At 30, Taylor Seaton has dedicated his life to skiing. His latest project was filming a Colorado backcountry movie with John Spriggs; The Book of Pow
In 2017 he was named to the US Freeskiing team after meeting their qualifying criteria with two World Cup podiums. His goal now? Change the way halfpipe skiing has veered. In 2017 Taylor was the first to ever put down both way alley-oop 900’s in competition and that led to him being one of the only guys to podium at a world cup event or AFP platinum event in the last 4 years with a “double” trick being absent in his run. Whats Next? ” I have a lot more combo’s and technical fundamental tricks that were skipped over that I want to put down in competition.” Taylor says. Born in Boulder, Colorado when Taylor was 11 years old he and his family moved to the town of Avon, Colorado so he could pursue his skiing. Taylor grew up skiing Vail and Beaver Creek and is still a current resident of the Vail Valley. Taylor’s main focus is halfpipe, but he also has a love for slopestyle and backcountry skiing. Over the years Taylor has competed in the Dew Tour, Grand Prix events, World Cups all over the globe as well as the Winter X Games in Aspen, Tignes France, and Oslo Norway. He has also had the opportunity to ski in the more core events that include only the most unique and stylish skiers such as the Tanner Hall Invitational, Sammy C. Invitational, The B&E Invitational, Suzuki Nine Knights, Pipe Ground, Natural Games, 7Peaks Riverstyle, Freeski Playoffs, and the only indoor stadium event of its kind The White Festival.
