Hi, my name is Øystein Bråten. My discipline is freeski slopestyle and big air. I was born on 21 July 1995 in Ringerike, Norway. My special talent isdoing triple corks.


Øystein Bråten is well on his way to becoming one of the most talented Norwegian slopestyle and big air skiers of his generation. He's also one of the few Norwegians that can land a triple cork…

Bråten started skiing from around the time he could walk, and started trying tricks at the age of eight. The whole reason he tried freestyle skiing in the first place was because he admired the freeskiers at his local ski school, but that all seems like a distant memory now, as he's since surpassed the skiers that acted as his original inspiration.

It's clear that extreme snow action runs in the Bråten family blood, as Øystein is the younger brother of professional snowboarder Gjermund Bråten. In fact, he credits much of his comfort on rails to shredding with his big bro when he was younger.

Most of Bråten's time these days is spent skiing with friends and other professional freeskiers like Bendik Øye and Andreas Håtveit, who inspire him to get better, and go bigger. Having competed for his country in slopestyle at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, this tactic seems to be working.

In 2015, he pulled off a mind-melting world first flip-to-flip – flipping onto a rail, balancing the whole way through and then finishing off with a misty off the rail… all in one epic trick. He's a freeski legend in the making.
