Athlete Bio

After failing to crack the top five in three X Games appearances, Joss was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone, a box of Corn Flakes and The Late Show with David Letterman in 2014. That's the kind of attention one receives with an Olympic gold medal. The Park City local led an American sweep of the Olympic ski slopestyle podium after landing a switch rightside triple cork off the final jump. It was only his second major career win. Known for creative rail lines and an ability to throw big doubles and triples in the opposite direction, look for Christensen to be a threat for gold at Aspen 2015.

  • X Games Aspen 2015 will be Joss's fourth Slopestyle appearance with a best previous finish of sixth in Aspen 2014. He is the 2014 Olympic slopestyle gold medalist and a 2014 ESPY nominee for the Best Male Olympian. He earned the last discretionary spot on the U.S. Olympic Slopestyle team.
