Hometown Hero has High Hopes in South Korea

Whitefish skier Maggie Voisin created quite a stir when she was selected as the youngest American Olympian to compete at the Sochi Winter Games at age 15. Alas, our hometown hero was injured in training and was not be able to compete in the Slopestye event. Her fun-loving attitude is such a fitting reflection of a town that places high-value on the benefits of outdoor adventure and winter recreation. We are proud of Maggie and will be cheering for her as she travels to South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games! She is just coming of a gold medal win at the 2018 XGames in Aspen--the first American woman to ever win XGames Gold!!

Maggie Voisin was born and raised in Whitefish, Montana and started skiing when she was three years old. She and her twin brother Tucker share the love of skiing with her parents Kristen and M. Truby, and siblings Michael and Kelsey. Her parents put her on skis when she was three years old and she has been laughing ever since. She joined the Whitefish Mountain Resort freestyle team when she was ten and won the USASA national slopestyle championship in her age group when she was 12. She won the USSA junior national championship at age 13. At age 14, she won the WSI/AFP World Championships in Whistler, moved to Park City to train with the Axis Freeride team, was invited to compete in the XGames, was named “Slopestyle Rookie of the Year” by ESPN, and joined US Freeskiing Slopestyle Team as the youngest skier.

Slopestyle tests a skier's ability to handle a variety of terrain by executing freestyle maneuvers down a course. Each course is filled with features including rails, jibs, hips and a variety of jumps allowing riders to combine big air and technical tricks into one run. Competitors are scored in an overall impression judging format on amplitude, execution, difficulty of line, landing and use of the course.
