With multiple wins on the Grand Prix Tour, a Dew Tour win, US Open title, two National titles and his first Olympic appearance in 2014, Taylor Gold is one of the brightest young stars in men’s halfpipe snowboarding. The Colorado native had his start at the age of seven with sister (and fellow professional halfpipe rider) Arielle in Steamboat Springs, CO. The 2013-2014 season was a breakout one for Gold, who won two Olympic qualifiers, securing himself a spot on the U.S. Olympic halfpipe team. Gold is known for his smooth, stylish methods and technical tricks like double Michaelchucks and frontside 1260s.

FIRST TRACKS
Growing up in Steamboat "Ski Town USA" Springs, CO put Gold near his sport from an early age; he started snowboarding with his sister, Arielle, at the age of seven. After seeing snowboarding in the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002, Gold joined the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. His first contest came two years later, when he competed in halfpipe, slopestyle, boardercross, slalom and giant slalom at a USASA event.  

OFF THE SNOW

When he's not on the snow, Gold loves to jump on the trampoline, skateboard and play guitar. He shares a condo with his sister in Breckenridge, CO.
