Riley Seger joined the Canadian team in 2016 from the Whistler Mountain Ski Club, and the native of North Vancouver, B.C. has already made a name for himself in Canadian ski racing. After skiing in the NCAA with the University of Montana, Seger is looking to take the next step in his international career with the national program.
After enjoying success on the Nor-Am circuit in 2018-19, Riley reached his long-time goal of racing in a World Cup event when he made his debut in Sölden, AUT in 2019. However, his 2020-21 World Cup season was much more successful, crossing the super-G finish line for the first time in Val D’Isere, FRA and following it up with a similar result in Val Gardena, ITA.
Building on this success, Riley netted his first World Cup points in 2021-22 with a memorable 22nd place finish in the downhill at Beaver Creek after starting with bib 57, shocking the crowd when he crossed the finish line. His breakthrough season came in 2022-23, however, as he cracked the World Cup Top-30 four times, including a career-best 10th place finish in the super-G in Aspen, Colorado.
While skiing and school take up much of Riley’s time, he has made sure to give back to his community. In June 2020, he was awarded the ALS Society of British Columbia’s Leader of Tomorrow Award for raising almost $9,000, alongside his uncle, as part of Team ALS B.C. in 2021’s Vancouver Marathon.
