The son of Crazy Canuck Ken Read is one of Canada's most talented young skiers. He made his World Cup debut at the famous Schladming course in Austria in 2011, more than 30 years after his father stood atop the podium there. Read was fifth in combined at the 2011 world junior ski championships and continued to show his promise in 2012 by winning the overall NorAm Cup title. In the 2015-16, Read took the overall NorAm title, securing him a spot on the World Cup start list for the 2016-17 season. In the 2016-17 season, Read had four personal-best results, hitting the top 10 on the World Cup circuit in slalom, giant slalom and alpine combined, all while pursuing a post-secondary education at Denver University.
