Gunnar Sorensen, Athletic Director/Alpine Race Academy Head Coach


Gunnar Sorensen is a ten-year veteran of Alpine Coaching. Returning to Loveland Ski Club following his experience with the US Ski Team’s ‘Women’s Europa Cup Technical Team, he is poised and ready to lead the first group of young racers in the newly formed Alpine Race Academy. Prior to his involvement with the US Ski Team, Gunnar spent seven years with LSC developing racers within every age group. Gunnar has been a part of positive change at LSC throughout the years and is excited to continue the club’s philosophy of providing the best alpine training in the country – thereby striving to produce world-quality race athletes!
Gunnar grew up skiing with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. After high school he went to Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana where he was a member of their first-ever USCSA National Championship Ski Team. After transferring to CU-Boulder, Gunnar graduated with a dual degree in Finance and Management. In his spare time Gunnar enjoys all that Colorado has to offer – dirt biking, mountain biking, playing hockey, hiking, camping, and traveling.
“I am really excited to be a part of Loveland’s new Alpine Race Academy! I feel that with my newly gained perspective on the world of ski racing, proper development with younger athletes is the key to America’s future success in Alpine Skiing. I am excited to begin the development of this select group of young athletes with the goal of ensuring that each athlete will reach their full individual potential!”
