When you grow up in the town where the U.S. Aerials Team trains, inspiration isn’t hard to find. Park City, UT, native Madison Olsen got her start on the moguls slope, but the monster aerials jump soon caught her eye and a dream was born. “Getting to watching the U.S. Ski Team train and compete, I decided that I wanted to pursue the goal of making the national team and to hopefully one day go to the Olympics,” says Olsen.

The 2012 season saw Olsen spread her wings on the NorAm Tour with three wins and three more podiums, earning her a second-place NorAm ranking. She ended her season with a first-place finish at her U.S. Championships debut.

The 2013 season was all about the World Cup for Olsen, who snagged three top-ten results and a top 20 at World Championships in Voss, Norway. In 2014 Olsen earned a seventh at Jr. World Championships and a fourth at U.S. Championships.

FIRST TRACKS
Growing up in the ski mecca of Park City, UT, Olsen started skiing at the age of two. At 12 years old she started competing in moguls and decided to fully switch to aerials when she was 14.

OFF THE SNOW
When Olsen is off the slopes, she is usually spending time with either her teammates or friends from school. “It's important to get away from training sometimes and enjoy everything else,” she says.
