The often underrated McRae Williams has had no problem stepping up on skiing's biggest slopestyle stages, including gold at Tignes 2013, his second X Games appearance. In 2015, he landed on the podium at four major slopestyle comps before finishing first in the 2015 AFP rankings for slopestyle. A bruised left heel hampered his 2016 season (he only podiumed once (2nd) at the Mammoth Grand Prix) but don't count him out in 2017. Williams has a trick combo that none of the other skiers have coming into Aspen 2017: a switch left triple 1440, into a switch rightside triple 1440.
