Olivier Rochon

At one point considered the best aerialist in the world, Olivier Rochon has been reconstructing his body the last couple of years to return to the form that won him the FIS Crystal Globe title in 2012. 

Born in Bucharest, Romania, this Quebec based skier has a flair for adventure and adrenaline. Rochon was originally a trained gymnast with goals of representing Canada at the 2012 London Olympic Games, but a broken wrist forced him to consider a new path and a winter sport.

Rochon’s talent as a former member of the national gymnastics team seemed to be the perfect fit for aerials when the sport recruited him to snow in 2005. Within four years, Rochon had qualified for the national team. In 2009 Rochon’s status around the world as a great aerialist was cemented when he was awarded the FIS Rookie of the Year Award.

Rochon’s FIS Crystal Globe victory put him in elite company along with legendary Canadian aerliasts such as Steve Omischl, Nicolas Fontaine, Philippe Laroche, Lloyd Langlois, Jean-Marc Rozon, Yves Laroche, Craig Clow, Jean Corriveau, and John Eaves who have won the prestigious award.
