Cody Townsend
Downhill Ski Racing

A downhill ski racer since childhood, Cody hung up the spandex and joined the Freeride World Tour (FWT), mixing his need for competition with the fresh, unsullied lines of backcountry skiing.  As Cody says, “If you can compete here, you can do anything on snow.”

He started 2010 like an avalanche out of the gate, taking 1st place in a field of 120 men in Mammoth, California. He took that momentum across the world’s untamed peaks and amassed “top 5” finishes in four other FWT events. Considered one of the best backcountry skiers in the world, Cody feels most at home in Santa Cruz and Squaw Valley.
