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 was crowned downhill champ, Morse followed suit with fourth, with Florian Szwebel seventh and Drew Duffy 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.

During the 2017 season, Morse continued the momentum at Junior World Championships in Are, Sweden, grabbing three top six results and was crowned Junior Worlds Downhill champion alongside teammate Alice Merryweather for a gold medal sweep. Next stop: the World Cup. Moose on the loose!

FIRST TRACKS
At a mere 23 months old, Morse made his first tracks skiing at Sugarloaf, ME. His official hashtag #mooseontheloose is based on his childhood nickname "Moose."

OFF THE SNOW
Off snow, Morse loves some good ol' outdoor adventuring, including whitewater kayaking and mountain biking...and sometimes likes to do it while rocking a killer mullet.
