Colorado native Bobby Brown made freeskiing history in 2010 by becoming the first skier at X Games to win two gold medals (big air and slopestyle) in one trip. Four years later the name Bobby Brown was etched in the freeskiing history books once again when he represented his country on the inaugural U.S. Olympic Team for slopestyle skiing in Sochi, Russia.

Brown’s X Games success in 2010 vaulted him to freeskiing poster boy status. That same year, Brown won the Junior World Championships for slopestyle, topped the overall AFP rankings and snagged silver in the Euro X slopestyle, all before his 19th birthday. In 2011 he made the podium in the X Games Aspen big air, won the Dew Tour slopestyle title, took the AFP World Champs slopestyle title and became the first skier to ever land a triple cork 1440. In the 2012 season, he mined more X Games gold in big air at Aspen and in slopestyle at Euro X.

After recovering from two broken ankles in 2013, Bobby jumped right back onto the competition circuit as an Olympic hopeful. He placed in the top five at all five of the Olympic qualification events, including the Breckenridge Grand Prix, where he took the win, and the Park City Grand Prix, where he placed second and clinched his ticket to Sochi. Under sunny Russian skies and spring-like conditions, Bobby finished ninth and helped deliver the first glimpse of Olympic slopestyle skiing to the world. Capping the season with a third at The Dumont Cup and a second in the AFP slopestyle rankings, 2014 was a banner year for Brown.

BOBBY SAYS
This season was a memorable one for me with a lot of first time experiences. I battled back from an injury and earned a space on the U.S. Olympic Team, which gave me an amazing opportunity to represent my country in Sochi. In order to accomplish that goal, I competed more than I ever have before in a single season. Looking ahead, I would like to give my fans a chance to see my skiing in a different way through a feature film video part and also an online edit to be released next season. I'm really grateful for all the opportunities I have to ski every day, and can't wait for next season. 

FIRST TRACKS
Brown, a Colorado native, was nine years old when he got his start on skis. Growing up in the Denver suburbs, he would build ramps and jumps in his yard to simulate a terrain park. Brown started competing on snow at age 11 with Team Summit’s moguls team, but he spent most of his time in the terrain park. He credits the program and coaches for nurturing his passion for air during his younger years. In high school, Brown and his friends drove up to ski Summit County on weekends “no matter what.” He became a pro skier at 16 years old and graduated a semester early from high school in 2009. Brown then moved to Breckenridge and won the first-ever Dew Tour overall for slopestyle, where he says, “it all took off.”

OFF THE SNOW
Like most pro skiers, Brown enjoys his downtime to the fullest. You can find him perfecting his latest trick on the trampolines or skating at the park with friends. He also enjoys art.
