Global Rescue is proud to support the United States Telemark Ski Association, a non-profit that aims to promote the sport of telemark skiing through both educational sessions and competitions.  Recently, USTSA president Joshua Patrick Lanzetta wrote Global Rescue a letter of thanks for a successful collaboration this season:

Thank you for supporting USTSA and our athletes during the 2013-2014 ski season.  We hope that you enjoy the enclosed team photo, taken last month during USTSA’s National Championships, held at Bromley Mountain Resort in Peru, Vermont.

The U.S. Telemark Ski Team had an excellent competitive season this year.  In total, 11 of our team members competed in FIS World Cup events, including 4 World Cup races hosted by USTSA and the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  Our highlights include:

  • Tanner Visnick’s Bronze medal at Junior World Championships and 9th place finish at World Championships;
  • Madi McKinstry’s 5th place World Cup finish;
  • 4 athletes with top 20 World Cup finishes.

 Additionally, we hosted a few excellent domestic races this season helping us secure new members and create partnerships with new venues in the Northeast.  Ultimately, our season culminated in a closely contested National Championships, with Cory Snyder and Madi McKinstry winning the 2014 titles.  We are excited about this year’s results, as both champions are under the age of 22 and show huge potential to develop into successful World Cup athletes!

Again, a heartfelt thank-you for supporting USTSA this year.  We look forward to working with you next season.
