Since the early days of skiing in her backyard, Jen Hudak has dreamed of winning an Olympic gold medal. Two X Games gold medals, three U.S. Championships and two World Championship podiums later, it looks like Hudak will have a chance when halfpipe skiing makes its Olympic debut in 2014.
In 2010, she established herself as the premier U.S. halfpipe skier on the women's side, sweeping the X Games superpipe in both Aspen, CO and Tignes, France while also topping the overall AFP series rankings – the freeskiing equivalent to snagging a World Cup globe.
After suffering a torn ACL in early 2012, Hudak has made it her priority to get back on top of her game with cross-training and hearty gym sessions at the Center of Excellence in Park City, UT. In 2013, Hudak strategically made her comeback at X Games in Aspen, where she advanced to the finals and eased her way back into competition for the remainder of the season.
