Connecticut native Kiley McKinnon has only been competing in aerials for a few years, but she has already racked up an impressive list of accomplishments. Winter 2014 was a recovery year for McKinnon after she suffered a shoulder injury halfway through the season. But McKinnon came back in 2015 better than ever, scoring her first world cup podium at the season opener in Beijing. She never looked back, landing on the podium four more times and jumping to a silver medal at the 2015 FIS Freestyle Ski World Championships. McKinnon's consistent jumping allowed her to take home the World Cup overall title at the end of the season. She captured a handful of top-10 finished during teh 2016 season, including another podium in Beijing.

FIRST TRACKS
McKinnon first learned how to ski when she was around three years old. “About two years ago, a friend from my town, who also does aerials, told me I should try it out,” says McKinnon. “I went to Lake Placid, NY, to see what it was about and right away I knew it was what I wanted to do. Since then I’ve been training everyday and working hard to get to the point I am at today.”

OFF THE SNOW
Away from the slopes, McKinnon enjoys hanging out with friends and going to the beach. She also enjoys exercising and just relaxing at home.
