BIO

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.

Nick grew up in Lawrenceburg, a small town in Southern Indiana.  He started skiing at the age of five at a small resort nearby, Perfect North. The local 300-foot ski hills had terrain parks and a grassroots freestyle scene.  The moment he learned to “catch air” on his skis he fell in love with the sport and it has been his number one passion ever since.

Growing up Nick hitched daily rides to the ski resort, where a group of older skiers showed him the way.  He entered his first big air contest when he was 11, released his first video edit at 12, landed his first double flip at 13 and has been on a roll ever since.  Growing up in southern Indiana may not be the typical path for a professional skier, yet somehow he cultivated enough skiing talent to make his European X Games debut on his 17th birthday.

On a visit to an action sports camp in Ohio when Nick was 15, he caught the attention of a veteran in the ski industry and within a few months, Nick was moving out West, to Mount Hood, Oregon, to attend the action sports school Windells Academy, on a full-ride athletic and academic scholarship with year-round access to training and legendary freeride coach Mike Hanley.  This full time coaching and training was the opportunity of a lifetime for Goepper. Nick’s family remained in Indiana while Nick flourished to the top of the sport and quickly became known globally.

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.”  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 X Games in Aspen. Heading into the 2012-2013 season, he was ranked 2nd worldwide, and took the gold medal at the 2013 Winter X Games. Graduated from Windell’s and after a summer of hard training, Nick opened the 2013-2014 season with big wins at The North Face Open, New Zealand Winter Games and X Games.

Nick currently resides in Breckenridge, Colorado, where he trains most of the year. 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.
