Maggie Voisin – Winner of the NASJA Competitor of the Year Award.

Awarded to North American snowsports participants who have distinguished themselves in amateur or professional competition during the current season. The winner will be selected by online vote of Active Press, Retired Press and Corporate members.

U.S. Ski & Snowboard Ski Slopestyle Team member, Maggie Voisin, 21, from Whitefish, Montana and Park City, Utah, has won the NASJA Competitor of the Year Award for 2020. The award honors a North American snowsports competitor who has distinguished themselves in amateur or professional competition during the current season. The winner was selected by an online vote of Active Press, Retired Press and Corporate members. Previous winners include Pam Fletcher, Billy Kidd, Jean Claude Killy, Ted Ligety, Phil Mahre, Bode Miller, Mikaela Shiffrin, Lindsey Vonn, and others. “This award from NASJA is particularly meaningful to me. It shows how hard work pays off. In fact, I’m planning a full competition season next year, with Dew Tour, X Games, the Grand Prix series and international World Cups on the schedule,” Maggie says. Maggie, a two-time Olympian (2014, 2018) had one of the best comeback seasons the freeski community has ever seen. After getting ACL surgery at the beginning of 2019, there was much uncertainty surrounding her success last season. She proved her strength and determination, however, with multiple podiums and a variety of new tricks. On the X Games Tour specifically, Voisin showed exponential progression throughout the season. She gradually improved in every X Games competition, earning bronze in Aspen slopestyle, silver in Norway’s big air, and gold in Norway’s slopestyle. Voisin also podiumed at the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix and Dew Tour. To close out the season in Norway, Maggie completed a perfect double cork 1260 safety, marking the end of her incredibly successful contest season. Voisin’s triumphant season was a direct result from the hard work and passion she put into getting back to the top of the sport. She is resilient, determined, and hungry to become one of the best female freeski athletes in the world. In addition to being an impressive athlete, she is a positive, encouraging, and cooperative leader within the team
