The son of Conrad and Jen Gerard, Red Gerard has five brothers and two sisters and began snowboarding at two years old. In 2011, he started competing in the amateur ranks, going pro five years later.
At 17 years old, Gerard won a gold medal in his Olympic Winter Games debut in PyeongChang, South Korea in slopestyle snowboarding. With the win, he became the youngest male U.S. Olympian to capture gold in 90 years and the youngest Olympic snowboarder in history to win gold.
Since the Olympic Winter Games, Gerrard continues to compete and travel the world for contests, all while maintaining the great laid back (yet serious) attitude he is known for.
When not competing, Gerard has his own mini snowboard park in his backyard with a rope lift and is collaborating with Copper Mountain to open “Red’s Backyard,” a park located adjacent to the mountain’s halfpipe. He also plans to open two more parks in Park City, Utah and Killington, Vermont. He also enjoys skateboarding and golf.
