Ross Powers Speaker Profile
Ross Powers Biography
Ross Powers was born February 10, 1979 and is a world champion halfpipe snowboarder from Peru, Vermont. His home mountain, though regularly advertised as Stratton Mountain Resort is actually Bromley Mountain where his mother still works. He led the U.S. sweep in the 2002 Winter Olympics men's halfpipe competition, one day after his 23rd birthday. This is the first time the Americans have swept a Winter Olympic event since the men's figure skaters did in 1956. Powers, with a score of 46.1, dominated the competition.
During his final run, Powers dropped in and aired out with an 18 foot method grab (a world record at that time), and followed up with two McTwists, a cab 720 indy grab, a frontside 720 indy grab and a switch frontside air.
Powers is one of the most high profile figures on the halfpipe snowboard circuit. He regularly competes in such events as the US and European Opens of Snowboarding, the Vans Triple Crown (now known simply as the Vans Cup), and the X-Games. During the 2004/2005 season, Ross won the Mt. Bachelor Grand Prix event and went on to be the overall champion for the series. Powers is the Snowboard Ambassador at Okemo Mountain Resort, and currently resides in Ludlow, Vermont with his wife and daughters, Victoria and Meredith.
