The Pro Deal
Hailing from the slopes of Sugarloaf, Maine, Keegan Kilbride, 22, moved to Breckenridge, Colorado, after high school with nothing but a car and a few pairs of skis. In 2016, between working odd jobs to support his ski habit, he submitted a last-minute entry to Level 1’s Superunknown contest—which annually recognizes under-the-radar skiers—and won. This earned him a spot on the Level 1 athlete roster and a trip to Moscow to film a street ski segment for their newest film, Habit, as well as the coveted opening segment. His smooth style and deep bag of tricks scored him Breakthrough Performance of the Year at the 18th Annual Powder Awards in December.
