A smart and talented Midwest native, Nick Goepper has the tools for success and it shows with his impressive roster of results, which now includes an Olympic bronze medal in slopestyle skiing.

The 2013-2014 season marked a standout year for Goepper, who landed on the podium at nearly every event he entered. Multiple World Cup podiums, a win at the Dew Tour and a second-straight X Games gold medal leading up to the Olympics set the stage for his success in Sochi. At the Olympic Winter Games, Goepper made history for his sport and country by taking home the first-ever bronze medal in slopestyle and by sweeping the podium with fellow teammates Joss Christensen and Gus Kenworthy. Goepper topped off his banner season with his second-straight AFP slopestyle title.

Goepper began making waves on the slopestyle scene in 2012 with a silver at X Games Aspen, a win at Dew Tour Snowbasin, a third at Dew Tour Breckenridge and a slew of other podium results. Then in 2013 Goepper took gold at X Games Aspen, third at FIS World Championships and won his first AFP slopestyle title. In addition to his podium-worthy skiing, Goepper graduated high school with a 3.7 GPA, earning him an academic scholarship to Westminster University in Salt Lake City, Utah.

NICK SAYS
2014 was one of the best seasons so far for me. I learned some new tricks, did well at contests, got an Olympic medal and had some of the coolest life experiences. My goal for next year is to continue to progress myself and have fun. Contests are a huge part of our sport and I want to make more of a presence in ski videos as well. Slopestyle skiing is an ever-evolving action sport and it’s awesome to be apart of the progression!

FIRST TRACKS
Goepper was five years old when he started skiing at the local southeast Indiana ski resort. He says, “I took lessons in a ‘Ski-Doodles’ program. After my lessons, Mom would let me go up the rope tow and would catch me at the bottom. She needed to catch me because I couldn’t stop or turn.”

OFF THE SNOW
Goepper digs anything that incorporates moving and competing. You’ll find him surfing, skateboarding, playing ping-pong and going out an occasional date.
