Summary Profile

Kingsbury took up mogul skiing at the age of eight, after learning to ski on the slopes of Quebec’s Laurentian Mountains. From  the moment he burst onto the international scene at the age of just 18, Kingsbury had Olympic glory in his sights.

He won his first freestyle and overall World Cup titles in 2012 at the age of 19. The following season Kingsbury set a new record of 19 consecutive top-three finishes, including 13 wins.

Kingsbury proudly stood alongside fellow Canadian icon Alex Bilodeau on the podium in Sochi with a 2014 Olympic silver medal as Canadians finished 1-2 during the competition. Four years later, Kingsbury had the fairy-tale ending to an outstanding year on the World Cup circuit, winning Olympic gold in PyeongChang. 

He quickly proved himself to be a prolific competitor squarely focused on success. A combination of hard work, focused mindset and enjoyment of his craft has culminated in Kingsbury’s unprecedented success on the slopes.
