Forget the future, Chloe Kim, 16, is the now of women's halfpipe riding. She blew minds in 2016, earning two X Games gold (Aspen and Oslo) and made history at the Park City Grand Prix by landing back-to-back 1080s, scoring a perfect 100 (the first time either has been done by a woman). A tri-lingual, first-generation American, Chloe has worked hard to achieve success: At age 8, she was crossing country lines atop glaciers to train in a European halfpipe. Off snow, she's a SoCal girly-girl teen who enjoys nothing more than clothes, manicures and swapping out the bright blues, pinks and purples of her hair. But perhaps it's time to stop talking about Chloe's teen tendencies and talk about how the four-time XG medalist is on her way to being one of the most important snowboarders in history.
