Steamboat Springs native Mick Deirdorff started racing snowboardcross at ten years old and has been working his way up the pro ranks ever since. With a career-high World Cup finish at La Molina in 2015 (fifth) and a sixth-place finish at Feldberg in 2016, Dierdorff is on the come up.
His second season with U.S. Snowboarding, Dierdorff calls 2016 a breakthrough season. In addition to making the World Cup final at Feldberg, he took second place at the USASA Championships to finish off the season.
With his eyes dead set on the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, watch for this 25-year-old to continue his upward trajectory in the rankings.
Dierdorff's snow story starts as a ski racer, but when he tried snowboarding "for fun" at the age of ten, he never looked back.
OFF THE SNOW
When he isn't strength training, Dierdorff frames houses for a living. He's an outdoors guy and loves to camp, fish, hike, hunt, mountain bike and play golf. He's also studying to complete a degree in business at the University of Utah.
