The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Athletes’ Council is organized to facilitate communication and to represent athlete interests to the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Board of Directors. As members of the Council, there is an opportunity to discuss important issues facing current and retired athletes; and in turn, influencing policy and the direction of the entire organization.
Members of the Council are stewards of the entire organization and understand the importance of being positive constituents. While it is vital that members of the Athletes’ Council represent the interests of athletes, it is important they are considered in the context of the values and mission of U.S. Ski & Snowboard.
