Young gun Abigale Hansen, or “Abi” as her friends call her, stepped up to the pro halfpipe skiing circuit for the 2014 season at the young age of 15. The Mammoth Lakes native, known for her amplitude in the pipe, made a name for herself on the freeskiing scene in 2012-2013 by bagging three podiums in halfpipe on the Revolution Tour as well as a third place in halfpipe at The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series at Northstar.

Her impressive results during her rookie debut earned her an invite to the 2014 Grand Prix and Dew Tour, which were qualification events for the U.S. Olympic Team. Hansen had a solid performance against the sport’s top pros at the Grand Prix, including a sixth in Park City, and she gained valuable competition experience for winters to come. Hansen returned to the Revolution tour later in the season and nabbed a first and second place at both Sun Valley stops, ending up second overall in the Revolution Tour halfpipe standings. Hansen is on a roll and has her sights locked on her lifelong goal to compete in the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang.

ABIGALE SAYS
I had a blast this past season, and I was lucky enough to be invited to The Dew Tour and all the Grand Prix events. I met new friends and was able to compete against the best in the world—although I was a little scared about being one of the youngest competing.

I am looking forward to what is in store for next season as well as all the new experiences that will come.

I am happy to be joining the U.S. Freeskiing Rookie Team, as it has been one of my long-time goals. I can't wait for all the opportunities to come as well as being able to meet new people from all over the world. It will be an amazing journey!

FIRST TRACKS
Hansen has skied for almost as long as she has been able to walk and has been competing for over half of her life. She started competing at age five at June Mountain and by age seven was participating in halfpipe, slopestyle, and skicross at Mammoth Mountain. In recent years, her halfpipe results have progressed and are proof that this 15 year old is a rising star on the freeskiing scene.

OFF THE SNOW
California girl Hansen is a member of the Mammoth Mountain Freeski Team and she works with the team year round. In the summer, she trains on trampolines and somehow fits in high school classes, competitive swimming, shooting, skateboarding, and downhill mountain biking into her busy schedule.
