Mogul skier Patrick Deneen got a break growing up in Washington. His father was part owner and general manager of a ski resort, so young Deneen was on skis before he was a year old. He started as an alpine racer, but kept watching freestyle skiers and eventually made the change to running bumps.
Deneen took home a third place podium at Deer Valley in 2015 before going on to the FIS Freestyle Ski and Snowboard World Championships in Kreischberg, Austria, where he finished just off the podium in fourth. After stepping back from compeition for injury, Deneen plans to be back in full force for the 2015-16 season.
