The ski world took notice of Tommy after he dominated the 2006 National Junior Championships winning four gold medals.  It wasn’t long before he was winning at the Junior World Championships and dominating the US National Championships at the senior level.

Tommy made his World Cup debut in 2009 and went on to represent the United States at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.  Over the next two seasons he showed the world he was a contender, racking up six top-20 World Cup finishes as well as a 14th place at the 2011 World Championships.  An unfortunate freeskiing accident ended his 2013 season early, but Ford came back stronger than ever.

During the 2016-2017 season Tommy once again stepped up his skiing, doubling his total number of top-20 results.  Expect to see him vying for a medal at the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics.
