After graduating from Denver University in May 2019,  Erik shifted all his attention to his ski career. In the 2017/18 season, Erik qualified for his first Olympic Games, finishing 11th in the giant slalom and 29th in the slalom. He closed out that season by winning the Canadian National Championship slalom title for the third time in his career. Erik’s 2018/19 season was highlighted by 5 top-30 results, including a 12th place finish in the Giant Slalom in Val d'Isere, FRA. Throughout the 2019/20 season, Erik earned a career-best 7th place finish in the giant slalom in Soelden, a result he will look to build on. Erik’s brother Jeff is also a member of the team, and the siblings look to follow in the footsteps of their father, famed Crazy Canuck Ken Read.
