Chris Corning Featured In Forbes
Seven-time FIS Crystal Globe champion and U.S. Snowboard Pro Team member Chris Corning was recently featured in a Forbes.com article by Michelle Bruton, where he discussed his career, navigating the Covid-19 landscape, and his aspirations for the 2020-21 competition season. Chris has been a staple on FIS World Cup, X Games, Dew Tour, and U.S. Open podiums for years. Although he's only 21-years-old, he has been riding at a professional level since he was 15, and it's clear he has learned a lot from his experiences.
Chris's dedication and hard work has certainly paid off. Over his career, Chris has earned three slopestyle crystal globes, two big air globes, and two park and pipe overall globes. In addition, he has earned eight World Cup victories and 14 podiums in 27 career starts. Last season, he tied Janne Korpi for the most men's crystal globes ever in park and pipe World Cup history.
“There are a few people around us who know what we put into it," said Chris. "I think it’s not put out there how hard we actually work."
