Just two years after he first started sliding at the Alberta skeleton school, Kevin Boyer entered his first North American Cup races in November 2012 and posted back-to-back top-10 finishes on the Calgary track. He raced fulltime on the North American Cup circuit in 2013-14, earning three podium finishes. He also competed at his first world junior championships where he cracked the top-10.
Boyer started the 2014-15 season in North American Cup races before progressing into Europa Cup events. He won a silver medal in his first Europa Cup race in St. Moritz. After two more seasons on the Europa Cup, which included a bronze medal in St. Moritz in January 2016, he debuted on the World Cup circuit in January 2017 and made his world championship debut a month later. He posted career-high results in November and December 2017 when he finished 12th in Whistler and Winterberg. He finished 17th in his Olympic debut at PyeongChang 2018.
