Born and bred in Utah, downhiller Steven Nyman was skiing at two (Dad ran the ski school at Sundance) and was a discretionary pick to the 2002 Junior Worlds squad, where he landed two medals, including a slalom gold. Coaches were so impressed they entered him in a World Cup slalom six days later and he finished 15th. Needless to say, his 6’4” frame is more suited for speed events – a pair of World Cup downhill wins proves it.
The one thing that is consistent about World Cup skiing is that it’s not consistent. Nyman knows that best of all. After an incredibly successful 2013 season, 2014 shaped up to be mediocre results-wise. But he took a lot of positives out of the season as well, namely fast skiing in Beaver Creek (home of the 2015 World Championships) and another Olympic start. The Olympic start wasn’t a gift. After being named to the U.S. team by coaches’ discretion, Nyman then had to fight for a downhill start by skiing fast in the training runs, which he did.
After the World Cup season, it was all about getting his points down to better his start position for 2015. That plan included a trip to the Canadian championships and skiing FIS races well into April.
