It is with great sadness that FIS learned about the passing of Jeff Shiffrin, who passed away on Sunday, 2nd February.
Jeff Shiffrin with his wife Eileen made Vail, Colorado their home decades ago, and together raised two remarkable alpine ski racers. Taylor Shiffrin was a member of the two-time NCAA Champion University of Denver Ski Team. Olympic and World Champion Mikaela Shiffrin’s skiing success is unprecedented.
Jeff was an anaesthesiologist with Vail Health and Anaesthesia Partners of Colorado, treating and helping many injured skiers and riders. He was an avid photographer, often having travelled to Mikaela’s World Cup races photographing Mikaela and other U.S. Ski Team athletes. His contributions to all aspects of the skiing and riding world are immeasurable.
FIS would like to offer its deepest condolences to the Shiffrin family, friends and loved ones as well as to U.S. Ski and Snowboard.
