Red's Olympic Journey

Red comes from a large, tight-knit family and is one of eight children. When he was 7, the family moved from Ohio to Colorado. Although he learned how to snowboard at the age of 2, the mountains of Colorado provided Red the perfect backdrop to becoming a snowboarding star. In 2018 in PyeongChang, Red became the youngest American to medal in a snowboarding event at the Olympics, taking gold in the slopestyle event at just 17 years old.

There are so many people who motivate me. My brothers continue to motivate me. Advancing the sport motivates me. Being the best I can be motivates me.

Since winning gold, Red has been busy. In 2019, he and his mother created Red’s Backyard, a group of free-to-low-cost terrain parks inspired by the family’s homemade rail park in their backyard, where Red practiced growing up. To Red, they’re an affordable way for kids to have access to snowboarding and skiing. He hopes to inspire kids who never thought they’d be able to snowboard, to have the chance as he did.

RED'S TUNDRA

Power that delivers.

“Without my 4WD Tundra, I wouldn’t be able to carry my sleds into the backcountry to film. And because of its 10,000-lb. tow capacity, I can even bring a film crew and tow 4 additional sleds.”

Smart tech. From the driver’s seat.

“The back-up camera is one of my favorite features. It allows me to be able to hitch up my trailer on my own.”
