Brennan Rubie was involved in U.S. Ski Team camps until he punched a ticket into the U.S. Development program in 2010. Since then, the Snowbird shredder has won NorAm races, scored World Cup points and is quickly easing into his role as the next American giant slalom ace.

After a long rehab from a fractured leg he suffered during the 2013 season, Rubie was back in the saddle for 2014. The World Cup season didn’t go as planned thanks to bad luck, but he did finish second in the NorAm GS standings to hang onto a World Cup GS start for 2015.

BRENNAN SAYS
I want to be a Professional Ski Racer for a lot of reasons. Being the best in the world at anything would be amazing. I would be honored to have the chance at representing my home ski club, mountain, hometown, state and country in a World Cup or at the Olympics one day. I want to ski race because skiing is my passion. And it is not often that you get the option to turn one of your life’s passions into your life’s work. This is my chance at living that dream.

FIRST TRACKS
Rubie's dad was a ski instructor at Snowbird and first hooked him up to the ski harness at two. It wasn't long before he joined the Bird’s club program. "It's a different race program than most places. You learned to love skiing first, then racing." By the time he hit fifth grade, things were moving in the race direction. "Basically, I'd add a day of race training each year to the point where I was running gates six days a week."

OFF THE SNOW
His folks are also big windsurfers and began taking family trips to the wind mecca of Hood River, OR since he was eight years old. A big music fan, his iPod has more songs than he could listen to in a week.
