Giron garners two
top-10s in Australia
Noah Giron, a local ski cross racer, achieved two top-10 finishes competing in the final races at the Ski Cross training program at Mt. Hotham, Australia recently.
As a junior at Carson High last year, he maintained a 3.0 GPA while completing a second season with Team USA. He ranked in the top-10 in the United States.
He achieved multiple Top Ten Noram Cup finishes, 3rd place at USASA National Championships 2017, was a U.S. Grand Prix Finalist, Top 16 Mount Hotham ANC Cup, and received a Project Gold Invitation for 2016-17.
Giron is starting his third year training at Squaw Valley. His goals are to be invited to the 2018 Junior World Championships, have a podium finish in a Noram and Rev Tour race, and perform in the top-8 consistently in NorAm races.
Ultimately he has his eyes on the World Junior Championships, the X-Games, and the 2022 Olympics.
