Cody Winters


Starting with the Dec. 8, 2018, NorAm competition in Steamboat Springs, Cody had a second-place showing in the parallel giant slalom and third-place showing in the parallel slalom. Cody went to Buck Hill, Minnesota, a week later on Dec. 14, 2018, to take home his first NorAm win in the parallel slalom and a junior victory the day after. He won the NorAm parallel slalom again two days later. The trend continued until Cody received a second overall placing on the NorAm tour, establishing himself as one of the best in the U.S. and Canada as well as the top U.S. finisher.

He also competed at the World Championships in Park City, Utah, and the Junior World Championships in Slovenia. Cody placed 22nd in the parallel slalom, a standout performance for his first go-round. But the biggest benefit was being observant. Cody watched how the best prepared, rode and even waxed their boards. He turned around two months later to take seventh in the parallel slalom at the Junior World Championships, the best of any U.S. snowboarder and his best finish out of his three appearances.

Most recently, Cody was selected to represent Team USA at the 2022 Winter Olympics.
