Utah’s Steven Nyman retires after 20 years on US Ski Team

ASPEN SNOWMASS, Colo. — With three top 30s in his three Olympic appearances, Steven Nyman is bidding farewell to his illustrious World Cup skiing career on the US Ski Team.

Taking his curtain call on home soil at the World Cup in Colorado at Aspen Snowmass on Sunday, the speed specialist ceremoniously followed in the footsteps of his predecessors. The tradition is to dress up in all-American outfits as you take the opportunity to high-five coaches and supporters along the course, garnering accolades from the P.A. Announcer.

“I have decided that this week in Aspen will be my final appearance on the World Cup tour. There are a lot of people to thank and recognize who helped me along this journey. More to come soon, but most of all, I just want to say thank you to everyone,” Nyman said in a Facebook post.

Nyman inspires many, perhaps none more so than some of his biggest fans, Paralympic Alpine racers from the National Ability Center. The 40-year-old husband and father of two was raised in Provo, Utah, and spends much time in Park City, the headquarters of US Ski and Snowboard. Sundance Mountain Resort sponsored him.
