When you grow up in the town where the U.S. Aerials Team trains, inspiration isn’t hard to find. Park City, UT native Madison Olsen got her start on the moguls slope, but the monster aerials jump soon caught her eye and a dream was born. “Getting to watching the U.S. Ski Team train and compete, I decided that I wanted to pursue the goal of making the national team and to hopefully one day go to the Olympics,” says Olsen.
The 2012 season saw Olsen spread her wings on the NorAm Tour with three wins and three more podiums, earning her a second-place NorAm ranking. She ended her season with a first place finish at her U.S. National Championships debut.
Following Olsen’s breakout year, 2013 was all about the World Cups, as she snagged three top-10 results and a top 20 at World Championships in Voss, Norway.
