USSA to be Recognized as Partner of the Year

Press Release

April 8, 2013

Salt Lake City—The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) will be recognized as "Team Utah" Partner of the Year at the second Annual Governor's State of Sport Awards lunch April 16. This award will recognize USSA's efforts and accomplishments in Olympic sport and its contributions to establishing Utah as the "State of Sport"

The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, the parent of the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Freeskiing, is the national governing body of Olympic skiing and snowboarding. It provides structure and support for competitive skiing and snowboarding. Utah has been the home of the U.S. Ski Team for nearly 40 years.

"The U.S. Ski and Snowboarding Association is a tremendous asset to Utah's sport and business community," said Governor Gary Herbert. "Their Center of Excellence training and education facility attract top athletes to our state, and the events they bring to Utah provide significant economic impact and exposure. The USSA is recognized as a leader throughout the world in Olympic winter sport."

Since the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, the USSA has regularly held events in Utah. Additionally, the Center of Excellence opened its doors in Park City in 2009 providing athletes with all of their training needs under one roof and helping make Utah the center for Olympic sport in America.

"The State of Utah has a great legacy of supporting Olympic athletes with world class venues and that has continued under Governor Herbert's tenure," said Bill Marolt, president and CEO of U.S. Ski and Snowboarding Association. "The USSA is proud to call Utah home and appreciative of the community support our athletes receive in the spirit of Olympism."

In addition to the Olympian of the Year award, a Lifetime Achievement award will be presented to Spencer F. Eccles, and Olympian of the Year award will be presented to ski jumper Sarah Hendrickson.
