Raised on the cold, frozen tundra of Big Lake, Minnesota where he and his brother Bjorn still keep their infamous “Jib Farm”; Erik “Mule” Leines was transported to the high, dry mountains of Utah at an early age where he and BJ honed their now world-renowned skills on the infamous steeps and deeps of Snowbird Mountain Resort.
Erik’s put in work on a snowboard for years—with video parts and magazine spreads ranging from pre-Luminous Llama to Escramble, and beyond. Nowadays in-between cliff drops and face shots when the six-inch rule* is in effect, Erik has taken on the brunt of the many responsibilities that come with running Celtek—a glove and accessories company that he started a few years back with BJ. But best believe when the aforementioned six-inch rule is in effect, you’ll be standing behind Mule and a few of his Clansmen in the Snowbird Tram line.
