Without the bottomless powder at Snowbird, Jared Goldberg would not be a member of the U.S. Ski Team. "Well, I certainly wouldn't be a ski racer, that's for sure," he says. But by age 14 he was invested and it didn't take long for that to turn into racing at the elite level.

The 2014 Olympic season could easily be described as a breakout year for Goldberg. In addition to making his first Olympic team, where he finished top 20 in super combined, downhill as well as giant slalom, Goldberg also notched solid World Cup numbers. Good thing his dad, Don, took everything but a rickshaw to get to Sochi in order to cheer on his son. The highlights? Try 12th in the famed Lauberhorn downhill in Wengen and 11th in the Kitzbuehel super combined.

In the 2015 season, Goldberg showed consistency on the World Cup circuit, performing in the top 30 and snagging himself World Cup points. One of the most conditioned athletes on the team, Goldberg showed glimpses of brilliance this season—like snagging the 3rd fastest run in the downhill portion of the Alpine Combined at World Championships in Vail/Beaver Creek. In the 2016 season, Goldberg will continue to tackle four events. Needless to say, coaches and teammates have Goldberg tabbed as one of the next best four-event skiers in the U.S. behind guys like Bode Miller and Ted Ligety.

FIRST TRACKS
Born in "Bean Town," Goldberg learned to ski at Killington, VT before his family moved to Utah when he was four. From then on it was all about freeskiing at Snowbird. "I started racing when I was six," he said, "but we had so much snow that year, I mostly skied powder all winter." At 17 he joined Team Flow and started dialing the gates, eventually earning his first run on the U.S. Ski Team in 2010 with a berth on the U.S. Development Team.

OFF THE SNOW
Goldberg plays a ton of different instruments, mostly stringed, but he doesn't mind banging a few drums. He travels all season with a ukulele and harmonica, but hopes to add a banjo and sitar to the collection. Also a big fan of tackling other activities on and off the mountain, like mountain biking and surfing. Goldberg's favorite break is Trestles in SoCal, and he enjoys time in Maui and attended a surf camp in Nicaragua this year. Shaka brah!
