Born in Greece, AJ Ginnis spent his early years in Austria before moving to Vermont's famed Green Mountain Valley School, where he really started to fine-tune his skiing. Things clicked so well that he was asked to join the U.S. Development Team after a spring 2012 tryout camp. He pounced on the opportunity and uprooted again for Park City to train at the Center of Excellence. After missing the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL, Ginnis was back in the gate during the Olympic year. While he didn’t push the envelope (still gaining strength), he did win a number of FIS races and finished top 20 in giant slalom at the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships in Squaw Valley.
Ginnis had a big year in 2015, getting some experience on the World Cup circuit and earning himself a podium at Junior World Championships in Hafjell, Norway and capping the season by grabbing second place in slalom at U.S. Alpine Championships in Sugarloaf, ME. After sitting a portion of the 2016 season with a torn meniscus, Ginnis is strong again and looking to find his way back to the World Cup circuit in 2017. He's hungry for his first World Cup points.
