Gear Guide: Marco Sullivan Becomes Ambassador for Blizzard Tecnica
Blizzard Tecnica announced that Marco Sullivan has been named to the Ambassador Program. Sullivan, a highly decorated speed skier with over 150 World Cup starts, will represent Blizzard Tecnica on and off the slopes.
Sullivan is recognized as a highly skilled world-class ski competitor and personality. As an ambassador to the Blizzard Tecnica program, he will bring the brand to the next level in the racing community at races and on-snow events.
“I am truly excited to be a new ambassador for Blizzard Tecnica!” commented Sullivan. “I am on the hill almost every day in the winter and whether I am racing, freeskiing or ski touring, Blizzard Tecnica has a set-up that fits my needs. After 17 years on the U.S. Ski Team, I can appreciate great equipment and joining the Blizzard Tecnica team has revitalized my skiing.”
Sullivan, who grew up in Lake Tahoe, started in three Olympic Winter Games and competed in four World Championships. Sullivan retired in 2016 at Kvitfjell World Cup downhill, where he placed 18th.
Pearson Neal, National Competition Manager for Blizzard Tecnica, went on to say, “It is great to bring such a solid and well known team player into our Ambassador program. We are fired up to start working with Marco on his new endeavors as well as his American Downhiller Camps. Marco is a great person who will help us bring the program to the next level.”
Sullivan continues his love of skiing as a NASTAR pacesetter at championship races across the country. He also founded American Downhiller with other world-class coaches and racers, to offer the best coaching to up and coming downhill racers. The camp launched in 2017 in Mammoth Mountain and will expand dates and locations for 2018.
