With an Olympic bronze medal and some seriously stylish airs in his pocket, Scotty Lago is a household name. Lago totes around a collection of X Games medals in various disciplines, the latest of which was gold for best method in 2011, which he won with his jaw wired shut after a backcountry filming accident. With multi-disciplined talents, the Seabrook kid decided to compete in both halfpipe and slopestyle during 2012. That season, he took a win at the Toyota Big Air comp in Japan, which earned him an invite to the prestigious backcountry event Red Bull Supernatural.
After taking a step back from a number of competitions in the 2012 season, Lago proved his snowy prowess once again in 2013. During a highly competitive Grand Prix in Park City, Lago took second and then went on to take third at the FIS World Cup at the Olympic test venue in Sochi, Russia. In the 2014 season, Scotty continued to be a crowd favorite with the most stylish frontside 900 nose grab in the business, which happened to earn him a second-place finish at the Mammoth Mountain Grand Prix.
Scotty picked up snowboarding at a local tubing hill in Amesbury, Massachusetts. Since Mom and Dad "backed him from day one," he was able to move into competitions and eventually score a spot riding for U.S. Snowboarding.
OFF THE SNOW
Taking after Ted Nugent and in true New Hampshire style, Lago loves to hunt and fish, which explains why his favorite dish is "all types of seafood."
