David DiGravio is a believer in the old saying, "It's not the size of the dog in the fight; it's the size of the fight in the dog." At 5’8” he isn't the biggest guy on the hill, but his inner fire, fueled from the time his older brother was out-skiing him, keeps igniting him to do better.
As far as his coaches are concerned, David is one of the most determined athletes in the system. He trains hard, skies hard and competes with a vengeance. With eight top 15 World Cup results in 2011, DiGravio marked his career-high World Cup overall ranking in 10th. Showing the consistency he has worked for, DiGravio tacked on two more World Cup top 10 results in 2012.
The winter of 2013 was a rebuilding season for DiGravio after a knee injury, but he still managed an 8th place finish in Lake Placid, NY as well as additional top 15 results.
The DiGravios skied at Sugarloaf when he was a tyke, and they eventually moved from outside Boston to Farmington, ME, less than an hour away from the mountain. He entered CVA in the eighth grade. "We went from skiing weekends at Sugarloaf to making the fulltime commitment. Ever since I started, I've wanted to ski on the World Cup and go against the best guys in the world," he said. "To do that, you've got to practice every day, and CVA helped me do that." His variety of ski skills became especially apparent at the 2004 Junior Olympics at Idaho's Silver Mountain. He won the dual moguls title, took bronze in halfpipe (he was silver medalist in 2002) and finished fourth in moguls. Then in 2005, DiGravio took silver in mogul and bronze in duals.
OFF THE SNOW
When he’s not skiing on snow, he’s working on his skiing at the water ramps, jumping on trampolines, and muscling through strength and conditioning sessions.
