Additional Info


Perhaps the next generation of great athletes to come out of the Granite State (think Bode Miller and Leanne Smith), Ronnie Berlack of Franconia knows what it's like to ski on the rock-hard snow that's standard at the elite level. The Burke Mountain Academy student landed a spot on the U.S. Development Team for 2014 after wowing coaches at a spring tryout camp held at Mammoth Mountain. It didn't hurt that he placed an impressive 11th  in downhill and 17th in super G at the 2013 Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships in Squaw and landed top 25 in seven NorAm races that same season.

The 2014 season was also off to a promising start with some solid NorAm results, but Berlack was then sidelined for the season with a torn MCL he sustained during giant slalom training in Europe last January. He came back to racing this past summer competing in South American Cup races in Chile.
