Athlete Bio

Torstein is highly respected amongst his peers thanks to his style, innovation and technical ability on a snowboard. He was the first snowboarder to land the triple cork (May 2010). His switch backside triple cork 1440 -- the first in competition -- at X Games Aspen 2013 earned him his third Big Air gold medal, his fifth Big Air medal overall. The Norwegian runs a website (shredbots.com) with Mark McMorris, Eero Ettala and others and is constantly filming. The outspoken, funny Horgmo has had slopestyle success at multiple major events but is still looking for his first X Games Slopestyle medal after eight attempts.

You Don't Say?

  • Torstein has five X Games medals -- three gold and two silver, all from Big Air. He won X Games Aspen 2011 Big Air with the first triple invert landed in competition (though not a triple cork). He also landed snowboarding's first triple cork in May 2010 at the Folgefonna ski area on Norway's west coast. After 8 appearances, he's yet to medal in Slopestyle.
