Jarod Minghini was born and raised in West Virginia, and grew up on the slopes at Snowshoe Mountain Resort. At 17 he moved to Lake Tahoe with his brother Bobby for better riding and training as well as more opportunities to progress in the sport. In just his first year living in Tahoe, he was able to qualify for Junior Worlds and win the Revolution Tour overall title.
In the following years Minghini continued to progress quickly, earning more and more NorAm podiums and wins. In 2011 he won Canadian Nationals and NorAm finals, and finished second overall in the NorAm Cup standings. That jump-started his career to getting more World Cup starts and opportunities on bigger stages.
Over the last few seasons Jarod has been consistently improving on the World Cup circuit. He began to regularly place in the top 20, finishing off the 2013 season and going into the Olympic year. Unfortunately at the first 2014 Olympic qualifier, Minghini had an accident resulting in a major knee injury. It has been a long, hard road to recovery for Minghini, but the dedicated athlete is moving towards a clean bill of health and looking forward to the 2017 season.
