Skiing before he turned two years old, Mac Bohonnon is right at home on the snow. 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 was a breakout year for Bohonnon, proving his strength on the aerials circuit. Four NorAm podiums led to a career-high third-place ranking. A bronze medal at the National Championships topped it off on a high note.

2013 wasn't much different, and lead the way to a phenomenal 2014 season, when he earned a second-place finish in Val St. Come. That game-changing result punched his ticket to the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Competing against athletes nearly twice his age, Bohonnon produced stellar jump after jump and earned a fifth-place finish at his first Olympic berth–at only 19 years old.

FIRST TRACKS
Bohonnon first started skiing when he was about one and a half years old under parents who insisted that all their children learn 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.
