BIOGRAPHY
In 2010 Brown became the first skier at Winter X to win two golds in one trip - big air and slopestyle - vaulting him to freeskiing poster boy status. That same year, Brown won the Junior World Championships slopestyle, topped the overall AFP rankings and snagged silver in the Euro X slopestyle, all before his 19th birthday.

In 2011 he made the podium in the X Games Aspen big air, won the Dew Tour slopestyle title, took the AFP World Champs slopestyle title and was the first skier to ever land a triple cork 1440. 

In the 2012 season, he mined more X Games gold in big air at Aspen and in slopestyle at Euro X, not to mention two podiums at Dew Tour.

Brown saw ups and downs in the 2013 season. Having to battle through two separate broken ankle injuries, he still managed a solid fourth place finish at the opening U.S. Grand Prix at Copper as well as sixth in slopestyle and fourth in big air at X Games in Aspen. Brown is fully recovered and looking forward to finishing off a season of filming and training for Sochi 2014.

BOBBY SAYS
I learned a lot this year, battling through a pair of challenging injuries, but am still happy with what I was able to accomplish. Given the opportunities that lay ahead in 2013-2014, I couldn’t be more fired up about the possibilities.

FIRST TRACKS
Brown, a Colorado native, was nine years old when he got his start on skis. Growing up in the Denver suburbs, he would build ramps and jumps in his yard to simulate a terrain park. Brown started competing on snow at age 11 with Team Summit’s moguls team, but he spent most of his time in the terrain park. He credits the program and coaches for nurturing his passion for air during his younger years. In high school, Brown and his friends drove up to ski Summit County on weekends “no matter what.” He became a pro skier at 16 years old and graduated a semester early from high school in 2009. Brown then moved to Breckenridge and won the first ever Dew Tour Slopestyle, where he says, “it all took off.”

OFF THE SNOW
Like most pro skiers, Brown enjoys his downtime to the fullest. You can find him perfecting his latest trick on the trampolines or skating at the skate park with friends. He also appreciates and enjoys art.
