A Maine native, Jeremy Cota's laidback style may be what takes him all the way. Cota already had some impressive wins under his belt before coming onto the U.S. Ski Team in the 2010 season. The 2009 NorAm Champion, Jeremy has had some great experience with winning. He flawlessly carried that experience into his World Cup rookie season and then beyond.
In 2012, four World Cup second-place finishes boosted Cota into third place in the World Cup mogul standings for the season. He also ended up fourth in the overall freestyle standings. He earned his second U.S. title in the single moguls event, along with a silver medal in the duals contest. In his five years on the team, Cota has secured seven top-three results.
Although battling a bone bruise in the 2013 season, Cota proved to be a true competitor, earning a third-place finish in Ruka, Finland before taking some time off to recover. He has his eyes set on the 2014 Games.
