Ohio born and bred, Chris Laker has come a long way. Now residing in Park City to focus on his skiing, he’s got some of freeskiing’s most difficult tricks on lock. The 2011-12 season had Laker constantly knocking on the door to the podium, taking fifth at the VISA U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth and fourth at the Dew Tour Snowbasin stop. He’s due to land on the podium.

After rehabbing his knee back into shape, Laker was set to have a great 2013 season, but he suffered an additional knee injury. Since then he has been working hard to get back on the slopes, and there is no doubt he will be back soon.

CHRIS SAYS
Being away from skiing for the past year has been tough, but my knee is healing up correctly now and I will be back better than ever for this upcoming season. I just plan on skiing a ton and really enjoy everything that it has to offer.

FIRST TRACKS
Laker got his start young, at three years old to be exact. His Dad taught him how to ski in his backyard in Ohio.

OFF THE SNOW
Always looking to improve his skills, Laker spends his time staying active on the trampoline and playing basketball.
