still be sharing the local slopes with him.

“He’s the one who inspired me to start snowboarding,” said Elliot.

When previously in Nelson, Rice has taken time to meet with his fans, many being young snowboarders.
