QUOTES
Greg Boester, U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team Foundation President
I have had a great opportunity with the U.S. Ski Team, first as an athlete and then as a board member and trustee, to contribute to the momentum the organization has established. My background as a businessman and an Olympian will give me the opportunity to bring multiple perspectives in leading the Foundation's Board of Trustees.

Bill Marolt, U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association President and CEO
I am confident that Greg and Eric’s unique combination of athletic, business, resort and professional experience will make them tremendous leaders for the Foundation. All of us at the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association thank them for accepting these positions during the Olympic year.
