2014 Race Announcer
GORDY JOHNSON is recognized as one of the world’s most talented and experienced announcers. From humble beginnings as a junior racer at Mammoth Mountain, Gordy was soon a top ranked competitor, instructor, coach and National Demo Team Member. After nearly 4000 days on the mountain, he discovered snowboarding! Gordy took to snowboarding with a renewed passion. This led to announcing the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City, UT. After that, ESPN offered Gordy a job as CoHost for coverage of the National Championships which led to a 15 year globe trotting tour to major snowboarding, surf, ski and mountain bike competitions around the globe.
