Kenworthy came out in ESPN the Magazine in 2015, saying “I wanted to do it in my words and once and for all — and hopefully help kids that are in the same position I was.” At the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, he and figure skater Adam Rippon represented the LGBTQ+ community as out gay Olympians.

The 2022 Winter Olympics hopeful continues to train daily, but for two days this December a few lucky Madeline hotel guests will be with Kenworthy as he offers key ski tips, and shares the secret of “landing impressive tricks to look like a pro.”
