Former gymnast Heather McPhie came late to moguls, but she's been making up for lost time. In 2010, the Bozeman, Montana native found a new gear and accelerated to her first four career World Cup podiums, including one win in her current hometown of Park City, UT. Her breakout results earned her a trip to her first Olympics in Vancouver.
In 2012 McPhie became the first mogul skier to pick up a Red Bull sponsorship. She used her new wings in the 2012-13 season to add five more World Cup podiums, three of which were wins, to her skiing resume. McPhie went on to earn her second U.S. title in Heavenly, CA
All of this is great, but most importantly to me, I kept pushing myself and made great strides on the things I was focusing on. I completed a back full and D-spin in the same run at World Championships, which was a first for me, and a first for the sport at World Championships for women. I completed one of my more difficult tricks (either a back full or D-spin) at every single event. I love the energy and excitement I feel from pushing my limits. My skiing was more consistent, as well as my time, so I feel I made gains in all areas. I'm looking forward to another summer of training and continuing to work on my individual goals next season!
