A Park City local, Joss Christensen picked up slopestyle and halfpipe skiing by living within paper-airplane distance from the best park features in the world. With his well-rounded bag of tricks, clean style and infectiously positive attitude, it’s no surprise that Christensen achieved eight podiums last winter – notably the Visa U.S. Freeskiing Grand Prix, the Aspen/Snowmass Open and AFP World Championships. Christensen hits both pipe and big air events, but his slopestyle runs are money and feature killer double corks in both directions. After battling and overcoming a knee injury in late 2012, Christensen was still able to make his rounds during the 2013 competition circuit. Taking third at The Dumont Cup (an AFP platinum-level event) in April, Christensen ended up placing fifth in the AFP Overall World Ranking.

- 2012 AFP World Championships, Whistler, Canada - 3rd
