Following the recent release of MAX’s docu-series “Shaun White: The Last Run,” Snowbound Expo announces that iconic snowboarder and three-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White will speak at this year’s event in November. White joins the well-known community meet-up event that kicks off the 2023/24 winter sports season. The expo returns November 3-5, 2023, at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
Shaun White is a five-time Olympian and a three-time Olympic gold medalist in halfpipe snowboarding and will grace the Inspiration Stage at Snowbound Expo. Renowned as a snowboarding superstar, White has won Gold at the 2006, 2010 and 2018 Winter Olympics and has won a medal every time he has participated in the X Games from 2002 until 2013.
