Scot Schmidt (born July 21, 1961, in Helena, Montana) is a professional extreme skier. His on-snow talent has helped shape today’s ski industry, and has inspired many skiers. Scot started skiing professionally in 1983 in Squaw Valley. A Warren Miller cameraman who had heard of Scot’s relaxed style (how he did not look like he was winding up a window when jumping off cliffs) asked him to appear in their film Ski Time. Scot has appeared in 39 other ski movies, becoming a pioneer of extreme skiing. Scot Schmidt was a partner and director at Island Lake Catskiing in Fernie B.C. He filmed a few movies with Greg Stump there. Schmidt now lives in Santa Cruz, Calif.
Schmidt has appeared in films including The Blizzard of Aahhhs (1988), Warren Miller's Five Winter Stories: A Legend Continues (1995), Warren Miller's In Search of Powder (1993), P-Tex, Lies and Duct Tape (1993) and Aspen Extreme (1993).
