Eric Willett put himself on the map with a silver-medal performance at his X Games debut in 2010. A Breckenridge native, Willett spent countless hours on a snowboard from a very early age, cruising the mountain with his younger brother. With a coveted spot on the Air+Style World Tour, Willett is sure to be a contender for a spot on the 2018 Olympic team when big air makes its Olympic debut in PyeongChang.
Six years after his X Games debut, Willett had a fantastic showing at X Games Aspen in 2016 against a highly competitive field. Finishing just off the podium in fourth, Willett proved that he has what it takes to go up against the best in the world. He also had a podium finish at the Mammoth stop of the U.S. Grand Prix (second) and finished in the top 10 at every stop of the Air + Style Tour.
Heading into the 2014 season, where slopestyle was scheduled to make its Olympic debut, Willet started strong with a ninth-place finish at the Breckenridge Dew Tour. On track to contend for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team, a crash at the U.S. Grand Prix a week later left him with a season-ending injury to his upper back. Willett returned to snow in 2015 and gained momentum throughout the season culminating in his first World Cup win as he led a U.S. men's slopestyle podium sweep at the Grand Prix finale in Park City, UT.
