Compared to his AIS team-mates,Brodie Summers was a relative late-comer to the sport of Mogul Skiing, joining the Team Buller Riders (TBR) club program as a teenager.
Since joining the sport, Brodie has blended natural talent together with hard work and dedication to make a fast progression up the athlete pathway and be in contention for his first Australian Olympic Winter Games team.
Brodie had a breakthrough season in 2013, posting two top-10 performances at the World Championships in Voss, Norway.
The 2013/2014 season was Brodie's first full time year on the World Cup circuit. Brodie peaked at the right time recording a personal best World Cup performance of 12th place in the final event before the Sochi Olympic Winter Games.
At the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, Brodie posted a strong qualifying performance in ninth place, easily advancing to the 20-man final. In the first round of finals, Brodie missed out on advancing to the second round by an agonisingly close margin of .03, finishing the event ranked 13th.
Brodie missed the 2014-2015 World Cup season due to an injured back, recovered in time to resume program activities in mid 2015.
In 2015-2016, Brodie returned to World Cup competition, with his best performance coming in the opening World Cup of the season in Ruka, Finland, placing 15th.
