Sierra-at-Tahoe will be represented at the 2014 Winter Olympics by three athletes.
Jamie Anderson – Women's Snowboard Slopestyle
Hannah Teter – Women's Ski Halfpipe
Maddie Bowman – Women's Ski Halfpipe
“Whether your child has a goal of skiing/snowboarding in college, getting on the podium in the X Games or further developing skills for a full life skiing and riding in the mountains, the Sierra-at-Tahoe family of coaches and athletes are here to support your goals,” a Sierra press release stated today.
Anderson, Bowman and Teter will be in Aspen, Colorado, this weekend (Jan. 22-26, 2014) for the Winter X Games.
Jamie Anderson, women's snowboard slopestyle, is riding very strong and will look to land on another X Games podium this weekend in Aspen.
Anderson has won Slopestyle gold at Winter X Games four times, including last season. She was the youngest Winter X gold medalist ever in 2007.
With a large bag of tricks, smooth style, and consistent riding, she is a strong favorite heading into this year's Women's Slopestyle. Anderson will compete Saturday.
Maddie Bowman, women's ski superpipe, continues to ski well and will look to build on her first-place finish in Aspen last season.
Bowman has earned a podium twice in the past three seasons at X Games and will look to defend her title. Bowman is set to compete Friday.
Hannah Teter is no stranger to Winter X Games and big events. The women's snowboard superpipe competitor has her sights set on a podium finish at Winter X Games.
Teter is determined to land on the podium using multiple tricks and big amplitude. Teter will drop-in Saturday for her chance at a medal.
In addition to a strong athlete connection to Winter X Games, Sierra-at-Tahoe has a longstanding relationship with SPT, the company responsible for designing and building all of the courses at Winter X Games.
SPT provides Sierra Resort with training, guidelines, building resources and design ideas throughout the winter season. That same brainpower is now building and maintaining the Slopestyle, Big Air and Pipe for Winter X Games and contributes to Sierra Resort athletes training, and competing on the best freestyle terrain in the nation.
