29 Age USA

BIOGRAPHY

Mt. Hood isn't a bad place to grow up, just ask Sammy Carlson. The park maestro grew up only a few minutes down the road in Tigard, Oregon. Being a local at the park and pipe summer camp mecca paid off, as Sammy started collecting big-time contest hardware by the age of 18 and went on to collect four X Games medals.

Perhaps more famously known for landing one of the first triple cork 1260s on skis, Carlson is renowned for super-progressive park skiing with an unreal rail presence. In recent years, however, his gaze has turned beyond the parks and resorts, to his favorite snow-covered playground: the backcountry. In 2013, he won an X Games gold medal in Real Ski Backcountry for his 90-second edit and he's been busy filming with Poor Boyz Productions for a project to be released in 2016.
