With immense talent and a healthy dose of charisma, Canadian Mark McMorris has been one of snowboarding's leading men since taking double gold in XG Slopestyle and Big Air in 2012. He repeated the feat in 2015, becoming the second snowboarder in history to earn double gold at a single event twice. He has earned a medal in 11 of 12 X Games starts (6 gold, 5 silver). Mark broke his right femur at the L.A. Air + Style in February 2016, but his comeback has been triumphant: He already has six competition starts this season and has made the podium at five of them (including two wins at the Dew Tour in December).
