Former U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete and Olympian Jeremy Nobis passed away Wednesday morning, April 19, 2023 in Cedar City, Utah at the age of 52.

Nobis was a storied ski racer. He attended Vermont’s Green Mountain Valley School and made the U.S. Alpine Ski Team in the late 1980s. He won two World Junior Championships at 1988 and 1989, before competing in tech events on the World Cup circuit through 1995. He attended the 1994 Olympic Winter Games, racing in the giant slalom and slalom and finished ninth in the GS. 

Post-ski racing, Nobis switched to big mountain skiing, where he became known for skiing lines down some of the steepest runs around the world and was dubbed “The Icon.” He was featured in a number of Warren Miller, Teton Gravity Research and Matchstick Productions movies throughout his career. He also had a pro model ski designed by Dynastar and helped design new skis for the then burgeoning freeskiing culture.

He is the brother of Shannon Nobis, who also skied for the U.S. Alpine Ski Team at the 1994 Olympic Winter Games.

U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s thoughts and condolences are with his family, friends and ski community. Mental health resources are available here.
