Among the athletes taking part is one of the best to ever hit a half pipe. Shaun White already has two Olympic Gold medals, 24 X-Games titles and a Dew Tour victory.

He also happens to be a pretty snappy dresser with his own clothing line.

"I spent two months this summer living in New York City, hanging out. So everyone kind of has a different vibe out there. It's a different scene and I like it. I like being influenced by different places and different things," White said.

He has also been working with Stride to develop his flavor of gum.

"I feel like I have a very refined palette. By now we have two flavors that are doing pretty well, so I feel like I have a good taste going," White said.

Those are accomplishments that for any other athlete would be enough. But Shaun's also focused on the 2014 Olympics in Sochi Russia and says they will be his best yet.

He has plans to compete in the half pipe and on the slope style course, which makes its Olympic debut in 2014.

"It's like Die Hard with a Vengeance. It's the best one. You know what I mean? I'm so excited because the third time is the charm," White said.

That's not to say that everything for White has been perfect. In September he was arrested in Nashville for public intoxication and vandalism. He's publicly apologized and says that it was a bad night which he has moved on from. Now he's back in competition and ready to once again prove to the world there's nothing no one better on a snowboard.
