Anton Grimus

Ski Cross
HOMETOWN
Mt Buller VIC
RESIDES
Mt Buller VIC

Anton grew up in Mt Buller, Australia, where his parents founded, and continue to manage, Hotel Pension Grimus, an Austrian-style pension, ski hire and restaurant. With ski cross being a relatively new sport, his background is in traditional alpine ski racing. From an early age, Anton and his brother were members of the Mount Buller Race Club. As kids, they were both very competitive. It was a rivalry which translated into their skiing and which, in hindsight has helped his progression tremendously in such a competitive sport. What many people don’t know is that Anton is also a very talented rower and it was a very close decision as to what sport he wanted to pursue professionally. Luckily for XTM and the Australian Winter Olympic team his love for the snow slightly outweighed that of water.

Anton successfully juggled his university studies with World Cup racing, completing a Bachelor of Commerce at Melbourne University and making his first World Cup podium of his career in December 2012, with a bronze medal performance in Nakiska, Canada. 

At the age of 23 Anton realised a life-long dream, competing at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. And in 2015 he was again one of the fastest in the wold with strong qualifying times. His best World Cup performance came in Arosa, Switzerland, where he placed seventh. In 2016 Anton had another outstanding performance, finishing in ninth place at the Olympic Test Event for PyeongChang. Unfortunately a knee injury has interrupted his 2017 season but he’s gained momentum as the season’s progressed and the 26-year-old is hoping his form will continue into the World Championships and the all important 2018 Olympic year.

Otherwise known as the facial artist, Anton is one of our most unique ambassadors.
