Taylor Gold has quickly become a leading man in men’s halfpipe snowboarding. Twenty-one year-old Gold, has already claimed multiple Grand Prix and Dew Tour wins, a US Open title, two National titles and has his first Olympic apperance. Gold got his start in Steamboat Springs, CO and quickly worked up the ranks going from a rookie rider to big-time contender in the 2014 season. In 2015, Gold built upon his legacy with back-to-back wins at the Sprint U.S.Copper Grand Prix at Copper Mountain and Dew Tour at Breckenridge and a second place finish at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix in Park City, UT. Gold is known for his smooth stylish methods and double Michaelchucks.

FIRST TRACKS
Steamboat Springs was reason enough for Gold to spend his time honing the techniques of riding, but it wasn't until seeing the sport during the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City that he decided he wanted to be a competitive snowboarder. He was seven.

OFF THE SNOW
When he's not on the snow, Gold loves to jump on the trampoline, skateboard and play guitar.
