Undoubtedly one of the biggest names in freeskiing, Simon Dumont began to make a name for himself at the age of 15. Just two years later he won his first Winter X Games Gold Medal and has remained one of the most fierce and talented competitors the sport has seen.

All on the heels of him busting out a huge triple cork in the Snowboard Big Air Contest at Winter X Games 15, the very first ever landed at Winter X, dazzling the amped up crowd on hand and grabbing the Gold medal.
