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.

FIRST TRACKS
Growing up in the ski mecca of Park City, UT, Olsen started skiing at the age of two. At 12 years old she started competing in moguls but switched to aerials at 14.

OFF THE SNOW
When Olsen is off the slopes, she’s usually spending time with either her teammates or friends from school. “It's important to get away from training sometimes and enjoy everything else,” she says.
