Dane began skiing at Red Mountain Resort at the ripe age of 3 years old, he skied in the Nancy Greene ski academy before graduating to the Red Mountain Racers ski team. Dane was a standout performer, with numerous podium finishes through the K1 and K2 divisions, winning the overall K2 provincial title to round out his racing career. Dane was constantly drawn to Red Mountains steep trees, pillows and cliffs that proved the perfect training ground for Dane as he progressed his free ride skills. In 2007 Dane moved towards a professional career in film skiing, he forged a working relationship with Theory-3 Media, giving him his first ski segment in "The Journal" during 07/08. In 2009 Theory-3 merged with Poor Boyz Productions, a big name player in the history of ski films and Dane's favorite production company. The merge gave Dane his breakthrough performance, showcasing his backcountry jump and big mountain prowess with the opening segment in "Every Day Is A Saturday", exploding him onto the freeski scene. Dane's hard work payed off and earned him nominations for Best Male Performance at The Powder Awards and the International Freeski Film Festival, he went on to take home Best Male Performance at the International Freeski Film Festival and Breakthrough Performance at The Powder Awards. Riding on the high of the 2009 season, Dane poured his heart and soul into film skiing, producing numerous award winning segments with Poor Boyz Productions through 2012. In 2013 Dane sustained a season ending injury, dislocating his hip in the Revelstoke backcountry suffering a traumatic 6 hr helicopter rescue. Dane is not one to sit back and let life pass by, he picked up the pieces and was quickly on the mend doing physio and gaining strength. Recovering like a true professional. Dane returned to the film arena in 2014 with Teton Gravity Research, producing a feature segment in TGR's movie "Almost Ablaze".

The team spent 16 days camped on the glacier, weathering heavy snowfall and cold nights. When a high pressure rolled in the crew began there 3am morning ritual, climbing 2 hrs up steep fluted spines under starry moonlight skies, enjoying spectacular sunrises while forging ahead to the summit for the reward of skiing the greatest lines of the year.
