The list of accomplishments for this two-time Olympic gold medalist speaks for itself. In 2006 Wescott solidified his spot in snowboardcross history when he became the first man to win Olympic gold in his sport, only to repeat his performance in 2010. Competing only four times in 2011, Wescott took his third-career World Championship silver and another World Cup win. However, his constant quest for first descents on big mountains truly define Wescott’s career. Annual spring trips to Alaska's Chugach Mountains and the shores of Costa Rica keep life in perspective for the most influential man in snowboardcross.
In 2012 Wescott suffered a shoulder injury that left him out for the season, but he came back strong with a win at the Telluride World Cup to kick-start a solid season. In April, while filming for Warren Miller in Alaska, Wescott suffered a knee injury that sidelined him until December and ultimately cost him his third trip the Olympics. But now he is back on his board and back on track filming another video part and gearing up for the 2015 season.
