      The multi-talented Lyman Currier competes in halfpipe, slopestyle, and big air and has taken the world by storm. Making waves on the rookie circuit during the 2012 and 2013 seasons, Currier landed himself a spot on the inaugural U.S. Olympic halfpipe team in 2014.

      Coming in hot to the 2014 Olympic qualifying series, Currier bagged three podium finishes, including the win at the Park City Grand Prix, and earned his Olympic spot through objective criteria. Following in the footsteps of his father, David Currier, who was an Olympic Alpine skier in 1972, Lyman represented his country at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games for his sport’s debut. Under bright lights and snowy skies, Currier suffered a blown ACL during the qualifying round, putting his Olympic gold dreams on hold for another four years. With so many accomplishments under his belt at 19 years of age, the world can expect to see more of Lyman Currier.

      Currier joined the U.S. Freeskiing Rookie Team in 2012, and after recovering from a knee injury later that year; he hopped right back to where he left off. In 2013 he took first in halfpipe at The North Face Park & Pipe Open Series at Northstar. He then went on to take first in slopestyle at the FIS World Cup Finals in Sierra Nevada, Spain.

      FIRST TRACKS
      Currier first learned to ski in 1996 when he was 18 months old and when he wasn’t stuck in daycare at Beaver Creek. Although still in diapers, his parents found the smallest boots available, and he was a little ripper by the time he got into ski school at three years old.

      OFF THE SNOW
      In the summertime you’ll find Currier with his Boulder crew of friends playing basketball, training and listening to music. He also enjoys travel, culture and food.
