Biography

Gus Kenworthy was one of two skiers to take on three disciplines during the 2012 Winter X Games. Finishing 4th in slopestyle, 5th in big air, and 14th in superpipe, Gus went from “real’ good skier among industry folk” status, to household name. Gus again competed in all three disciplines this year at the 2013 X Games Aspen. What does that tell you? He’s one of the most well rounded park skiers on the planet. You can oftentimes find him skiing next to one of his best friends, Bobby Brown, at Breckenridge while training and preparing for upcoming competitions.
