Faye Gulini first started riding at Snowbird, UT when she was nine years old. She didn't wait long before taking to the snowboardcross course, however, racing in her first SBX event at age 10 in Jackson Hole, WY. Five years later Gulini moved to Vail, CO to pursue her Olympic dream. Gulini's ascent to success was then swift, as she landed the results she needed for a spot on the 2010 Olympic snowboardcross team.

Gulini then rode well enough in 2011 to earn a spot on her first World Championships team in both snowboardcross and slopestyle. A top 10 at the X Games Aspen in 2011 and a third at U.S. Champs cemented Gulini as a key influence in the sport. A knee injury in 2012 put her season on hold, but then she soared into second at the 2012 Canyons Resort Sprint U.S. Grand Prix. She followed up in 2013 by landing five World Cup’s top 10s, including an eighth at the Olympic test event in Sochi, and taking the U.S. title at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Canyons.

The 2014 Olympic season saw Gulini qualify for her second Olympic snowboardcross team after her top-10 World Cup finish at Lake Louise. A sixth-place finish at the X Games Aspen geared her up for Sochi, where she pulled out her best Olympic finish to date, landing just off the podium in fourth.

FAYE SAYS
I’m happy with the way Sochi went. I had a tough season leading up to the Olympics. On the course it kind of seemed just staying on your feet was important and I was able to do that pretty consistently. I’m happy with fourth. It’s the Olympics, but being on the podium would have been nice. 

FIRST TRACKS
Gulini started riding at Snowbird with her siblings and friends. She and her friends couldn't get enough of the sport, riding together and racing each other at every opportunity.

OFF THE SNOW
When not snowboarding, Gulini enjoys swimming in lakes and the ocean.
