This past weekend you probably watched the Winter X Games, or at least saw highlights of 19-year-old Nick Goepper landing a triple cork to earn back to back gold medals in the ski slopestyle finals. These next few weeks you will likely be tuned into pre-Sochi coverage of some of the Games’ budding young stars: Goepper, 16-year-old Ty Walker, and 13-year-old Chloe Kim.

However, another group of young adults that you may not know about hit the slopes for a couple weeks earlier this month, as they do most weekends during the winter season: the University of Southern California Ski and Snowboard Team. Check out their awesome edit from winter break up at Mammoth Mountain. It’s sure to get you amped, stoked, and psyched for the Sochi Games!
