Breanna Noble "Breezy" Johnson (born January 19, 1996)[2] is an American World Cup alpine ski racer on the U.S. Ski Team.[3] She competes in the speed events of downhill and super-G.

Born in Jackson, Wyoming, Johnson grew up in nearby Victor, Idaho, and made her World Cup debut in December 2015. In her first World Cup season in 2017, she finished eighteenth in the downhill standings. At the World Cup finals in March at Aspen, Johnson crashed in the downhill and suffered a tibial plateau fracture to her left leg.[4][5]

While training in Chile in September 2018, Johnson tore her right anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and will miss the 2019 season.[6][7] In the off-season, she attends Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington.[6]
