WEST LEBANON, N.H. — Tecnica Blizzard USA announced its commitment to the alpine race scene with product, athletes and a return to the U.S. Ski Team supplier pool. Three new and one returning athlete have signed with Tecnica Blizzard for the upcoming season.

“Tecnica Blizzard USA is excited about our new roster of athletes and their commitment and passion for skiing,” remarked Tecnica Blizzard U.S. National Race Coordinator Joe Dunn. “We are also excited to announce our return and commitment to the USST pool and to providing the athletes with top performing products.”

Tecnica Blizzard is excited to be back as an Official U.S. Ski Team Pool Supplier offering performance skis and boots with proven results from the World Cup level to junior racers. Dunn released an official statement regarding the company’s return to the racing spotlight.

With tremendous success on the junior level and the brand’s continued commitment to junior racers and product, Tecnica Blizzard sets the stage for success at the World Cup level and welcomes the following athletes to their roster:

Bryce Bennett: USST B Team. From Squaw Valley, California, Bennett brings 6’ 8” of power into each turn. With a laid-back attitude and a Squaw Valley racing/big mountain free skiing pedigree, this power combo is a proven recipe for success.

“They make great skis and boots that make skiing fun,” Bennett said.

Kieffer Christianson: USST B Team Invitee. The Alaskan who moved East, Christianson brings a gritty, natural style and that Burke Mountain Academy/Dartmouth College mental toughness every day on the hill. A shrinking U.S. Ski team roster will not derail his push to succeed on the World Cup GS circuit.

Bryce Astle: Snowbird Ski Team, U.S. Development Team Invitee. The original #Shopkid, Bryce is a true product of Snowbird free skiing. His fluid style and snow feel have more than made up for fewer days in the gates. Astie has been on the Tecnica Blizzard team his entire career.

Will Gregorak: Team America. A U.S. national downhill champion, Gregorak is focusing his goals on a World Cup technical spot.

“If I win a NorAm title or score World Cup points and find some time for a few powder turns, that will make this next season a success for me,” noted Gregorak.
