      BIOGRAPHY
      With seven X Games gold medals Nate Holland has enough precious metal to gild his driveway by now. Born and raised in northern Idaho, Holland developed a taste for adventure at a young age that has carried him throughout his career. A snowboardcross specialist, Nate defines the sports chaotic style by going all-out in every race. The 2012 winter was no different for Holland, earning his seventh X Games gold, and two World Cup podiums before bowing out with a broken shoulder blade.

      NATE SAYS
      I was satisfied with this past season, taking the X Games title back and claiming the national championship title. I had a good bid for overall cup title, but my broken clavicle knocked me back in points. I feel great and I’m looking forward to next season to defend those titles. I’m gearing towards the Olympics coming up. X Games is definitely my focus, but its time to start to focusing on the Olympics since they are in two years.

      FIRST TRACKS
      Nate was ripping the slopes of Schweitzer Mountain in a pair of Sorels and one of Burton's Performer Elite boards by the time he was eight years old. He knew he had to ride professionally after watching Shawn Farmer and Damian Sanders launch the legendary "fingers" of Squaw Valley in the classic snowboarding movie "Critical Condition."

      OFF THE SNOW
      Holland enjoys activities that keep him busy like dirt biking, fly fishing, mountain biking and wakeboarding.
