Athlete Biography

Ross Peraudo was born in Torino, Italy to an Italian father. His dad is a ski instructor and the Peraudos lived on the top of a mountain, allowing Ross to ski to and from school as a child.

Peraudo raced in the Junior and Senior World Championships in 2013. His best result was 40th in the Giant Slalom at the FIS Junior World Ski Championships in Mont St Anne, Canada.

At the age of 21, Peraudo made his Olympic debut in Slalom and Giant Slalom at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Peraudo was unlucky to record two DNF results. He completed the first of two Giant Slalom runs - but not the second, and then crashed on his first run of the Slalom in tough conditions.
