Athletes of the Week

February 26, 2021

Rylan Olson

“Rylan never turns down an opportunity to push his progression and his love for snowboarding is apparent in his riding – making any new trick he’s learned this season (there’s a lot of them) look easy. He consistently impresses his coaches with a down for anything attitude and by quietly helping his teammates push their own progression.” – Coach Jean- Marie

Stoked to have this Shred on the squad! Can’t wait to see what’s in store! – Coach Andy Gilbert

Hunter Kari

Hunter Kari has done nothing but impress this season. Hunter constantly strives to better his skiing while always offering a helping hand to other athletes on the team when in need. With a big win coming out of Jackson Hole earlier this winter we know he has a lot more to show us before we wrap up the 2021 season. It has been an absolute pleasure working with him throughout this winter and I look forward to seeing where an athlete of his caliber can take his skiing in the future. – Coach Banks Gilberti

Matthew Thurman

Matthew is an absolute pleasure to have in my group and on the SVSEF Devo team. A natural on skis who is able to attack any terrain presented to him with fearlessness and exceptional technique. In addition to his athleticism, he is a focused listener, a quick learner, and displays great sportsmanship to his teammates and coaches. I along with the rest of the SVSEF DEVO Team are excited to see what the future holds for this young skier!
