Success on the Slopes

Last year was a four-peat. And now, as the Utah Ski Team continues competition as the reigning national champs, they’re looking to make it five consecutive NCAA titles in a row. A key component in that goal is last year’s women’s slalom and giant slalom gold medalist, Madison Hoffman. Her victories were part of a dominant performance by the Utes, particularly on the women’s side, where they won all four national championship races—Utah’s Novie McCabe took home top place in the 5K freestyle and 20K classic.

Hoffman’s journey is inspiring. She returned to the slopes following a season-ending ACL injury in 2022, having qualified for the Olympics as a member of Team Australia. “I used my recovery time to fall back in love with skiing,” she notes. “I changed my narrative about approaching races. Instead of thinking ‘I have to perform,’ I switched it to ‘I get to perform and show all the work I’ve done.’ ”
