Bob Beattie Athlete Travel Fund
Bob Beattie was an icon of the sport of alpine ski racing and one of its most passionate pioneers. He was a driving force for ski racing his entire life, counted among the sport’s leaders who built alpine ski racing into one of the pillar events at the Olympic Winter Games. He was the founding coach of the U.S. Ski Team and one of the creators of the Alpine Ski World Cup.
Bob felt deeply that all U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team athletes should have their expenses covered, especially their travel costs, and was relentless in his championing of this cause. The Bob Beattie Athlete Travel Fund is an effort to establish an endowed fund to support travel expenses for all A, B, and C Team athletes, and is named in honor of him and his tremendous efforts on behalf of the athletes.
