USSA has a proud tradition of being supported by funding from generous Americans like YOU!

The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 and proceeds from the New England Snow Ball will support athletes in all disciplines of the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Freeskiing, the only teams on the international circuit that receive no federal funding. More specifically, 100% of the monies raised will help fund year-round athlete training, competition, development and educational needs in the crucial years leading up to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. 

USSA provides leadership and direction for tens of thousands of young skiers and snowboarders who share an Olympic dream while maintaining a strong adherence to the core values of team, loyalty, integrity, respect, perseverance and accountability. No athlete becomes an Olympian on their own! It requires a network of dedicated coaches, teammates and supporters. 

Developed to prepare U.S. athletes for national and international competition, the USSA provides structure for competitive skiing and snowboarding. Over the course of an athlete's career, the USSA can provide up to $2 million of support through travel, coaching staff, sports science and medicine, education and rehabilitation.  This extraordinary tradition is shared with few countries in the world. We have created programs to match donations of all sizes. Just like every second, every step, and every shot counts in the Olympics, So does every contribution to our team. Thank you!
