2017 was one for the books for McRae Williams. He netted his 3rd XG medal in Aspen (silver) before going on to win the World Championships in Sierra Nevada, Spain and then earning the year-end FIS Crystal Globe for slopestyle. To top it off, he was also nominated for Best Male Olympic Athlete of the Year at the 2017 Team USA Awards. The often underrated Williams attributes his success to a new mindset -- mindfulness. He created his own documentary called, "The Mindful Skier" that chronicles his 2017 season.
