BIOGRAPHY
Thomas made history as part of the 2002 Olympic U.S. Men's halfpipe sweep. After earning his bronze medal Thomas has spent a lot of time outside of the pipe filming parts but is back to the competition scene and looking forward to 2010.

UPDATE
While he did compete on the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix tour in 2009, notching a fourth place at the Boreal Resort stop, Thomas was also busy marching to the beat of his own drum...literally. Along with friends, Thomas released a record with the group MileHi.
