Olof Hedberg begins the head coach position on September 1, 2014.
He is originally from Sweden and started ski racing at age three. For the next 23 years racing became his way of life. Throughout his 20’s he raced professionally and was ranked top 160 in the world on the FIS ranking list. In 2004, he got an offer to work with Fredrik Landstedt and the UNM ski team. This position provided the opportunity to coach and pursue a Master’s degree in finance. During his time at UNM the team finished 2nd and 4th at NCAAs. He graduated with a MBA in Finance with a 4.0 GPA and spent 6 years working for RBC Capital Markets in New York City.
While in New York, Olof also became the team captain for New York Adventure Racing Association’s (NYARA) elite team. He is the race director for NYARA’s Jersey Inferno, a 10 hour adventure race in northern New Jersey that is sponsored by NYARA.
“SNSC has a fantastic reputation in the ski world and I am honored to be a part of such a success story,” said Olof. Summit Nordic Ski Club is excited to have a person of his caliber take over the lead coaching position.
