More on Luke Brown: As the youngest of three Minnesotan brothers, Luke learned about competition, tenacity, and the quest to keep up from a young age. Whether it was scootering around the neighborhood, playing table tennis in the basement, or biking around the city parks of Minneapolis, he had an active childhood. He poignantly remembers the day his dad declared he was old enough to first try skate skiing and he has been on a journey for an abundance of enjoyment, the satisfaction of personal improvement, and the thrill of victory ever since. 

Luke took his passion for skiing and everyday rigor to Dartmouth College. There, he studied Physics and English, realized that running on a trail was better than a road, and earned two NCAA Skiing All-American titles. After graduating, Luke moved to Bozeman to continue pursuing his athletic dreams at a high level with the Crosscut Mountain Sports Center. In his first year on the USBA X-Team, he had three top-15 results for Americans at XC Ski Nationals, raced for US Biathlon at Open European Championships and an IBU Cup, and earned start spots for Team USA at the domestic XC Ski World Cups in Quebec City and Minneapolis.

My dream vacation spot is… Svalbard, Norway

My favorite meal is… Annie’s Mac White Cheddar
If I were not an athlete, I would... probably have more productive afternoons

When traveling, the thing I miss the most is… my family and the local mountains

I never leave my house without… a positive attitude and a plethora of puns
