US Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame Inductee, along with his brother Dan (2016), rated 1 of the top 48 greatest skiers of our time and most influential people in the last 35 years (Powder 2006), top 50 skiers on the continent (Powder 1999), and top 7 in the world (Powder 1995), John has skied what others thought were unskiable, accumulating dozens of first descents.
Starting on the US Pro Tour, Mogul Tour and at the US Snowboarding Championships, he explored what Mother Nature had to offer. John got nationally recognized in the 80’s when Warren Miller identified him as an original “poster boy.” Warren referred to him as “the A.T.V. of skiers – the boldest and most innovative to come along” and sent him all over the globe for more than 14 films. John, along side his brother Dan, produced and starred in many films, was sponsored by brands, hosted promotions, and performed as a stunt man.
John pursues his love of mountain life both at home and on the road.
From Argentina to Siberia, he has fans and friends everywhere. As founder of the Adventure Learning Center at Sugarbush, he helps people achieve their personal goals. Collaborating with organizations, he inspires others with lessons learned outdoors and how applied to everyday life can both increase performance and enhance one's quality of life.
For more than 40 years, John has been a spokesperson for ski enthusiasm, inspiration and leadership qualities. His onscreen and press experience include The Today Show, The New York Times and other local, national and industry-specific media.
Egan tirelessly spreads his philosophy on mojo, advances theories of perpendicularity and flow-mentum, while sharing gravitational enhancement techniques. If you talk with anyone lucky enough to have spent time with John, they’ll tell you he has changed their life.
He is a revered teacher and icon and continues to inspire generations to come.
