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. 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.
The Olympic experience has been more than special. We all went to the Opening Ceremonies, and it was as cool as everyone says it is. When I walked out in front of the tens of thousands of people and knew that there were millions of people watching on TV, it really gave me a crazy amount of energy. Also, meeting all the other athletes, watching them compete and even medal in their sport has been super inspiring as well.
