About Tiril

After missing XG Aspen 2014 and 2015, the talented Norwegian skier scored silver at Aspen 2016. At Aspen 2013, when the focus was on Kaya Turski's quest for the four-peat, Tiril, then 17, took gold as a rookie. Six weeks later, she earned silver at XG Tignes. By year's end, she finished second overall in the AFP rankings for slopestyle. A favorite for gold at both Aspen and Sochi in 2014, Tiril tore her left ACL in Dec. 2013 and missed the season. She also missed XG Aspen 2015. In Feb. 2015, she returned to competition and has made the podium in 9 of 10 events since (as of Feb. 15th, 2016).
