Austin began skiing at age 4 at Mountain Creek (NJ). By the end of his first day he skied from the top of the mountain without assistance. At age 6, after two years on skis, Austin began snowboarding. The first season of snowboarding took place at Ski Big Bear in PA. Austin was quickly in the terrain park hitting kickers, boxes and rails. It all came very naturally to him as he began skateboarding at age 4.

At age 7 (2005/06 season), Austin was accepted into the Shawnee Mt. Developmental Program. While in the program Austin impressed the coaches to the point of being invited to compete in slope style competitions with the competition travel team. Austin competed in three events winning one Gold and two Silver medals.

During the 05/06 season Austin spent over 30 days practicing or competing in terrain parks and half pipes. He competed in one event at Shawnee and two events at Mountain Creek. Of the 5 competitors within his age bracket Austin finished number 1 in the year end slope style points for the Mid-Atlantic Series.

During the 06/07 season (Age 8) Austin competed in many USASA sanctioned events as well as numerous rail jams. It was during the 06/07 season that Austin began to make his name. Austin competed at the Oakley/Buckman’s rail jam and placed second as an 8 year old in the 12 and under division. Austin competed in numerous other events, never placing outside of the finals. It was during this season as an 8 year old that Austin began to realize his potential and he became dedicated to the sport, spending over 45 days on the snow.

During the 07/08 season (Age 9) Austin competed in 10 events, located between Southern Vermont and Philadelphia including New York City’s Winterfest in Central Park. Of the 10 events Austin finished in first place 5 times and was a finalist in all 10, including a third place finish in the 15 and under Division at the Powers Series Rail Jam at Okemo Mt., VT. Early in the 07/08 season Austin was featured in the Pocono Record as one of the best young riders in the Poconos.

In April of 2008 Austin began trampoline training with Guinness World Record Holder Ken Kovach. Austin trains on the trampoline with and without his snowboard, learning and perfecting flips and twists. Since July Austin has performed with World Class trampolinists as part of the SKYRIDERS! acrobatic trampoline show, performing his snowboard maneuvers on the trampoline.

Austin completely dominated the competitions he was in during the 2008/2009 season. Out of the ten competitions he entered, he finished 1st in 9 of them. His slopestyle and halfpipe skills earned him the attention of even more sponsors and set him apart from the rest of his competitors.

Austin's most recent accomplishment during the 2010/2011 season was his 1st place win at USASA's Southern Vermont Series - Okemo Slopestyle & Superpipe. He placed first in the Slopestyle Breaker Boys Division (12 - 13) and the competition was steep. The Southern Vermont Series is one of the most competitive series in the country, drawing competitors from Stratton Mountain School, Killington Academy, Mount Snow Academy, etc. Congrats Austin and best of luck during the rest of the season!
