PARK CITY, UT- At this past Friday’s US Grand Prix, Carinthia Pro Team skier and Dover native Devin Logan officially made the 2014 US Olympic Team in women’s ski slopestyle. Logan is the second Carinthia Pro Team skier to make the inaugural US Olympic ski slopestyle team after C-Teamer Nick Goepper was the first athlete to qualify for the team on December 21.

Logan grew up at Mount Snow and in addition to attending Mount Snow Academy she was a member of the Freestyle Competitions Program. Before that, she competed in the Grommet Jam series, which is a friendly terrain park event for kids age 12 and under that still takes place at Mount Snow. Her professional career began in 2011 at the age of 17 when she was the only female to compete in both superpipe and slopestyle at the Winter X Games. That year, as a rookie, she earned the Association of Freeskiing Professionals Overall World Championship, and then won the same title again in 2012.

Nick Goepper has been a member of the Carinthia Pro Team for three years and has taken the professional freeskiing world by storm. Shortly after earning slopestyle gold at the 2013 Winter X Games, he made it to the top of the AFP men’s slopestyle world rankings and hasn’t relinquished that position since. Nick met US Olympic Team selection criteria after being the top American finisher in the first two Olympic selection events.

Also, hometown girl Kelly Clark was the first female snowboarder to be named to the 2014 US Olympic Team in women’s snowboard halfpipe. This will be Clark’s fourth Olympic competition. She is the most decorated snowboarder, male or female, in the history of the sport with more than 60 wins during her legendary career.
