      This Bristol Mountain Race Club product racked up five top-15 NorAm results in his rookie season on the U.S. Ski Team. He then impressed coaches with a seventh-place finish at his first U.S. Championships. Being just 16 years old, Lillis was limited to NorAm events during the 2011 season. He turned the circuit into his own training ground with seven top-five finishes, three podiums and a win, finishing the season ranked second.

      A silver medal at the FIS Junior World Championships marked the end of another season of progress in 2012. His first World Cup top-10 came in Mont Gabriel, Canada, and earned him the 2012 World Cup Rookie of the Year award.

      Winter 2013 was no rebuilding year for Lillis. Two NorAm wins, four NorAm podiums and two top-ten World Cup results propelled him into a strong 2014 season. Lillis continued to progress and earned a career-best fourth at the pristine Deer Valley site in addition to three other top-20 results in 2014.

      FIRST TRACKS
      A ski racer by the age of nine, Lillis’ attraction to the jumps and bumps eventually led to his being kicked off his race team. With the competitive juices still flowing, he turned to the moguls and aerials. After a few seasons of moguls and aerials, he narrowed it down to aerials. After two-plus years of sharpening his skills with Elite Aerial team in Lake Placid, he was named to the U.S. Ski Team.

      OFF THE SNOW
      Lillis enjoys long boarding, wake boarding, water skiing and inline skating. He also plans on pursuing a career in sports marketing.
