Harvey Edmanson - Protect Our Winters Australia

Harvey Edmanson


Growing up in Melbourne, the slopes of Mt Buller were my playground, where I first discovered my love of snowboarding and never lost it. Now, I proudly represent Australia in Parallel Giant Slalom and Parallel Slalom on the World Cup circuit. I've had a successful season in the European Cup and World Cup, now my sights are set on the 2026 Winter Olympics. I continue to train at Mt Buller where I have a very strong connection to the mountains driving my training. When I'm not racing, you'll often find me freeriding and exploring, chasing the best lines and immersing myself in the hills.

Alongside snowboarding I am a mechanical engineer and industrial designer. I'm passionate about blending my design engineering skills with snowboarding to craft eco-friendly products that make a positive impact on the industry. My work in sustainable snowboard design has earned me recognition through design awards.

I am very fortunate to ride in the Australian Alps, where many of my favourite spots are nestled among the snow gums. Yet, it's evident how delicate our winter environment is here. Competing globally, I've witnessed races being rescheduled due to low snow levels. Partnering with POW is really important to me to ensure the sport we all love so much can exist together within the amazing natural environment of the mountains.
