      Taking a gap year after high school to focus on skiing has paid off for Noah Hoffman, who, after seven successful years on the U.S. Ski Team, became an Olympian in 2014. As if the honor weren’t enough for the Aspen native, Hoffman was a contending player in Sochi’s 50k freestyle mass start, hanging with the lead pack and asserting himself as the new face of U.S. distance skiing.

      In addition to an impressive Olympic debut, Hoffman also finished 9th in the Ruka Triple Stage World Cup 15k freestyle pursit. He tacked that on to a 2013 that saw a top-10 finish at the Canmore World Cup stop, and two top-15 finishes in just his second World Championships appearance. Hoffman earned his first national title in 2012 and a silver medal in the U23 World Championships in Turkey in the same year.

      Hoffman continues to get stronger as the years go on, and used a gutsy Olympic performance to prove to himself and the rest of the world that he belongs. The 2015 World Championships could be a pivotal moment for the young skier, who looks to continue shaking things up on the big stage.

      FIRST TRACKS
      Hoffman remembers the long drives from his childhood home in Evergreen, CO to the ski slopes and, at the age of four, having to yell at his parents to wait for him. A cross country runner in sixth grade, Hoffman decided to try out a pair of skinny skis instead and the new sport stuck.

      OFF THE SNOW
      Off the snow Hoffman enjoys reading, being a fan of other sports and hanging out with friends and family. He also enjoys playing other sports including tennis, alpine skiing and soccer. “I try to stay as connected as possible with the outside world by reading the newspaper and listening to the radio.”
