John Steel Hagenbuch is an overall gifted athlete. Skiing for both the Stifel U.S. Ski Team and the Dartmouth Ski Team, Johnny is making a name for himself at all levels of the sport. In early February of 2024, Johnny skied to an impressive bronze medal in the skate sprint at the U23 FIS Ski World Championships and had his career-best World Cup result in Östersund in 13th place. When John is not pushing his way through the snow, he can be caught mountain biking and wake surfing. Throughout his skiing career, Johnny has found himself at the top quite a few times, led by a gold at the Junior World Championships in the 4x5k relay.
