Nicholas Goralka

Snowmass, CO

I am Nicholas Goralka. I’m 15 years old and I moved to Aspen Colorado when I was 8 years old and I’ve 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 competitions and unfortunately I have had a lot of crashes this season but I am super stoked to compete in the North American championships this next week in Snowbird Utah. I hope that I can land some solid runs. I love to ski. It is my passion. When people ask me what I want to do when I grow up all I say is I want to ski.
