LAWRENCEBURG, IN — Two Lawrenceburg natives will represent Team USA Skiing at the Beijing Winter Olympics.

Two-time Olympic medalist Nick Goepper will try to win Gold in Slopestyle after winning Bronze at the 2014 games in Sochi, and Silver in the same event in 2018 at Pyeongchang.

First-time Olympian Justin Schoenefeld will be a member of the US Freestyle Aerials Ski Team.

Both Goepper and Schoenefeld sharpened their skills at Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg.
