Matt Ladley, a product of the famed Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, has been a major addition to U.S. Snowboarding. Thanks to a Grand Prix podium, it only took Ladley a year to jump up to the pro team. Now he's a regular on the podium with his smooth double corks scoring big points at each contest.
In 2012 Ladley had a killer run on lock all season, which earned him second at the TTR World Snowboarding Championships, top-five results at both X Games Aspen and Europe, and third at the Killington Dew Tour stop.
Unfortunately, Ladley’s 2013 season ended with a minor shoulder injury, but not before he earned an invite to X Games Aspen and placed a very competitive seventh at the Burton European Open. Back from injury, Matt stepped back onto the podium again in 2014, earning an impressive third at the first Mammoth Grand Prix.
