The 18-year-old is taking to the halfpipe this month at the X Games.
“Competing in my first X Games last year was a dream come true—it really is the Super Bowl of snowboarding,” the 18-year-old from Tahoe, California, says. “The energy at the halfpipe under the lights is at another level. You feel how excited the crowd is and I really think that changes the way you ride.”
Miller asked for a snowboard when he was five and he’s had impressive body awareness ever since. “When he was in the air, he seemed more in control of his body than most twelve- or thirteen-year-olds would be on the ground,” says his Truckee, California-based trainer Chris Cloyd.
Furthermore caught up with Miller before this month’s competition to talk legs, eggs, and why he’s opposed to chairlifts.
