@PeterOlenick finally captured his first X Games gold medal this year, cementing his place as one of skiing’s biggest [and we mean that literally- he’s very tall] stars. Peter’s finally getting respect wherever he goes- except for the Olive Garden, since Peter says that his favorite thing to get there is “kicked out.” Read the full interview to learn more about the speedo-wearing man of the hour.
Bio: This 25 year old pro skier has been on the competition circuit since 2002. In 2007 he wowed the crowd with his Whiskey Flip at the X Games, the first double pulled in the pipe, and took home the Bronze medal. In addition to his pipe prowess, this Colorado native can also hold his own on the slopestyle course. This was evident when he double medalled at the 2004 Winter X Games. This year, he won the X Games inaugural high air comp with a 24′ 11″ Alley Oop Flatspin.
