Nordic Nation: Troy Taylor and the Science of Sport at US Ski & Snowboard

Jason AlbertAugust 6, 2019

As the Northern Hemisphere slowly tilts towards shorter days and colder temps … and hopefully snow… we spoke with Troy Taylor at U.S. Ski & Snowboard. Taylor’s official title is that of High Performace Director. What that means is he helps coordinate the multiple moving parts involving sport science for the portfolio of teams at U.S. Ski & Snowboard.

Taylor has been in this role with U.S. Ski & Snowboard since 2015. He first worked for U.S. Ski & Snowboard in the run-up to the 2006 Olympics. Admittedly, he is enjoying the weather attributes of Utah’s sunny high desert as he is based in Park City, Utah. He originally hails from less sunny England.

That all started back in the early 1990s when he convinced a naive public radio editor he should report a story from Alaska’s, Ruth Gorge. Now, Jason’s common companion is his field-recording gear.
