Olympic Slopestyle Champion Joss Christensen was honoured by the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association with the 2014 Freeskiing Athlete of the Year award.

Christensen (Park City, UT) has had his eyes set on the Olympics his whole life.

Slopestyle skiing was added to the Olympics for 2014, giving him the chance to live out his dream.

Christensen was the last named to the debut Olympic Team, selected on the basis of a stunning win on his home course at the final Visa U.S. Freeskiing Grand Prix.

But he turned into the team’s leader, winning the first gold medal for slopestyle skiing and leading the historic Team USA men's sweep.
