A Maine native, Jeremy Cota's laidback style may be what takes him all the way. Cota already had some impressive wins under his belt before coming onto the U.S. Ski Team in the 2010 season. The 2009 NorAm Champion, Jeremy has had some great experience with winning. He flawlessly carried that experience into his World Cup rookie season and then beyond.

In 2012, four World Cup second-place finishes boosted Cota into third place in the World Cup mogul standings for the season. He also ended up fourth in the overall freestyle standings. He earned his second U.S. title in the single moguls event, along with a silver medal in the duals contest. In his five years on the team, Cota has secured seven top-three results.

Although battling a bone bruise in the 2013 season, Cota proved to be a true competitor, earning a third-place finish in Ruka, Finland before taking some time off to recover. He has his eyes set on the 2014 Games.

JEREMY SAYS
The highlight of last season, for me, was getting upgraded to first class on my flight back from Finland. I also had a blast driving Audi’s on the ice in Sweden. In terms of skiing, it was not my best season as I battled with a bone bruise in my heel for most of the year. I hope to learn from this winter and never get hurt again, because it's not as fun as people make it out to be. I'm excited for next season and am looking forward to getting my swagger back!

FIRST TRACKS
As a ski instructor at Big Squaw Mountain (a small mountain in Maine), Cota's mother was responsible for introducing him to the world of skiing. When he was about three years old, Jeremy put on his first pair of skis and soon thereafter began experimenting with alpine racing. He joined the Sugarloaf Freestyle Program when he was 12 and stuck with it, as it seemed like a much less serious style of skiing that worked well with his carefree personality. It was at Carrabassett Valley Academy in Maine, however, where he got hooked to the sport. Attending CVA for five years, Cota worked on developing his strength and skills as a mogul skier.

OFF THE SNOW
Cota stays active off the snow, whether it’s mountain biking, playing tennis or tubing down the river. “I’ll do pretty much anything that involves me being outside,” he says.
