Earlier this week, Gus Schumacher was co-awarded the Beck International Trophy from the US Ski and Snowboard Association. This is the highest honor that US Ski and Snowboard gives out between all disciplines of skiing and snowboarding. Gus shares the honor with 11 time Alpine World Cup titlist, Mikaela Shiffrin. Gus is the first junior to win this award in 45 years, since Bill Koch in '75.
We are so incredibly proud of all the hard work he has put in over the years, from starting with AWS at 8 years old to continuing to excel in his last year as a junior skier with winning both individual and relay gold medals at World Champs. Gus is proof that with hard work and dedication, you can achieve your dreams!
