Since discovering halfpipe skiing when he was 14, Noah Bowman became one of the athletes to watch when the event made its Olympic debut at Sochi 2014 where he finished fifth. Bowman showed great consistency from qualification to the final, scoring at least 80 points in three of his four runs.
Bowman competed in his first World Cup in January 2009 and earned his first World Cup top 10 result in March 2011. He stepped onto his first World Cup podium in March 2012, winning silver at Mammoth.
The 2010 World Junior champion, Bowman was invited as an alternate to the 2012 Winter X Games in Aspen and when a spot opened up he took full advantage, winning the silver medal in his rookie appearance, thanks to a new trick, the switch alley-oop double 900. At both the 2013 Winter X Games in Aspen and Tignes, Bowman missed qualifying for the finals by one place.
