WEST LEBANON, NH. (July 22, 2014) — Tecnica Blizzard USA commits to the alpine race scene with product, athletes and a return to the USST pool. Three new and one returning athlete have signed with Tecnica Blizzard for the upcoming season.

 “Tecnica Blizzard USA is excited about our new roster of athletes and their commitment and passion for skiing, “ commented Joe Dunn, U.S. National Race Coordinator for Tecnica Blizzard. “We are also excited to announce our return and commitment to the USST pool and to providing the athletes with top performing products.”

Tecnica Blizzard is excited to be back as an Official U.S. Ski Team Pool Supplier offering performance skis and boots with proven results from the World Cup level to junior racers.

With tremendous success on the junior level and the brands continued commitment to junior racers and product, Tecnica Blizzard sets the stage for success at the World Cup level and welcomes the following athletes to their roster. 

Bryce Bennett: US B Team. From Squaw Valley, California he brings 6’ 8” of power into each turn. With a laid-back attitude and a Squaw Valley Racing / Big Mountain free skiing pedigree, this power combo is a proven recipe for success.

Bennett commented on signing with Tecnica Blizzard, “They make great skis and boots that make skiing fun"

Kieffer Christianson: US B Team Invitee. The Alaskan who moved East, Kieffer brings a gritty, natural style and a Burke Mountain Academy/Dartmouth College mental toughness to every day on the hill. A shrinking US Ski team will not derail his push to succeed on the World Cup GS circuit. 

Bryce Astle: Snowbird Ski Team, US Development Team Invitee. The original #Shopkid, Bryce is a true product of Snowbird free skiing. His fluid style and snow feel have more than made up for fewer days in the gates. Astie has been on the Tecnica Blizzard team his entire career. 

Will Gregorak: Team America. A former US National DH champion, Gregorak is focusing his goals on a World Cup Tech spot.

Gregorak comments on the upcoming season, “If I win a NorAm title or score World Cup Points and find some time for a few powder turns, that will make this next season a success for me.”
