Carrabassett Valley Academy can claim that they helped guide Bode Miller into being one of the best in the world. Now they can also say they helped Sam Morse get on that path too. The young gun didn’t disappoint in 2014, obliterating the FIS race circuit to become the number one downhiller in the country within his age group. He also placed top 30 in both slalom and giant slalom at the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships in Squaw Valley. The results, coupled with a good work ethic, earned Morse both the Golden Ski Award (for the top junior skier in the East) and a spot on the U.S. Ski Team.
Morse snagged some impressive results at World Juniors on the 2014 Olympic track in Sochi, with a fourth in downhill and 13th in the combined. Downhill day in Sochi was a historic day for Morse and his teammates. While teammate Erik Arvidsson (Woodside, CA) was crowned downhill champ, Morse followed suit with fourth, with Florian Szwebel (Avon, CO) seventh and Drew Duffy (Warren, VT) in 10th. Morse knows what it's like to be part of a team and build teammates up, yet he also knows how to put the hammer down on the mountain. Keep an eye out for him in 2017 as he makes the move from D Team to C Team. Moose on the loose!
