Winter Park native Birk Irving is taking the freeskiing world by storm at the age of 14. A double threat in halfpipe and slopestyle, Irving has earned multiple Revolution Tour podiums and a USSA Junior National Championships title in halfpipe, which prove that this up-and-comer is serious about paving his road to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

The 2014 winter marked a great comeback year for Irving, who had been sidelined by a couple injuries the previous season. After making a full recovery, he was a force to be reckoned with on the Revolution Tour where he took second in halfpipe at the Seven Springs stop and a third place in halfpipe at the Sun Valley stop. He also placed 10th in halfpipe at the Aspen/Snowmass Open against some of the sport’s seasoned veterans and then went on to take the USSA Junior National Championships title in halfpipe. With such impressive results, Irving was invited to represent the U.S. on the FIS Junior World Championships Team in Italy, where he placed sixth in halfpipe.

Irving has a few goals for the near future, including competing in the Grand Prix, Dew Tour, and X Games, with the ultimate goal of going to the next Olympics.

FIRST TRACKS
Living at the base of Winter Park, Irving hails from a family of skiers who spend as much time skiing together as possible. With a father on ski patrol, a mom who coached alpine racing, and a sister who also competes in halfpipe and slopestyle, it is no wonder he took to skiing at an early age. Irving never had an interest in any other type of skiing other than park skiing. He started sliding rails at age five and did his first 360 that same year. He was determined to be a freeride skier, and when he got his first sponsor at age seven, he never looked back.

OFF THE SNOW
When not on snow, Irving enjoys the great outdoors of Colorado and spends his summers downhill mountain biking at Winter Park and fishing. He also spends free time bouncing on trampolines to keep in shape for skiing. In addition to his focus on skiing, Irving takes his studies seriously and starts most of his days by doing online classes before and after hitting the slopes. He has found the perfect balance between passion and education and maintains a 3.5 GPA.
