Brady grew up in Calgary, Alberta, dreaming about becoming an Olympic Skier. Brady first showed his talent racing alpine with the Calgary Alpine Racing Club. Brady steadily moved up the alpine ranks in Canada. He eventually found a spot on the Canadian Development team ranking himself 3rd in Canada in Super Combined and in the top 10 in the country in the other 4 alpine disciplines. When he is not training and racing Ski Cross he can still be found outside playing golf, mountain biking, riding motocross, hiking, playing soccer, and playing pond hockey! You can always pick Brady out of the crowd on the hill by spotting the signature four leaf clover on his helmet.
With the 2010 Olympics fast approaching Brady took advantage of an opportunity to switch from alpine to the action packed head-to-head excitement of Ski Cross. After just two short years he secured himself a position on the world cup “C” team with Alpine Canada and a spot on the World Cup Tour for the 2008/09 season. He proceeded to make himself a serious competitor on the Ski Cross World Cup, with four top 12 finishes in his first year in the sport. Other highlights from the 2008/09 season included a 7th place finish at the 2009 X Games, and a 16th place finish at the World Freestyle Ski Championships in Japan.
In 2010 Brady continued to show improvement. Despite racing on what turned out to be a still fractured tibia (from a crash at the end of the 09 season) he posted his best results to date. Including 3 top 10 finishes on the World Cup, a spot on the Canadian Olympic Team (ended up not competing, injured in training) and an X Games Bronze medal.
