Simon was left off the Canadian Olympic team in 2014, bagged groceries to make ends meet and had zero (0!) podium finishes in major contests before winning X Games Aspen 2015. He's the only Canadian to win the event. Unfortunately, Simon injured his left ACL/MCL at the end of the 2015 season. After an arduous, long recovery, he broke an ankle in September 2016, further delaying his return. XG Aspen 2017 will be his first comp back. His grandparents, Sonya (née Butt) and Guy, were British spies during World War II and became heralded after the Allied victory.
- XG Aspen 2015 Ski SuperPipe: gold. Only Canadian male to earn gold in the discipline. Finished 14th as an XG rookie in 2014. Missed XG Aspen 2016 because of a serious injury to his left knee.
- April 2015: Injured left ACL/MCL and meniscus at Jon Olsson Invitational. Had surgery in June and didn't start skiing again until Dec. 1, 2015. XG Aspen 2017 is his first comp back. Also broke left ankle Sept. 2016.
- 5th overall, 2015 AFP halfpipe rankings
- Grandparents were famous spies in World War II: Sonya Butt and Guy d'Artois. Sonya died at 90 in Dec. 2014.
