A letter from Devin Logan, 2014 Olympic Silver Medalist/Slopestyle Skiing to the industry:

This month I will have the incredible opportunity to compete in front of thousands of fans at the legendary Fenway Park. The Polartec Big Air at Fenway will feature big air snowboarding and freeskiing on a 140-foot high snow ramp, taller than the light towers at the ballpark. I am proud to represent the U.S.A. on a world stage and I am grateful to have the American support here at home! 

I have been lucky to be able to follow my dreams and have the chance to compete against the best freeskiers in the world. It is because of supporters like you that I am able to have these opportunities.

When you support the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, you are encouraging the dreams of all current and future athletes. That generosity provides U.S. skiing and snowboarding athletes with club programs, coaches education and development tools that help grow the sport and build a stronger future.

While many of our competing countries receive funding from their government, the U.S. team relies on the support of the American people to fund our programs. These programs include world-class training facilities, Best in the World coaching, technicians, sport scientists and medical staff, all of which are necessary to compete at a top level.

That’s why I know you will help support the dreams of the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Freeskiing athletes with your generous contribution of $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, or even $1,000. The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Foundation is a registered 501 (c)(3) organization, and your generous gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law.

Thank you again for allowing me to follow my dream!

Dream Big! Go Big!
