In May 2009, Taylor was named to the United States Ski Team. Since then, his career has been full of incredible achievements. He has competed in 3 Winter Olympics.

2013 World Champion, 2-time Olympian (2014, 2018)
Sarah started ski jumping at the age of seven in her "backyard", Park City, UT. She was influenced by the Olympic Games in 2002 and her older brother, and was hooked from the first jumps. She competed in the first ever World Championship (2009) for female ski jumpers, won the first World Cup event and World Cup overall title (2012) in the history for females in the sport. She went on to win World Championships in 2013 and then become the first woman to ever ski jump in the Olympics Games with bib #1. Sarah has faced many injuries throughout her career but continues to fight for gender equality in the sport, which remains widely unfair. In addition to ski jumping, Sarah shows a huge passion for alpine skiing, ski touring, mountain and road biking, yoga, swimming and running. She recently obtained her personal trainer certification and has dreams of being a nurse.
4-time Olympian (2006, 2010, 2014, 2018), World Cup Downhill Winner
Steven is a tenacious skiier and a legend on the US Ski Team. In 2016, Nyman did something no other American Downhiller has done—podiuming four times in a row, starting with the PyeongChang Olympic test event in Jeongseon (3rd) and then Chamonix (2nd), Kvitfjell (3rd), and St. Moritz (2nd). When he's not skiing, he loves to bike, hike, water ski and spend time on his boat. Steven loves taking his balance to the next level with Skill Board.
Former Professional Ski Racer, Current Ski Race Coach
Foreste is from Berkeley and Squaw Valley, California. At the age of 16, she was named to the U.S. Ski Team. At 21, she attended Dartmouth College where she raced for their Division 1 NCAA team. As the Dartmouth Women’s Alpine Team captain, she helped the Big Green win multiple Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association championships, earned All-American honors, placed 3rd in the Nor-Am Cup GS standings her junior year, and received the 2017 Dartmouth Female Athlete of the Year award. In her senior year, she achieved a childhood dream of racing in her first-ever World Cup competitions in Soelden, Austria and Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. Upon graduating, Foreste was invited to join the elite private women’s team - Team X Alpine - for whom she proudly represented the last two years. As a Team X athlete, she qualified to race in the 2018 and 2019 Killington World Cups, and won her first-ever Nor-Am races in slalom, giant slalom, and parallel slalom. Challenging her balance and stability on the Skill Board has become an integral piece to this.
Alex was born and raised in Park City, UT. His dad was a kicker in the NFL and his mom was an Olympic downhill ski racer. They put Alex on skis at age 2, then into gymnastics at age 8, and at age 12 he began to combine the two following the sport of free skiing. It was love at first sight. He began competing almost immediately and loved pushing his limits. He was the winner of a gold medal at the 2011 Winter X Games in the big air contest. The following week, he won the gold medal in slopestyle at the 2011 FIS Freestyle World Ski Championships. He's done well, and plans to continue pushing himself in all aspects of life!
