Annalisa Drew was a member of the inagural Olympic halfpipe skiing team in 2014, finishing 9th at the Sochi Games. The East-Coast-turned-Colorado girl has been consistently climbing the ranks of freeskiing competition since 2010, with a multitude of major wins under her belt. She was the first woman to land a 1260 in the halfpipe, doing so at Buttermilk Mountain in 2013.
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 one, 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.
The 2013-2014 season was one to remember for Drew. Having placed consistently well in 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.
A successful 2015 season was capped with wins at the Aspen/Snowmass Freeskiing Open and the AFP World Tour Finals. In 2016 Drew earned her first X Games medal, a bronze at Aspen. She did so with a run that included a 1080 and back-to-back 900s. She then went on to finish second at the season-ending SFR Freestyle Tour in La Clusaz, France.
