World Champion in Downhill and Overall World Cup Title Holder in Super-G, Erik is intent on making it on to the Olympic podium. Suffering from many years of chronic back pain, Erik has decided to rebuild his physical foundation with a view to leaving the back pain behind and extending his career. Erik’s determination comes from his parents having been mentored by his dad, Conrad, who is a very successful ski coach. Conrad is still helping out his son at the age of 70. The proud father of a 3 year old daughter, Erik wishes to inspire his children to pursue their dreams.
This promising young athlete is already on the verge of the World Cup podium. Like Alex Bilodeau, Mikael possesses incredible aerial skills. Training alongside Jenn and Alex this past summer has allowed him to gain insight as to what it takes to get to the top.
