      At just 19 years old, New Jersey’s Mike Rossi has an impressive résumé of NorAm success. He had seven top-10 NorAm results (including two podiums) under his belt coming into the 2011 season. Rossi then found a new gear and captured the 2011 overall title with his first two wins and three other podiums. He proved he could hang with the World Cup crowd by winning a bronze medal at U.S. Championships.

      The 2012 season brought Rossi yet another opportunity to expand on his portfolio. He started by raking in six NorAm podiums, including two wins, and then by taking the silver medal at the U.S. National Championships.

      However, the 2013 season was definitely Rossi's breakout year. The highlight came at beloved Deer Valley, where he landed a third-place finish, the first World Cup podium of his young career. Rossi finished the season with five top-15 results to catapult him from the C-team to the B-team.

      FIRST TRACKS
      Rossi learned to ski when he was four, but never skied that much until he was recruited for aerials. “I tried a water ramp camp in Park City and ended up being pretty good at the sport,” he says. “I trained that summer for a few days, and the next summer I moved to Park City to continue the sport. I've been on my way ever since.”

      Off THE SNOW
      Rossi’s off-snow hobbies include playing guitar, writing music and recording songs.
