Brief Biography:
Born and raised in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Gold started out on skis at age three. In 2002 upon seeing halfpipe snowboarding in the Olympics, Gold wanted to try snowboarding. His supportive parents got him a lesson, and it was love at first turn. Leading the way for his younger sister Arielle, Taylorís tenacity for snowboarding kept them both in the game. Gold pursued competitive snowboarding during his teenage years, and after battling injuries, he has proven his worth.

Coming up through the ranks at the U.S. Revolution Tour and bursting onto the scene in late 2013 with podiums at nearly every major event, including Dew Tour and the U.S. Grand Prix earned Gold a spot on the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team for men's halfpipe. He proved his mettle by nipping at the heels of snowboard competitor staples at all Olympic qualifications. While Gold was unable to qualify for finals at the Olympics, his career is just taking off. Taylor cleaned up at the Red Bull Double Pipe event in Aspen in March 2014. A recent win at the Burton US Open, and a signature style, make Gold a player on the world snowboard stage.
