Biography

Jonny Moseley was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1975 and he hit snow for the first time in Squaw Valley when his family relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1978. Although he was a “weekend skier” growing up, Jonny competed with great success on a national level as a youth and in 1996 he won the Overall World Cup Freestyle Title and the Combined World Cup Freestyle Title. He secured a spot on the 1998 US Olympic team and he won the first American gold medal of the Nagano Olympic Games with what had become his signature move, the 360 mute-grab.

Mr. Moseley threw himself into celebrating with the same intensity he dedicated to training, but not before returning to the World Cup, winning the last two events of the season and securing the 1998 World Cup Mogul Title as well as the US National Title with nine wins on the season.

With 26 career World Cup podiums and a gold medal, Jonny reached the apex of mogul skiing and he was rewarded. The U.S. Olympic Committee honored him by naming him Sportsman of the Year, Rolling Stone magazine named him to their Sports Hall of Fame and Cindy Crawford posed with him for the cover of Freeskier magazine. Jonny went on to challenge the International Skiing Federation (FIS) to allow their athletes to compete in professional events and entered ESPN's X-Games taking second place with his newly developed trick, the Dinner Roll.

Leading up to the Olympics in 2002 Jonny Moseley once again lobbied the FIS, this time to allow him to perform the Dinner Roll in Olympic competition. FIS allowed the trick and Jonny executed a perfect Dinner Roll in the semi-finals and another in the finals. He thrilled the crowd and the judges awarded him fourth place but his efforts opened the door to inverted tricks and forever changed freestyle skiing. Jonny did not take home a medal from Salt Lake but being true to his style brought him honors of another kind.

Later that year he hosted Saturday Night Live, delivered the commencement address at University of California at Berkeley, was declared one of People magazine's 50 Most Eligible Bachelors and hosted a series for MTV.  In 2007 Jonny was inducted into the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.

Today, Jonny Moseley lives in Tiburon, CA with his wife and two young sons and spends as much time as possible on San Francisco Bay. He does a variety of TV work including providing the color commentary for the six freestyle skiing events at the Vancouver Olympics. He is proud to act as a spokesperson for Sprint and Squaw Valley.
