ABOUT ATLE

Atle Lie McGrath is one of the worlds best junior alpine racers, and currently the youngest member of the Norwegian Alpine Ski Team. One of his goals is to – some day – be one of the skiers who will carry on the Attacking Vikings’ winning tradition.

Atle’s greatest achievement to date is winning the overall Europa Cup title. To win this title at the age of 19 is an accomplishment he shares with teammate Kjetil Jansrud (2005) and Marcel Hirscher (2008). Last season Atle also won the overall Europa Cup title in Giant Slalom, was second in Slalom and Alpine Combined, and fourth in Super G. His season also included two Europa Cup victories and seven second places – in four different events. In other words, Atle is a true all-rounder!

​Atle skied his first World Cup race at the age of 18 (Adelboden, Switzerland) and scored his first World Cup points at the age of 19 (Alta Badia, Italy). ​Next season will be his first dedicated to the World Cup circuit.

TEAM

Atle greatly appreciates being a member of the Norwegian Alpine Ski team. Being able to train with – and learn from – some of the best skiers in the world is an incredible opportunity.

”Everyone works together towards the same goal, and that makes the journey that much better. The good days become even better, and the tough days much easier to handle.”

– Atle Lie McGrath


Aksel Lund Svindal and his former coach said it well – “Alpine skiing is a team sport outside of the two minutes we race”.
