About Errol Kerr
Errol has incredibly diverse talent on the slopes; he’s competitive at an almost unheard-of discipline range including Giant Slalom, Downhill, Slalom, Super-G, Combined, and Skiercross.  Not only does Errol have the athleticism to race in such a wide variety of disciplines, his talent is such that he has a real shot of medaling in skiercross. He is one to watch on the road to Vancouver.

Born of a Jamaican father and American mother, Errol was groomed for competition on the Squaw Valley race program. Since his childhood, his love of the Caribbean island spawned dreams of representing Jamaica in international competition. As his alpine race skills grew, he realized the sport may be the avenue to fulfill his dreams. An invitation from the US Ski and Snowboard Association helped make his decision and chart his Jamaican journey.

In the winter of 2007-2008, he was the youngest of four athletes invited on the first U.S. Skiercross Team that includes ex-World Cup skiers like Casey Pucket, Jake Fiala and Spydersponsored Daron Rahlves. After considering the US call, he ultimately declined, opting instead to place his focus on Jamaica, and set out to make reality happen. Errol, his coach Raul Guisado, ski technician Eric Holmer, operations director Pat Andrews and mother Catherine Kerr constructed the team under the direction of the Jamaican Ski Federation. The US Skiercross  invitation upped the ante of his competitiveness, and instead of solely focusing on alpine events, Errol decided to throw skiercross into his repetoire. Now, not only had he made the decision to carry the weight of a national team, he increased his competitive breadth beyond most athlete’s simple consideration. Errol’s ready to rock the nation.
