      One of a handful of U.S. National Team athletes from Vermont's Stratton Mountain School, Nick Krause has international experience already in the bag as well as a smattering of FIS race podiums. However, he sets himself apart with an incredible work ethic.

      A slower start than he'd like to the 2013 season led to an incredible final push, as Krause locked a NorAm giant slalom podium and two other top 10 NorAm finishes in downhill and super G. The results landed him inside the NorAm top 30 in downhill, giant slalom, super G and in the NorAm overall.

      Combine that with a 15th in the Junior World Championships super G and this budding speed skier has now jumped out of the Development Team ranks for 2014.

      NICK SAYS
      When I was named to the Junior World Championships team I was thrilled and excited to race in such a big event. I knew there were going to be some outstanding skiers that I was going up against, and I knew I was going to have to throw down solid runs to compete with them. What I did not know was how much fun it was going to be.

      Although I did not have any super crazy results in Quebec, I managed to get 15th in the super G at Le Massif. It was an amazing week racing with the best ski racers in the world under the age of 21 and a great experience to have in preparation for next year’s WJCs in Slovakia!

      FIRST TRACKS
      After picking up skiing at age three, Krause quickly became enthralled with skiing NASTAR gates. After fueling his love with the Wachusett Race Team, training in both alpine and freestyle, Krause chose the long boards. He was quickly recruited to Stratton Mountain School in VT and later qualified for the U.S. Development Team.

      OFF THE SNOW
      Call him an all-around music lover; Krause has been known to listen to everything from Notorious B.I.G. to Katy Perry to Edward Sharpe. He's also into watching most all animated TV shows, but especially Family Guy.
