I am Nicholas Goralka. I am 15 years old and I moved to Aspen Colorado when I was 8 years old and never looked back. Throughout my years in Aspen I have developed a deep love for the mountains. I love to hike, Mountain Bike, rock climb and of course ski. This year is my first year in competing in Big Mountain competition and unfortunately I have had a lot of crashes this season but I am super stoked to compete in the North American championships this week in Snowbird Utah. I am applying to Flyin’ Ryan to help offset some of the expense for the competition to better meet my goals for this season!
