Hailing from Aspen, Colorado, Torin Yater-Wallace grew up with the X Games in his backyard. Every year he would watch the events from afar hoping to one day compete in the prestigious games. With the Rocky Mountains as his playground, Yater-Wallace began skiing before he could walk. His peers immediately recognized his talents, but he was still a long way from achieving his dreams of becoming a professional skier. Now at 17, Yater-Wallace has become a regular on the podium at X Games, Dew Tour and World Cup events and is considered a favorite heading into the Winter Olympics.
