Biography:

A year after his Olympic debut at Sochi 2014, Trevor Philp was a member of the Canadian squad that won silver in the team event at the 2015 World Championships. He also broke into the top-20 in both the slalom and giant slalom at those worlds. Before making his world championship debut in 2013, Philp had competed at four editions of the FIS Junior World Championships (2010-13), recording his best results in 2012 when he was fourth in the slalom and seventh in the giant slalom.

Philp began competing on the World Cup circuit full time in 2012-13 but did not record his first finish until December 2013 when he placed 30th in the giant slalom in Beaver Creek. Since then, he has broken into the top-20 four times, including a career-best 11th place finish in the giant slalom in Beaver Creek in December 2017. One of his favourite highlights was standing in the leader box during the second slalom run at Kitzbuehel in January 2016 as he went on to finish 14th.

Before graduating from the University of Denver in 2015, Philp spent the previous years juggling full-time academics with being on the World Cup circuit and competing collegiately. As a senior, he finished second in the slalom at the NCAA Championships for the second straight year. Philp had the opportunity to be a forerunner for the giant slalom, super-G and downhill events at Vancouver 2010, fueling his fire to become an Olympian himself.
