Philp is part of an emerging group of young Canadian technical racers who are starting to establish themselves on the World Cup circuit. The Calgary, Alta. native made his first World Cup start during the 2011-12 season where he was balancing his studies at the University of Denver with racing at the highest level. Philp competed at both the junior and senior World Championships in 2013 and won that year’s Canadian giant slalom title. At the 2015 FIS World Championships in Vail/Beaver Creek, Philp was an integral part of the Canadian Team that nabbed silver in the team event after narrowly missing it two years previously. In the 2015-16 season, Philp was crowned the Canadian Champion in giant slalom and alpine combined and had a season-best 14th-place finish in the Kitzbuehel (AUT) slalom.
