A rising talent since she was seven, Ty Walker has been on a steady climb up the ranks since her debut on the slopestyle scene. Though she struggled with injury in 2016, abbreviating her season, she still managed an eighth-place finish at the Mammoth Mountain stop of the U.S. Grand Prix. A 2014 Olympian, Ty represented the United States on it's inagural snowboard slopestyle team.

Walker came into the 2014 season strong, landing just shy of the podium in fourth place at the U.S. Grand Prix in Copper. Then she pegged down a third-place finish at the first U.S. Grand Prix in Mammoth and secured her spot on the first Olympic slopestyle snowboarding team. A badly bruised heel from a crash during practice kept Walker from riding to her potential on the Olympic stage, but this pint-sized young gun will put that Olympic experience in the bank as she gears up for PyeongChang.

In 2015, Walker won the very first women's snowboard big air World Cup event in Istanbul. With big air slated to make it's Olympic debut in South Korea, Walker has an excellent chance to score Olympic gold in 2018.

FIRST TRACKS
Ty was raised in a family that loved to spend time on skis. They loved it so much the whole family would travel from their Long Island, NY home to Vermont every other weekend in order to spend time on snow. It wasn't long after she first saw snowboarding that Walker got the bug. After strapping into her first snowboard, she never looked back.

OFF THE SNOW
When she's not riding, Walker is a straight-A student at Brown University who likes hanging out with her friends, playing field hockey and jumping on her trampoline.
