Aidan Ripp remembers learning to classic ski as a 4-year-old in the front lawn of his family home on cooler nights in Duluth, Minnesota. As he has progressed into the sport, he has come to believe that an unhealthy mind means an unhealthy body, so we work hard to train both during the off-season. Diversifying training is important to Ripp, because it helps keep him fresh and his passion for the sport alive.
Ripp dabbles in lots of hobbies outside of skiing, including cross country running, marathon canoeing, soccer, mountain biking, road biking, and sailing. He also enjoys playing his guitar, baking bread, woodworking, and playing competitive cribbage.
Ripp’s sister, Charlotte, is also a member of USA Nordic’s Junior National Team. Currently, he attends Paul Smith’s College.
