Holden’s Bio

Holden Bradford

My name is Holden Bradford, and I am a 17-year-old freeride skier and outdoor enthusiast from Crested Butte, Colorado. I have grown up surrounded by skiing and the outdoors. I started skiing at the age of 18 months old, with my dad being a ski patroller, I grew up going to work with him. The ski hill was my daycare. Over the years skiing has become my greatest passion. I joined a team and started competing at age 6. Since then my love for skiing has shaped my life in unimaginable ways, it has provided me with opportunities I never could have imagined, and more importantly connected me with a community, a family, of loving people. This coming year I plan to compete on the IFSA jr. circuit, in addition, I will be traveling to Kappl Austria for the Freeride Jr. World Championships.
