Mac Bohonnon was skiing before he turned two years old, so it’s safe to say he is right at home on skis. After getting his start at Stratton Mountain, he further built on his skill set in Dmitriy Kavunov’s Elite Aerial Development Program (EADP).

He says he owes all his success to his family. “My path to the U.S. Ski Team was long and rigorous, but very rewarding,” he says. “I couldn't have made it without the help of my current and previous coaches, and most importantly, my family and friends.”

The 2012 season proved to Bohonnon’s breakout year. Four NorAm podiums led to a career-high third-place ranking in the NorAm standings, and a bronze medal at U.S. Championships topped it off on a high note.

The next season wasn't much different. A string of eight top 10 NorAm and Europa Cup results proved that Bohonnon has the consistency necessary in the difficult sport of aerials. 

FIRST TRACKS
Bohonnon first started skiing when he was about one and a half years old thanks to parents that insisted all their children learn how to ski. It quickly became routine to spend the weekends at the family home in Vermont, where Bohonnon’s career as a skier began.

After a stint in the alpine gates, Bohonnon found his true calling. “After spending a few years in the alpine program, it was evident that all I wanted to do was build jumps on the side of the trails and hurl myself into the air,” he says. “My parents put me into the freestyle program at Bromley Mountain, and I progressed from there; from regional aerial and mogul competitions to living and training full time with the Elite Aerial Development Program in Lake Placid, NY.”

OFF THE SNOW
You can always catch Bohonnon listening to music away from the slopes. “I try to do as much as I can in the off season – road biking, water skiing, golf and hanging out with my family and friends,” he says.
