Annalisa Drew is one of those rare-breed, crossover athletes, but she doesn’t just compete in halfpipe and slopestyle, she excels. The 2013-2014 season was one to remember for Drew. Having placed consistently well in the Grand Prix, the Olympic qualifying series, the coaches awarded her the coveted discretionary spot to be on the inaugural U.S. Olympic halfpipe team. Under the bright Sochi lights of the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, Drew put down a solid first run in the finals, which included one of the only 1080’s of the night. Unfortunately, she fell during her second run while attempting a 1260 and finished ninth. Smiling from ear to ear at the bottom of the course, Drew was thrilled to be part of her sport’s history.

Drew first made a name for herself with nine podiums during the 2011-2012 season, including podiums at the Aspen/Snowmass Open and USSA’s U.S. Revolution Tour. In 2013 Drew got invites to X Games Aspen and Tignes, where she debuted her 1260 in the halfpipe. Even though she didn’t land it, she made history becoming the first woman to attempt one in competition, which demonstrates her passion for progression. She also took the win at the North Face Park & Pipe Open Series in Whistler.

ANNALISA SAYS
This season I have had some of the craziest ups and downs. From making the Olympic Team to not getting an invite to X-Games, this season was all about growing as a competitive athlete and as a person outside of skiing. Going to the Olympics this year, and being apart of the first-ever U.S. Freeskiing Halfpipe Team was such an honor. I still have trouble putting my experience at the Games into words. I'm wicked excited for the change of pace in the circuit next season. And I am looking forward to jumping back into freeskiing as a whole sport (slopestyle and halfpipe) and not just being a halfpipe skier.

FIRST TRACKS
It all started when Drew was three years old at Loon Mountain, NH. When she was four, she was an excellent figure skater and practiced five days a week. She eventually joined the Loon Freestyle Team when she was in junior high. The figure skating paid off, because her jumps and spins have helped her feel comfortable in the air when skiing.

OFF THE SNOW
Although rarely off the snow, Drew likes wakeboarding and playing any kind of sport when she has the chance. She played soccer, lacrosse, and hockey in high school and still enjoys them. Drew’s online college courses also keep her busy.
