Gus Kenworthy is a freeski phenom who learned to ski in the steep and deep powder in his hometown of Telluride, Colorado. His natural aptitude on skis, matched with his access to extreme ski terrain in southwest Colorado, has allowed Kenworthy to emerge as one of the best overall freeskiers in the world.
A fierce big air, slopestyle and halfpipe competitor, Kenworthy is the definition of versatile. With a deep bag of tricks—which include switch double cork 1620s, switch rightside double rodeo 1080s and switch double rodeo 900s—Kenworthy is always progressing the sport.
Kenworthy won silver at the 2014 Winter Olympics, where he competed in the debut of the sport in slopestyle.
A committed and dedicated athlete, Kenworthy spends his off-season training for the upcoming season. But when he does have some free time, you can find Kenworthy skateboarding.
