The first snowboarder to land a triple cork (May 2010), Torstein is highly respected amongst his peers due to his style, innovation and technical ability. His XG resume -- three Big Air gold -- cements that status. His most recent gold came at Aspen 2013 with a switch backside triple cork 1440, the first in competition. The Norwegian founded shredbots.com with Mark McMorris and Eero Ettala. Their most recent feature is "Shredtopia," released in Nov. 2015. The outspoken, funny Horgmo has had slopestyle success at multiple major events but has no XG Slopestyle medals after 9 attempts. He comes to Aspen 2016 still recovering from a Sept. back injury. Quad corks are not in his immediate future.
