Brief Biography:
Lodwick was born in Steamboat Springs. He skied down the slopes in his Moms backpack at the age of two, began jumping at the age of five on Howelsen Hill, and competing in junior events at the age of 11. He made the U.S. Ski Team at age 15. At the age of 17, Todd won his first international competition in Lillehammer, Norway and competed in his first full season on the World Cup circuit, 1994-1995. Lodwick was the first American skier to win a Nordic Combined World Cup in 1995. In 1996, he won a World Junior Championship. He met the King of Norway in 1998, after winning the Holmankollen World Cup. In 2006, with his eighth U.S. ski jumping championship title, Lodwick surpassed the 77-year old record set by Lars Haugen. In 2009, after taking two years off, he won two world titles at the World Championships in Liberec, Czech Republic.

Todd made history at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. He won a Silver Medal in the 4X5 km team event, a triumph that ended an 86 year Olympic drought. When he won his 20th U.S. National title in 2013, he said, It is pretty nice, but really just means Im getting old.

Todd counts 28 World Cup podiums with six victories among his accomplishments. With all of his achievements and humbling disappointments, he has been a force in the world of Nordic Combined for 22 years. With some tremendous awards to his name, many consider Todd Lodwick a Nordic Combined legend. Through all of his travels, he has realized there is no place like Steamboat Springs. Spending time with his children, Charley and Finn, makes coming home that much sweeter.
