Madison Hoffman is an Australian alpine skier who competes in the slalom and giant slalom disciplines. She was selected for her first Australian Olympic team for the Beijing 2022 Winter Games but a devastating ACL injury, sustained just days out from the Games, ruled her out of competition.

Considered one of the young Australian talents, Madi has been a member of the Australian National Alpine Ski team since 2016 and is no stranger to competition after having first competed from as young as age five alongside brother, Tom Hoffman. 

Originally from Sydney, she is now based in the U.S. where she competes for the University of Utah ski team. The Australian ski racer quickly formed part of ‘Team X’ – an innovative, female alpine ski program designed to develop a race training pathway with a focus on family and an environment without the pressure of meeting certain seasonal criteria. Her Australian home club remains the Thredbo Ski Racing Club. 

In 2015, the up-and-coming talent enjoyed a clean sweep across all three events, alpine, slalom, and skier cross at the Thredbo Ski Racing Club Cup. By 2016, Madi was a first-year FIS athlete, competing at the 2016 Australian National Junior Championships and the 2016 Australian New Zealand Cup (scoring an impressive first and second in the GS races), and representing Australia as a junior at the 55th Trofeo Topolino race in Folgaria, Italy. She was later recognised with the Rising Star award at the Ski and Snowboard Australia Athlete of the Year Awards for her incredible break-out season. 

The reigning U/18 junior champion took to the slopes of Thredbo again for the first leg of the 2017 Australian New Zealand Cup to claim 12th and ninth in the two giant slalom races, finishing race two in 7th position. 

By 2019 the national alpine ski team member had claimed an exciting seventh place in the Ladies Slalom Nor-Am Cup at Olser Bluff, Canada but unfortunately, a ruptured patellar tendon suffered during a giant slalom run, saw her miss the remaining domestic season.  

The 21-year-old returned to competition in Nakiska, Canada in December of 2019 after undergoing knee reconstruction surgery. On return, she achieved a fourth-place finish in the NorAm Giant Slalom and a sixth-place finish in the NorAm Slalom, two of her six top-10 results in NorAm for the season. 

During the 2020/21 season, she enjoyed a slew of success with victories in the women’s giant slalom in Steamboat Ski and Resort, Mount Werner, and in the Snow King/Jackson Hole. 

Coming off a good 2020/21 season, Madi took part in her third World Junior Alpine Championships and achieved some highlight results, including a second-place finish in the Slalom at the U.S. Nationals. 

In 2021, Madi competed in her second-ever world cup at the slalom event in Killington, USA but missed out on qualifying for the second run with only the top 30 progressing.
