Drew Duffy locked his spot on the U.S. Ski Team after impressing coaches at a spring tryout camp held at Mammoth Mountain, but it was a silver medal at the National Junior Championships and his 19th place in super G at the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships (one behind his bro) that bought him a ticket to the big show. It was Super G at the U.S. Alpine Championships at Sugarloaf, ME that surprised everyone—perhaps Duffy the most. Coming down 30th, Duffy crushed and found himself in first, sneaking ahead of veteran Steven Nyman. His reaction? "Cool!" and a thumbs up to the crowd. That's right, Duffy.
In 2016, Duffy made his World Cup debut in Lake Louise with the super G and scored his first World Cup points at Kitzbuehel in the combined. Welcome to the big leagues, Duffy!

Downhill day in Sochi was a historic day for Duffy and his teammates. While teammate and close friend Erik Arvidsson (Woodside, CA) was crowned downhill champ, Sam Morse (Sugarloaf, ME) was fourth, Florian Szwebel (Avon, CO) seventh and Duffy 10th. Duffy carried the momentum to U.S. Alpine Championships in Sun Valley, ID, where he was ninth in giant slalom and the fastest junior in the nation. Bring it on, 2017!
