Ranked #1 in the World, American slopestyle freeskier, Nick Goepper medaled at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, where freeskiing made its Olympic debut.
In the winter of 2010-2011, Nick blasted onto the pro-level freeskiing contest circuit, qualifying in slopestyle for his first Dew Tour and Winter X Games in France, where ESPN called him a “Rookie to Watch.” In January 2011, he placed 3rd at the Dew Tour in Killington. A few months later, he showed up at the Dumont Cup in Maine, a contest known for taking unknown amateurs and pitting them against the top pros, and he won. If people didn’t know who Nick Goepper was before, they certainly did now. With a bevy of freestyle moves and spins in his arsenal, Nick continued to earn top scores, including 2nd place at Dew Tour stop #1 and 3rd place at Dew Tour stop #2 the next season.
He followed that by winning a silver medal at the 2012 Winter XGames in Aspen. Heading into the 2012-2013 season, he was ranked 2nd worldwide, and took the gold medal at the 2013 Winter X Games. After a summer of hard training, Nick opened the 2013-2014 season with two big wins at The North Face Open and New Zealand Winter Games.
Nick currently resides in Breckenridge, Colorado and trains at Vail Resorts. When not on the slopes, Nick’s hobbies include skateboarding, biking, surfing, hiking and swimming. He also enjoys speaking to school groups and visiting children’s hospitals.
