A former Olympic skier, Jeremy Nobis, was found de@d in his cell on Wednesday (19 April 2023)—the 52-year-old finished tenth in the giant slalom for Team USA at the 1994 Winter Olympics.
The Cedar City, Utah Critical Incident Task Force reports that Nobis was found alone in his cell after no one came to check on him.
A statement said: “Life-saving efforts were attempted by Iron County Jail staff.”
“Although no foul play is suspected, the Critical Incident Task Force is looking into this incident,” it continued.
St. George News reports that while awaiting sentencing for a DUI conviction, Nobis “p@ssed away.” Reports indicate that on March 7, he was found guilty of driving under the influence and that on April 25, he will be sentenced.
Ski Magazine published an article a few weeks before Nobis was arrested, detailing the charges against him in Colorado, Idaho, and Wyoming.
During his time on skis, Nobis earned the nickname “The Icon” for attempting some of the world’s most challenging climbs.

In the late 1980s, he joined the American Alpine Ski Team and won two World Junior Championships in 1988 and 1989. In a statement announcing Nobis’ pἀssing, the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team said: “U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s thoughts and condolences are with his family, friends, and the ski community.”
Nobis’s brother, Shannon, competed in the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, and represented the United States.
