"The best part of skiing for me going out and having fun with my friends. I'm motivated by wanting to promote and push women's skiing. I also love learning new things.

I started skiing on my second birthday at Sierra at Tahoe. I raced until I was 13 in all the programs at my mountain; Rippers, Buddy Werner and then the foundation team. I switched to free ride at 13 on the foundation team, but still raced in high school for fun. I competed in USSA and USASA. I got selected for the US Team 3 years ago after getting a podium at X games. By then I was doing all the bigger contests which led to 2 golds at the X Games and the AFP title in 2013 and 2014. All of a sudden, it was the Olympics!

Bollé has been super supportive and they make great products. I love my B. Wild helmet. It's super light and effective. I also of course like my Olympic Gravity goggles the best; Everyone wants them!"

The newest addition to Team Bollé, Maddie Bowman, is competing in Freeskiing, the Winter Olympics' newest discipline. With three X Games medals, 2 Dew Tour Wins and several Grand Prix wins, Maddie is the youngest of the three American medal hopefuls in the Women's Halfpipe event. Maddie frequently throws down two 900s in her run which is certainly a big factor in her continued success.

Because Maddie needs the best possible view of the course to pull of twin 900s, she is making her debut on the world's biggest stage wearing the Bollé Gravity goggle. In that extra weight is the enemy of the kind of amplitude required to execute the big tricks, Maddie's helmet is the extremely light Bollé B-Wild, which - despite a minimum of grams - has a full complement of comfort features including: Click-to-Fit system and adjustable vents.
