Yu is a local Revelstoke legend.
Born in the city of Sapporo in Hokkaido, Japan, he now calls Revelstoke home. Yu only started skiing seriously when he moved to Whistler at the age of 19. Since moving to Revelstoke he’s been a regular member of the Freerider World Tour, known for dropping the biggest hits of Revelstoke, usually throwing a backflip while doing so.
In the winter he’s a member of the Freeride World Tour and ranked 4th in Japan. In the Summer he runs his own food truck ‘Far East Bistro’, whipping up some of the best Japanese food you can get in BC.
