Without the bottomless powder at Snowbird, Jared Goldberg would not be a member of the U.S. Ski Team. "Well, I certainly wouldn't be a ski racer, that's for sure," he says. But by age 14 he was invested and it didn't take long for that to turn into racing at the elite level.
The 2014 Olympic season could easily be described as a breakout year for Goldberg. In addition to making his first Olympic team, where he finished top 20 in super combined, downhill as well as giant slalom, Goldberg also notched solid World Cup numbers. Good thing his dad, Don, took everything but a rickshaw to get to Sochi in order to cheer on his son. The highlights? Try 12th in the famed Lauberhorn downhill in Wengen and 11th in the Kitzbuehel super combined.
In the 2015 season, Goldberg showed consistency on the World Cup circuit, performing in the top 30 and snagging himself World Cup points. One of the most conditioned athletes on the team, Goldberg showed glimpses of brilliance in 2015—like snagging the 3rd fastest run in the downhill portion of the Alpine Combined at World Championships in Vail/Beaver Creek. In the 2016 season, Goldberg continued to tackle four events and grabbed himself multiple top-20 finishes highlighted by a 12th place at Wengen in the combined. Goldberg will look to find consistency in the top 15 in 2017.
