Tanner Hall (born October 26, 1983), of Kalispell, Montana is a freeskier.[1]

In 2002 Hall co-founded the freeride ski company Armada Skis with skier JP Auclair and photographer Chris O'Connell. Hall is also part owner of the snowcat ski hill Retallack near Nelson, BC, Canada along with skier Seth Morrison[citation needed]. His career is managed by his father Dominic Hall.

In March 2005 whilst attempting a switch 900 over the legendary Chad's Gap in Wasatch backcountry, Utah, he pulled up short, hit the knuckle and then ragdolled down the landing, breaking both ankles.[2] His injuries put him out for the rest of the season but returned in 2006 to win gold at both the US Freeskiing Open and the Winter X-Games.

Hall remains the only athlete to have a three peat at the Winter X Games. His attempts at a fourth gold in slopestyle was upset by Charles Gagnier and in 2009 a fourth straight superpipe gold was snatched from him by Xavier Bertoni.[3]
