I can’t even remember a time in my life that I wasn’t a skier. I guess that’s what happens when you grow up in a skiing family and start when you are 3. I have my older sisters, Christy and Jessica to thank for my speed addiction. They were always hard to keep up with. My sisters and I learned how to ski at Sky Tavern, just outside of Reno, Nevada, and raced for Mt Rose in our early years. I loved to race, but more than anything else I like to spend time off the ground. I was often in trouble with my race coaches in the early years for skipping practice and sneaking off to the terrain park. Lets just say that my race skis endured a lot of mysterious freeskiing related damage. When I was 11, I finally convinced my dad to let me join a freestyle ski team; he agreed only if I would be willing to stick with racing for a year and give both sports a try. I made it about half way through the season before I left racing behind for good and embraced freeskiing. In the early years I competed in moguls, aerials, big air, halfpipe and slopestyle under the direction of Clay Beck. I gravitated toward the new school events that I could watch on TV at the X Games, especially the halfpipe, by far the most dangerous and most exciting.

The rest is history.

I have had an amazingly successful career and won every halfpipe competition possible to win, including the Olympic Games; but I can’t take credit for all of that.  Everything that I have is a gift, and I could never have done it without the support of some amazing people along the way. So thank you to everyone that has helped me in the past, and thanks to any new followers and supporters today. We are just getting started!  I’m coming off two of the most challenging seasons of my life. Two years of struggles and injuries and hard luck have really served to re-ignite my competitive fire. The beast is awake and I have my sights set on another Winter Olympic Games in Pyeong Chang, South Korea.
