Champion Alpine Skier - Canadian Cowboy

Erik Guay

Coming back from off-season surgery, Erik Guay set his sights on making Canadian history as he prepared for what would be a defining season for the 2011 World Downhill Champion.

A founding member of the Canadian Cowboys – Canada’s most dominant generation of alpine rulers since the Crazy Canucks – the 32-year-old from Mont-Tremblant set an ambitious goal of chasing down Steve Podborski’s Canadian record of 20 World Cup podiums. And on a beautiful day in Bormio, Italy in December 2013, he stood atop the podium in the men’s downhill to become Canada’s all-time leader with 21.

Erik’s past Olympic performances and his growing family have also given him added motivation leading into Pyeongchang 2018.

At the 2010 Olympics, Erik opened with a fifth place finish in the prestigious downhill event and a few days later was just 0.03 agonizing seconds from a podium performance in the Super-G. Combined with his fourth place Super-G finish in Torino 2006, the Olympic podium has proved both elusive and worthy of the pursuit.

As a father of three beautiful girls – Logann, Leni and new-born Marlo – Erik, and his wife Karen, will look to juggle a busy ski schedule with an active family life and some sleep.
