Chris Laker, an Ohio-native, was 3 years old when his old man clipped him into skis and had him lap the backyard. Now a world-class slopestyle competitor, it’s clear these humble freeski beginnings paid off. A member of the U.S. Freeski Team, Laker lives and trains in Park City, Utah.
Known for stomping switch backflips and back-to-back double flips, his massive aerial stunts always impress. An active and dedicated competitor, Laker stays in shape in the off-season playing basketball and jumping on trampolines.
