Tanner Hall
Is now the most successful Winter X Games athlete ever with seven gold medals. Hall is renowned for soaring higher than anyone above the lip of the Superpipe. He came to the 2008 Winter X Games ready to set records for gold medals won. His second run was a flawless display of innovation; opening with a right-side 900 and following with six technical hits averaging at least ten feet out on all.
The Montana native is such a fiend for powder skiing that he shuns some contests to ski steep and deep for mind-blowing ski films.
