SYNC Athlete Fund 2019/20 Athletes Announced
After launching the SYNC Athlete Fund in July committing $50,000 to fund developing athletes in need, we are proud to announce the grant recipients for its inaugural season!

If we could solve the funding gap of US ski racing in one fell swoop we would, but as of now we haven’t quite figured that out...stay tuned. Some of the athletes that did not get accepted for the grant showed immense potential, and we know will be future leaders in their communities as well as on the hill.
