QUOTES
Ian Connor,
2012 First Tracks Grand Prize winner
Everything about First Tracks was incredible! It was so amazing to meet the world's best skiers and know that they're just like you, they just want to go out and have fun skiing.
From the sweet Spyder team jackets to the unreal hotel room at the Marriott, the athletes, the people that work for the U.S. Ski Team and Nature Valley, Vail – my family came away with once in a lifetime memories and some great new friends.
Being out on the hill with the U.S. Ski Team was amazing. It really showed how hard they work to become the best.  I could feel how psyched everyone was to be out skiing and working to bring themselves to the next level. The energy was amazing!

Kaylin Richardson, Two-time Olympian and U.S. Ski Team alum
The First Tracks contest truly provides a real life view into the U.S. Ski Team. I think that there are a lot of contests out there where they say you get a VIP experience, but in reality you might get a 20 minute meet and greet. With First Tracks, you are a part of the U.S. Ski Team.
Honestly, I feel incredibly privileged to bring our fans into our world. I think it allows them to really see how much we, as athletes, truly appreciate their support and passion for skiing.
