A smart and talented Midwest native, Nick Goepper has the tools for success and it shows with his impressive roster of results. Goepper made waves on the slopestyle scene in 2012, taking a silver medal at X Games Aspen, a win at Dew Tour Snowbasin, third at Dew Tour Breckenridge and a slew of other podium results. Known for his near flawlessly executed slopestyle runs; the world should expect to see more of Goepper.

In 2013 Goepper took X Games Aspen gold, third at FIS World Championships and won the slopestyle AFP title among other exciting podiums. In addition to his podium-worthy skiing, Goepper graduated high school with a 3.7 GPA, earning him an academic scholarship to Westminster University in Salt Lake City, Utah.

NICK SAYS
The season was great. I was disappointed in a couple of my performances, but overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better season. I am always working hard to learn new tricks and can’t wait to train this summer and fall. My goal this year is to improve upon last year, grow athletically, improve my tricks, be the best ranked in AFP slopestyle and podium at the Olympics. I also would like to begin working on my college classes.

FIRST TRACKS
Goepper was five years old when he started skiing at the local southeast Indiana Ski resort. He says “I took lessons in a ‘Ski-Doodles’ program. After my lessons, Mom would let me go up the rope tow and would catch me at the bottom. She needed to catch me because I couldn’t stop or turn.”

OFF THE SNOW
Goepper digs anything that incorporates moving and competing. You’ll find him surfing, skateboarding, playing pingpong and going out an occasional date.
