Matt Ladley, a product of the famed Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, has been a major addition to U.S. Snowboarding. Thanks to a Grand Prix podium, it only took Ladley a year to jump up to the pro team. Now he's a regular on the podium with his smooth double corks scoring big points at each contest.

In 2012 Ladley had a killer run on lock all season, which earned him second at the TTR World Snowboarding Championships, top-five results at both X Games Aspen and Europe, and third at the Killington Dew Tour stop.

Unfortunately, Ladley’s 2013 season ended with a minor shoulder injury, but not before he earned an invite to X Games Aspen and placed a very competitive seventh at the Burton European Open. Back from injury, Matt stepped back onto the podium again in 2014, earning an impressive third at the first Mammoth Grand Prix.

I’m happy with a lot of the riding I did early on, being a part of the most heated halfpipe contest ever at the Mammoth Grand Prix and getting third there. It was a bummer to hurt my ankle at the last Olympic qualifier, but now I’m just looking forward to getting back on snow this summer and getting fired up for next year’s contest season. 

Ladley learned how to ride from Chris Saponaro, a ski instructor in Telluride, CO. He spent the next few years riding near Chicago at Raging Buffalo before moving to Steamboat when he was 11. He then started training with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club before jumping up to U.S. Snowboarding.

Come summertime, look for Ladley on his skateboard or in the water surfing. He enjoys climbing and backpacking too.
