A pro rider by day, plumber by night, Jonathan Cheever mixes his snowboarding talent like it's plumbers putty, shredding park, pipe and the SBX course. While all of his major results have come from SBX, he's known for some of the biggest airs in the halfpipe and credits his SBX speed to knowing how to handle the big kickers on the course. Cheever kept making strides in 2011 with two second-place finishes on the World Cup. The Saugus kid added some flare to his season too, winning the U.S. title and a swanky green dinner jacket that comes with it. In 2012 Cheever earned three top-10 spots at the World Cup tour, including third at Stoneham.

After an unfortunate Achilles’s tendon rupture last season, Cheever worked hard in 2013 and competed in a whopping seven World Cups. He eventually cracked into the top 10 in Switzerland and Austria. Cheever also earned invites to the FIS World Snowboarding Championships at Stoneham, Quebec and the World Cup finals in Sierra Nevada, Spain.

JONATHAN SAYS
My results last season were a fluke and I am looking forward to the biggest year of my career.

FIRST TRACKS
Cheever started skiing when he was eight at Nashoba Valley, MA. During Thanksgiving ‘97 his parents had free snowboarding lessons at Attitash Bear Peak in New Hampshire. He jumped on a board and never turned back. Nate Park helped him out quite a bit when the two met in 2004 and he continues to do so. He says he didn't know anything about anything until he met that dude.

OFF THE SNOW
Cheever is into almost all sports. Right now it’s NHL playoff time and he says, “Go Go Black and Gold.” When he isn’t on his board, he is also a plumber, which can be difficult since he works 12-hour days and still finds time to stay in shape. The way he sees it, he has no choice. It’s his goal to be at the gym at least five days a week to stay in shape for the upcoming season.
