      This Bristol Mountain Race Club grad racked up five top-15 NorAm results in his rookie season on the U.S. Ski Team. He then impressed coaches with a seventh-place finish at his first National Championships. At just 16 years old, Lillis was limited to NorAm events during the 2011 season. He turned the circuit into his own training ground with seven top-five finishes, three podiums and a win, finishing the season ranked second.

      A silver medal at the FIS Junior World Championships marked the end of another season of progression in 2012. His first World Cup top 10 came in Mont Gabriel in January, which earned him the 2012 World Cup Rookie of the Year award.

      The 2013 season was no rebuilding year for Lillis. Two NorAm wins, four NorAm podiums and two top-10 World Cup results proved Lillis has the consistency to make this Olympic season a memorable one.

      FIRST TRACKS
      A ski racer by the age of nine, Lillis’ attraction to the jumps and bumps eventually got him kicked off the race team. With the competitive juices still flowing, he turned to the moguls and aerials. After a few seasons of double timing, he narrowed it down to aerials. He spent two years sharpening his skills with Elite Aerial team in Lake Placid before he was named to the U.S. Ski Team.

      OFF THE SNOW
      Lillis enjoys longboarding, wakeboarding, waterskiing and inline skating. He also plans on pursuing a career in sports marketing.
