On Tuesday, October 18, US Ski and Snowboard officially announced the roster of 49 athletes who will make up the US Snowboard Team for the 2022-23 winter season.
Of the 49 athletes named to the team, several athletes reside in Summit County or have ties to Summit County.
On the men’s professional snowboard slopestyle and big air team, Summit’s Chris Corning and Red Gerard will once again spearhead the talent. Corning was born in Silverthorne while Gerard now lives in Silverthorne after moving from Ohio.
Corning and Gerard are two-time Olympians and competed at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China last winter.
Gerard and Corning will be joined by Sean FitzSimons, Brock Crouch and Dusty Henricksen.
The professional women’s slopestyle and big air snowboard team consists of Jamie Anderson, Hailey Langland, Julia Marino and Ty Schnorrbusch.
The slopestyle and big air rookie team consists of two promising young Summit locals, Fynn Bullock-Womble and Kaitlyn Adams. Bullock-Womble and Adams, 17, will both get their chance to make their mark on the USA Snowboard Team throughout the 2022-23 season.
With Shaun White retiring last winter, the Men’s National Professional Halfpipe Team is without a true veteran, but that doesn’t mean the team isn’t brimming with seasoned talent.
Summit’s Taylor Gold will rejoin the team for the 2022-23 season after placing fifth in the Olympic halfpipe competition last February. Gold will be joined by Chase Josey, Lucas Foster, Toby Miller and Joey Okesson.
Summit’s Chase Blackwell was not named to the pro halfpipe team after being a member last season.
The women’s halfpipe team will include Chloe Kim and Maddie Mastro.
Some of the men’s and women’s pro snowboard cross team members will be Faye Gulini, Nick Baumgartner, Stacy Gaskill of Golden, Hagen Kearney of Norwood, Senna Leith of Vail, Connor Schlegel of Edwards and Cody Winters of Steamboat Springs.
