River Radamus qualified for the Development Team the 2016 season with a myriad of excellent results. In 2017, Radamus qualified for the Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway, and grabbed a hat-trick of victories across super G, giant slalom, and combined disciplines. In doing so, Radamus became the first skier or snowboarder in history to win three individual gold medals. 

During the 2018 season, Radamus continued to excel, grabbing first and second in a pair of FIS races among some of the fastest skiers in the world in super-G, in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy. At the FIS Junior World Ski Championships in Davos, Switzerland, Radamus shared the podium with teammate Luke Winters, as they went second and third, respectively. He went on to snag a NorAm overall title and capped off the season with a third place in the super-G at U.S. Alpine Championships in Sun Valley, Idaho. Yeah Riv!

River says of Birds of Prey at Beaver Creek, "I've been watching Birds of Prey my whole life. When I was in elementary school, we used to have field trips to go watch when it came to town. I'd get to watch guys like (Andrew) Weibrecht, Bode (Miller), Ted (Ligety), Nolan (Kasper), etc., just crush at these races, and dream of an opportunity to do the same. And now I get my chance to race against the world's best in my own backyard. I mean, how can you not love that?! It is races like this [Birds of Prey] that I've worked my whole life for."

Now a named B Team member, Radamus is one that you're going to want to keep your eyes on in the upcoming 2019 season! 

FIRST TRACKS
River says, "The Vail Valley is home to me, so of course I'm excited to race there [at Birds of Prey]. I owe a huge debt to Ski and Snowboard Club Vail for where I am today. SSCV was hugely influential in molding me into the skier I am today. Birds of Prey gave me exposure to elite alpine competition at an early age and helped me believe it was possible. And most importantly, the community around here, that has been so supportive of ski racing, and supportive of me. It's definitely gonna be special charging for the hometown crowd."
