U.S. Ski & Snowboard Announces 2021-22 HomeLight Foundation Series for Alpine, Freestyle, Snowboard, Freeski
U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced today HomeLight, the real estate technology platform transforming the home buying and selling process for top real estate agents and their clients, as the title sponsor of the HomeLight Foundation Series, a series of grassroots competitions in four of the Olympic national governing body’s winter sport disciplines. The HomeLight Foundation Series events include the U.S. leg of the FIS NorAm for both alpine and freestyle skiing and the HomeLight U.S. Revolution Tour for freeski and snowboard halfpipe, slopestyle and big air.
The HomeLight Foundation Series is the most prestigious North American series for all four sports and serves as the catalyst to kickstart the careers of the nation’s top up-and-coming athletes. Each event operates as part of U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s athletic pipeline, providing athletes a pathway toward elite level competitions, such as Junior Worlds, Europa Cups and FIS World Cups for alpine and freestyle, and Junior Worlds, FIS World Cups and the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix for freeski and snowboard. HomeLight’s support of the critical grassroots event series demonstrates the company’s commitment to growing the sports at the developmental level.
As the leading real estate technology company powering the businesses of top real estate agents and their teams nationwide, HomeLight is dedicated to building the foundation of world-class teams—and the tight-knit communities across the country that they call home.
“As a significant partner of U.S. Ski & Snowboard for three years, HomeLight’s sponsorship expansion truly highlights its commitment to furthering our competitions, teams and athletes that help our communities thrive,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s Chief Commercial Officer Michael O’Conor. “Every year we see fresh faces make their mark through the NorAm circuit and the Rev Tour, and we’re thankful to have HomeLight deepen their investment in the ski and snowboard community as these athletes make their way to becoming Best in the World.”
The HomeLight Foundation Series for alpine is scheduled to take place at Colorado’s Copper Mountain Resort in November before swinging through Burke Mountain, Vermont; Whiteface Mountain, New York; and Sugarloaf Mountain, Maine. The HomeLight Foundation Series for freestyle begins in Winter Park, Colorado with Selections and moves on to competitions at Deer Valley Resort, Utah; Killington Resort, Vermont; and the Utah Olympic Park. The Rev Tour season will kick off at Mammoth Mountain, California in January before heading to Colorado’s Aspen/Buttermilk and Copper Mountain.
“HomeLight is thrilled to continue to partner with U.S. Ski & Snowboard to help build the foundation of an elite team,” said HomeLight’s Senior Vice President of Marketing, John Van Slyke, III. “Everything we do at HomeLight is laser-focused on the singular goal of building and supporting world-class teams—in real estate and beyond.”
