John Kerbaugh joins the Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team for his first year. The Vermont skier found his passion for the sport at a young age and continues to cultivate his skillset at Mt. Mansfield Academy, located in Stowe, Vermont, where he is currently in his senior year as a full-time student. Kerbaugh is a straight-A student and handles a rigorous academic schedule that includes AP classes during the race season.
Kerbaugh’s top ski racing memories include winning his first FIS giant slalom race at Sunday River and becoming the Junior National Giant Slalom Champion at the young age of 16. During the 2023 race season, Kerbaugh saw five overall podium finishes and 17 U18 podium finishes.
