Simon Dumont is the elder statesman of skiing half-pipe. With U.S. Olympic teammates and fellow competitors sometimes half his age, Dumont finds himself leading the sport he help to create. He has stood on the podium at every major half pipe event around the world for the last 13 years, and the final prize of Olympic glory is now with in reach.

For the last year, Dumont was injured to the extent that he competed without ski poles in the 2013 Winter X Games. But he's now injury-free and in the best shape of his life. With just under 150 days left before the Winter 2014 Opening Ceremonies in Sochi, Russia.

Edging the Xtreme caught up with Simon Dumont at the recent USOC 2013 Team USA Media Summit in Park City, Utah.
