Two weeks of time back in the States with family wasn’t really enough – but the clock has run out…Catching a flight back to Edinburgh in about 4 hours but before I left, I wanted to give some props to my daughter’s new employer, the US Ski and Snowboard Association.
The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) is the national governing body of Olympic skiing and snowboarding. It is the parent organization of the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Freeskiing. Developed to facilitate participation in national and international competition, the Olympic sports organization provides structure for competitive skiing and snowboarding. From grassroots programs to governance of sport, management of rules, competitions and athletic rankings, the USSA oversees athletic pipelines for development in the sports. With a vision to make the USA the best in the world in Olympic skiing and snowboarding, the USSA provides leadership and direction for tens of thousands of young skiers and snowboarders who share an Olympic dream while maintaining a strong adherence to core values. The USSA, established in 1905, operates out of the national training and education facility, the Center of Excellence, in Park City, UT.
We are excited that she is getting to go home to Park City to live and work (and I’m a little excited that I now have an excuse to go out and ski more often).
Go Team Sochi! Go USA!
