Two-time X Games medalist Kotsenburg struck slopestyle Olympic gold at the 2014 Sochi Games, where he used style and creativity to best a triple-corking men's field. It was a surprise to everyone -- including Sage, who simply wants to snowboard on his own terms, contest or no. His own terms earned him an Olympic gold medal and worldwide fame after a post-Olympic media tour that included appearances on Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien and David Letterman. He also landed the cover of the January 2015 issue of Transworld Snowboarding. Kotsenburg calls Park City home and has his sights set on X Games gold in 2015; he has Slopestyle silver from 2012 and Big Air bronze from 2011.
- Sage, the Olympic gold medalist in slopestyle at Sochi 2014, is an X Games 2012 silver medalist who also one bronze at X Games in 2011. He has two second-place finishes and a win in Mammoth at the final three Olympic qualifiers earned his spot on the 2014 U.S. Olympic team.
