Name: Florian Szwebel

I was born and raised in Winter Park, Colorado and started skiing when I was 18 months old. In seventh grade, I began training full time with the Winter Park Competition Center, and my skiing rapidly improved. In ninth grade I moved to Vail to attend the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy. Junior year after winning the overall at the U-18 national championship, I was nominated to the National Training Group (NTG) and skied with them for the next year. After a Post Graduate year in Vail, I qualified for the US Ski Team and skied with them for the next two years. I was then cut from the national team and skied for MSU for the next two years. Due to various injuries I am no longer skiing collegiately but will be a full WPST tour member for the foreseeable future.
