Louie Vito

Hero USA

Louie Vito embodies style, power, skill and determination. Vito was a member of the 2010 U.S. Olympic Team, a four-time Overall U.S. Grand Prix Champion and is a two-time Dew Cup Overall Champion. He has also accumulated six career X Games medals, including two Gold Medals.

In an unprecedented streak between the 2010 Olympics and spring 2012, Louie managed the unheard-of feat of earning podium positions in 20 of the world's 23 major snowboarding contests, including three consecutive X Games medals, the overall championship for the Winter Action Sports Tour, and the overall championship in the U.S. Grand Prix (the third of his career at that time).

In January 2014, Vito was the first athlete to ever both co-host and compete in the X Games at the same time. In addition to his demanding hosting duties for ESPN and ABC during the X Games, he also won the Silver Medal in the Superpipe. Vito attended the respected Stratton Mountain School - a ski and snowboard academy from the eighth grade through high school. He turned professional at age 17 and immediately became a familiar presence on winners’ podiums. Vito has won fans off the mountain as well - he competed on Dancing With The Stars (season 9) and was featured in ESPN The Magazine’s “Body Issue” in 2011. Since then he was named Mens Health Magazine’s Top 50 Most Fit Athletes in the World, he had a speaking part in the movie Point Break, hosted several projects for Red Bull-TV and ESPN, appeared on numerous TV shows on Nickelodeon such as 100 Things to do before High School, Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life, just to name a few. He also starred on ABC Family TV’s Switched. In 2015, Vito won a Young Hollywood Award as the country’s “Most Awesome Athlete.”

Every year Louie hosts a charity Rail Jam at his hometown mountain resort in Ohio. This event has grown to be the biggest one of it’s kind in the entire Midwest.
