Heidi Kloser has been a sports fanatic since day one. Almost immediately, she realized her true love for skiing. Her father’s background in moguls and her childhood up on a mountain are the two main reasons why she has two sticks attached to her feet most of the time. As soon as she was able to rip up the slopes, Kloser was headed right for the bumps and jumps.
Six years after her introduction to skiing, she entered her first mogul competition (at the age of seven). Kloser tore into her World Cup rookie season in 2010 with four consecutive top 15 finishes, earning her the FIS World Cup women’s moguls Rookie of the Year title. Four NorAm podiums, including two wins, also sealed her the NorAm overall title. As a U.S. Ski Team sophomore, she hauled in three World Cup top 10 finishes and added a bronze medal in duals at U.S. Championships.
In 2012 Kloser notched a career-high fourth-place World Cup finish on home snow in Deer Valley. That plus another top 10 Word Cup result was enough to put her in the top 20 in the World Cup season standings.
All that was only fuel for her competitive fire, because in 2013 Kloser started her season with another career-best second-place finish in Kreischberg, Austria. She then went on to earn three more top 10s throughout the season.
