Montana native Darian Stevens is a double-threat skier that specializes in both halfpipe and slopestyle. Her breakthrough season in 2011-2012 included an impressive sixth-place slopestyle finish at the U.S. Grand Prix/FIS World Cup against some of the best competitors in the world. Stevens also fared well on the U.S. Revolution Tour, taking second in slopestyle and fourth in halfpipe at the Northstar-at-Tahoe stop.
After recovering from some injuries that sidelined her for the 2013 season, Stevens came in hot to the 2014 season as an Olympic hopeful in slopestyle. With an invite to the Dew Tour and Grand Prix events in hand, Stevens put herself in contention for a spot on the inaugural U.S. Olympic slopestyle team with a second-place finish at the Grand Prix in Copper. She finished out the Olympic qualifying series with top-ten results at the Dew Tour and the Park City Grand Prix. Those results earned her an invite to her first X Games in Aspen, where she placed seventh in slopestyle against the sport’s top pros. She capped her season off with a second place in slopestyle at the SFR Tour in France and finished seventh in slopestyle on the AFP world ranking list for 2014, proving that she is here to stay.
In 2015, Stevens again received an invitation to compete at X Games Aspen. Though she finished eighth in her second appearance, she also suffered a season-ending ACL injury. When Stevens clicks back into her skis for the competition she'll have her eyes set on the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.
Stevens first started skiing at the age of four when her dad showed her the ropes at Snowbowl, MT. She started out competing in moguls before she discovered that slopestyle was her calling. She made the switch to freeskiing at age 14 and hasn’t looked back.
