former Nordic Combined Athlete
Adam Loomis grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, but quickly began to dream of competing and skiing around the world. After high school, Adam lived in Steamboat Springs for two years, where he continued to follow his passion (and first started fueling with Honey Stinger). Adam competed on the US Nordic Combined Team for six years, during which he called Park City, Utah, his home. His career included events as far away as Japan and Turkey, included two Nordic World Championship Team births, a second place at the 2018 US Olympic Trials, and many memorable smelly van rides.
After retiring from Nordic Combined in 2018, Adam jumped into the world of trail running. He fell in love with the simplicity and freedom of this sport and found success in his first summer of racing on the trails. Adam is always looking to explore the mountains further, whether running, scrambling, cruising on skinny skis or touring the backcountry. If you're looking for Adam now, you'll find him all the way up in Anchorage, Alaska. He couldn't pass up the opportunity to try a year in the Last Frontier when given a job offer to be the local ski jumping club's program director and head coach. When he is not shaping youngsters into champions, he's been enjoying exploring his backyard, also known as the Chugach Mountains. If he happens to be inside, Adam might be planning a new adventure, cooking up a storm or drinking a good beer.
