      Once Eric Loughran learned aerials would allow him to do as many inverted back flips on skis as he wanted, he was sold.

      With a string of NorAm top-10 finishes to build off of, Eric Loughran jumped to five top-20 World Cup finishes in 2015, his first full season on the tour. In addition to a career best fifth place World Cup finish at Deer Valley, Loughran also claimed a NorAm win at the Utah Olympic Park. He continued to build on his success in 2016 with two top 10 World Cup finishes.

      FIRST TRACKS
      Loughran's parents were forced to teach him how to ski at the age of two after they caught him trying to teach himself by using his big sister’s skis. It was evident that he would develop a passion for the sport. At a young age, he found my love for jumps to the extent where his parents couldn’t keep up and they felt the need to place him on the Loon Mountain Freestyle Team.

      As Loughran grew up, he was eager to try excelled tricks and decided to put his gymnastics training together with skiing and began to throw back flips on snow. The next day his mom signed him up for summer water ramping camp in Lake Placid, NY to practice back flips safely under the coaching of Wes Preston. After the Lake Placid, Loughran joined the Waterville Freestyle Team at Waterville Valley for a short period, which then led him to the Elite Aerial Development Program in Lake Placid, NH and the U.S. Ski Team. 

      OFF THE SNOW
      Loughran loves being outdoors and being active. He's am not the type to sit around all day. He also spends a lot of his time on the trampoline and hanging out with friends and family.
