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.
