Colby Lane grew up in El Jebel, Colorado and has been skiing the Aspen mountains since he could walk. He started ski racing at age 8 and it quickly became apparent that he was something special on two skis. As a 15-year-old J3 ski racer he won the junior olympics and earned his way into the prestigious Whistler Cup, an international invite-only event for the very best of young racers around the world. Colby stepped up to the pressure and skied his way to a Bronze Medal in the Giant Slalom, proving that he was literally one of the fastest young skiers in the world. In 2012 he suffered a serious knee injury in a downhill crash and spent the winter doing rehab after surgery. Since then he has bounced back strongly and just barely missed the podium with a 4th place effort in slalom at the 2014 U18 (under 18) nationals. Now he has graduated from high school and pursuing his passion in ski racing as a full time job.
