Connor Hogan - Paralympian

June 14, 2018 2 Comments

Connor Hogan hails from Foxborough, Massachusetts and learned to ski in Vermont. Connor began going to Bromley Mountain at a young age with his ski instructor and became an avid skier at the age of 5. Born with cerebral palsy, he began ski racing when he was 7 in the Diana Golden race series in the Northeast. Connor's first race was in February 2005 at Windham Mountain in New York and he was hooked. He started race training at Bromley for the 2008-2009 season and moved to Stratton Mountain in 2013 as a member of Stratton’s Winter Sports Club. 

In 2015, Connor was named to the team that represented the United States at the 2015 Paralympic Alpine Skiing World Championships. Since that time, Connor has come back from a devastating ankle fracture in 2016 and come back to place on the podium a number of times in 2017 and so far in 2018

Connor is fearless on the slopes and works hard in the off season at the gym and at Everwood Day Camp as a camp counselor, earning money to offset his equipment, competition, travel and training expenses. In the off-season, Connor enjoys golfing, mountain biking and hiking the trails on Mount Anthony at his grandmother's home in Bennington, Vermont.
