About Oystein

Now one of the best contest skiers on the scene, Braaten earned a convincing Slopestyle gold at X Games Aspen 2017. He backed it up with a win in front of the home-country crowd at XG Norway. Now a two-time winner of the AFP slopestyle title (2016 and 2017), Braaten -- who is a native of the tiny Torpo, Norway (pop. 405!) -- also was nominated for a 2017 ESPY for Best Male Action Sports Athlete. He's favored to add to his medal collection at X Games Aspen 2018. Action sports runs in the family: Oystein's brother, Gjermund, has multiple X Games Snowboard appearances. Both brothers competed in the 2014 Sochi Games.
