      Someone who makes his U.S. Open debut at the age of 12 is bound to go places; Meet Sage Kotsenburg. The Park City native has been on snow for as long as he can remember and now spends most of his time beating out the competition on slopestyle courses around the globe.

      The winter of 2010 was truly a breakout season for Kotsenburg, who won a Dew Cup, took fifth at X Games Aspen and notched a silver medal at X Games Europe. The 2011 season was just as fast-paced, as he took bronze at Winter X Games in big air and a bronze at The Arctic Challenge.

      In 2012 Kotsenburg kept his momentum going, taking silver at X Games Aspen and second at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix in Mammoth. To top off the season, he was invited to the prestigious and unique Red Bull Supernatural event, which features man-made and natural features scattered throughout a backcountry venue.

      Kotsenburg saw two X Games invites in 2013 as well as a jump in his ranking on the World Snowboard Tour. He leaped up from 21st to an impressive 10th in the slopestyle world ranking. This big air specialist saw several podiums and will likely be seen at the exciting new Olympic venue in Sochi, Russia next year.

      SAGE SAYS
      I always love to snowboard, it’s one of my favorite things to do and this season was great. I got to travel to some really cool locations and got on some podiums. Next year you know I am going to be working hard to get on that U.S. Olympic team with my fellow teammates when slopestyle makes its Olympic debut.

      FIRST TRACKS
      Kotsenburg grew up with Park City Mountain Resort in his backyard. At the age of five, alongside his older brother Blaze, he first strapped on a snowboard. He had so much fun that he ditched the skis and has been riding ever since.

      OFF THE SNOW
      Kotsenburg is a road warrior and can be found traveling, playing on his X Box or hanging out with friends.
