After a knee injury kept Max Moffatt out of competition in his first season as a member of the Canadian national slopestyle team, the Caledon, Ontario, native came back and won the overall 2015-2016 NorAm slopestyle title.
Moffatt has been a skier for most of his life, but he didn’t make the switch from racing to a freestyle skiing program until he was fourteen. Despite his late start in the sport, his natural talent landed him a position on the national development team in 2014 less than two years after taking up slopestyle.
After being named to the team, the whole Moffatt family packed up their home in Ontario and moved out west to Calgary in order to support Max’s ski career. He is attending the National Sport School in Calgary and lives right near Canada Olympic Park, giving him much better access to training facilities than he had in Ontario.
In 2016, Moffatt was award the Freestyle Canada NextGen Award for slopestyle athletes given to up and coming athletes across Canada.
