Biography

Brooks Dodge grew up in the shadow of Tuckerman’s Ravine in New Hampshire, and is considered one of the pioneers of extreme skiing in the United States. In addition to his Olympic appearances, he competed at the 1950 and 1954 World Championships, after winning the 1947 Eastern downhill when he was only 17. Dodge attended Dartmouth, but later earned an MBA from Harvard in 1957, before joining Cabot, Cabot & Forbes, a development firm. In the 1960s he helped develop heliskiing in the Canadian Rockies backcountry. Dodge also became a competitive glider, but in September 1978 he was involved in a severe crash in a glider accident. It took him several years to recover, but he eventually returned to the ski slopes.
