Taylor Gold went from rookie to Olympian in 2014, and with wins at the Copper Mountain Grand Prix and the Burton US Open, Gold is quickly making his mark in halfpipe snowboarding. Steamboat Springs was reason enough for Gold to spend his time honing the techniques of riding, but it wasn't until seeing the sport during the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City that he decided he wanted to be a competitive snowboarder when he was seven. When he's not on the snow, Gold loves to jump on the trampoline, skateboard and play guitar. Gold is taking time in South America this summer to focus on snowboarding and prepare for the upcoming season.

While he may be Mr. GS, the back-to-back World Champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist knows a thing or two about the men’s slalom scene too. Here’s Shred’s call on who to watch next February.

Felix Neureuther (GER) – He wins a lot of slaloms, is an all around good guy and can flat out turn it on when it’s big. He’s bound to be world champ. 

Marcel Hirscher (AUT) – He is the Olympic gold medalist from Sochi and basically a slalom podium guarantee every race. 

Henrik Kristoffersen (NOR) – He’s super young and has already won an Olympic medal in slalom (bronze). He’s young and should only get better. 

Mario Matt (AUT) – Plain and simply, he seems to get better with age. 

Andre Myhre (SWE) – Andre is super fun to watch ski. He has amazing speed and versatility.

You were sick the last time you raced on Birds of Prey and finished just off the podium in fourth. What is it about racing on home snow that brings out great performances?
The best part about racing in the U.S. is being in a comfortable environment. The crowd there is always incredible too and that helps get you amped up to go fast.

Describe the Birds of Prey track as it relates to some of the other classic venues?
We haven't raced slalom at BOP besides a makeup race a few years ago so it's hard to compare it to other venues. It's probably most similar to Zagreb in difficulty. But it's not very hard after the first few gates, which means you have to attack the whole way.

From lifelong friendships to powerful life lessons to everlasting memories of thrilling victories, there are many reasons for your kids to play sports.

As a parent, you can encourage your kids to participate in, or at least try, youth sports. With so many other factors and activities pulling them in different directions, it’s important to properly frame and discuss the many rewards of playing sports.

Liberty Mutual Insurance Play Positive sat down with U.S. Snowboarding standout Ryan Wachendorfer to get his thoughts on the importance of playing sports along with the life lessons he learned.

In our exclusive TAKE 5 interview Ryan told us that he believes the biggest life lesson taught by sports is that anything truly enjoyable or valuable must be earned in life – over time.
