Willie Borm has been knocking on the door of slopestyle skiing for years, which is saying something since he’s only 17 years old. This young ripper is not only climbing the ranks in the slopestyle world, he also finds time to film ski movie segments.

He took sixth at the Dumont Cup in April 2012 and was ranked 22nd in the AFP overall slopestyle rankings out of 1,000 international competitors. On top of that, in 2011 he was listed as one of the top 20 athletes under 18 years old by Powder Magazine.

Borm had a great year in 2013. Thanks to his solid results, he earned an invite to Dew Tour and X Games Tignes. He then won the Aspen/Snowmass Freeskiing Open and took third at The North Face Park & Pipe Open Series in Whistler. He also held his own on the highly competitive World Cup circuit.

The 2014 season marked freeskiing’s inaugural Olympic qualifying period and Borm came into the season an Olympic hopeful. With invites to the Dew Tour and Grand Prix series, Borm held his own among the sport’s top pros and showed the world that he will be one to watch for years to come.

WILLIE SAYS
The 2013-2014 competition season was the sickest ever. It was so exciting to see slopestyle skiing debut at the Winter Olympics in Russia. I am looking forward to another exciting and intense competition season next year, and I expect that everyone will be throwing down and taking our sport the next level again. I can't wait!

FIRST TRACKS
At three years old, Borm got his start on the 300-foot bunny hill at Hyland Hills ski area in Bloomington, MN. It was there that he met Martin and Lewis Sunquist, who run the USSA Nybora Freestyle Team. Borm says, “I learned my first 12 at Nybora and Hyland Hills. I’m still on the team and ride at Hyland Hills as much as possible.” In 2010, at age 13, Borm won Teton Gravity Research's Grom Contest, which drew entries from over 30 kids under 17 all vying for a spot in the 2011 TGR movie.

OFF THE SNOW
When the snow melts, you’ll find Borm training on his trampoline, accessorizing his truck and playing video games.
