Kyle Negomir is a 19-year-old ski racer living in Avon who is currently looking at a couple of great opportunities for the upcoming season.

Because his past years have produced such good results, he is not only on track to make the U.S. Ski Team, but he has also deferred for a year from Dartmouth where he has been accepted to attend and ski for their team next year. Not bad options for an athlete of his age.

Negomir moved to Avon from Littleton three years ago to attend Vail Ski & Snowboard Academy and train with Ski & Snowboard Club Vail.

The tech skier says he’s in Vail and the Eagle River Valley year-round when he’s not competing.

 “I work and cross-train at Minturn Fitness Center during the summers,” he said. “Live with all my best friends, ski race and travel the world in the winter. It’s pretty awesome.”
