When your older sister and brother are both legitimate professional freeskiers in their own right, your skiing tends to grow up a little quicker. Just ask Andri Ragettli, the teenager who threw the first back-to-back triple corks in an X Games slopestyle competition as a 16-year-old rookie. While he didn’t podium in his X Games debut, the Swiss skier has been collecting World Cup podiums over the past few seasons, and added a crystal globe to the trophy case with his 2016 World Cup overall title in slopestyle. Ragettli also competes in big air, and finished second in last season’s Fenway Big Air, a stop on the U.S. Grand Prix.
