The Nick Goepper Story: Rags to Riches

'DOWNDAYS' featured Wend rider Nick Goepper on their Freeski Eurpoean Website. 
“Nick Goepper broke out onto the scene at last year’s Dew Tour, but the road to freeski super stardom hasn’t always been easy. Between hating skiing when he first took up the sport to “hustlin’ candy on the school bus” to make enough money to support himself, learn Nick’s life story and how the kid from the Midwest made himself into a contest sensation by simply outworking everyone else.”

Wend rider Nick Goepper chatted with 'Stack news' before he headed off to compete, taking them through his THOUGHT process before performing at the iON Mountain Championships. 

 

 

STACK: What are you looking forward to most?
Goepper: I look forward to landing my runs in front of the crowd. I also look forward to all the stoked fans and people cheering.
STACK: On the flip side, is there anything making you nervous?
GoepperThe only thing in that regard would be the weather. But it looks like we are going to have pristine weather for this contest, so there is nothing else to worry about.
STACK: What do you think is your greatest strength or skill in this competition?
GoepperI would say my ability to land my runs top to bottom. Also, the amount of time I spent on my skis this summer. I worked really hard and got some good practice in for this winter.
STACK: What’s your game plan going into an event?
GoepperI keep a good mental mindset, make sure my body is feeling good, make sure my equipment is tuned and then I'm off.
