PARK CITY, Utah – The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association has ended its relationship with Andreas Evers, head speed coach for the U.S. Men’s Alpine Ski Team. As reported earlier today, Evers was convicted and sentenced Thursday (April 24) in Austria on money laundering charges. A longtime, successful coach with the Austrian national team, Evers was hired by the U.S. Ski Team in 2012 and served two seasons as its head men’s downhill coach.

“Core values, including integrity, are a cultural mainstay of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association and the standard that we expect of our athletes, staff, coaches and volunteers,” said USSA President and CEO Tiger Shaw regarding the matter.

The team has no immediate plans on a replacement.
