Willie Borm burst onto the competitve slopestyle scene at 15 years old when he won the Aspen Open in 2013. He earned an invite that year to Dew Tour and X Games Tignes.
In 2015 Borm scored a double win at the Mammoth Mountain stop of the Revolution Tour (big air and slopestyle) and repeated his win at the Aspen Open. In 2016 Borm had a great showing with a sixth-place finish at the Mammoth U.S. Grand Prix/FIS World Cup before suffering a season-ending ACL injury at the Silvaplana World Cup event. Now on the mend and focused on recovery, watch for Borm to return to the top of his game in time for a run at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.
At three years old, Borm got his start on the 300-foot bunny hill at Hyland Hills ski area in Bloomington, MN. It was there that he met Martin and Lewis Sunquist, who run the USSA Nybora Freestyle Team. Borm says, “I learned my first 12 at Nybora and Hyland Hills. I’m still on the team and ride at Hyland Hills as much as possible.” In 2010, at age 13, Borm won Teton Gravity Research's Grom Contest, which drew entries from over 30 kids under 17 all vying for a spot in the 2011 TGR movie.
OFF THE SNOW
When the snow melts, you’ll find Borm training on his trampoline, accessorizing his truck and playing video games.
