Markus Olimstad first stood on a snowboard when he was 14, and has made it his top priority ever since, taking Slopestyle and Big Air podiums as he's come up through the Norwegian Norgescup series and begun competing on the World Snowboard Tour. He aims to compete in both disciplines in the 2018 Olympics, but first he's hoping to contribute to an all-Norwegian podium at the debut of X Games Oslo.
