Jim worked his way as a mogul athlete to the national team where he peaked in 2004 winning two World Cup medals: a gold (Fernie, CAN) and a silver (Inawashiro, JPN). Jim suffered a knee injury and retired from the team in 2006 after being unable to rehab in time to return to competition that season.

During the last five years of his competitive career, Jim knew that he would one day transition to coaching; Jim ended up securing a position with the Canadian Team immediately after retirement and has since shared his knowledge with our athletes and coaches. In 2021-22, Jim was appointed as Lead of the Canadian mogul program where he continues to direct the program planning and coach athletes from Next Gen to the World Cup team.
