Mount Snow to Honor Hometown Olympian

Ski resort plans parade for Olympic silver medalist

Ski slopestyle silver medalist Devin Logan is heading home, but her trip to West Dover, Vermont this week won’t be an ordinary hometown return.

Mount Snow, the ski resort where Logan trained for much of her pre-Olympic career, is gearing up for a huge celebration in her honor and the town has even dubbed this upcoming Saturday “Devin Day.”

The resort plans to host a parade in honor of the Olympian and locals are invited to support her as she rides through town toward Mount Snow’s Main Base Area where she’ll then be presented with the “Key to the Valley.” Following the parade and the presentation Logan will sign autographs and take photos with fans.

“For all of us at Mount Snow, and in the Mount Snow Valley, to say we are proud of Devin is an understatement,” the resort’s most recent email newsletter read.

In their newsletter the resort also mentioned that they have a few big surprises in store for Logan, however they won’t be revealed until the celebration on Saturday.

If her Twitter profile is any indication of her excitement, it seems Logan is very much looking forward to the celebration. Last Thursday she tweeted:

One of the best freestyle skiers in the world, Logan attributes her success to a down-to-earth, fun-loving attitude both on and off the slopes. When we sat down to chat with her last month she described her skiing style as fun and wacky.

“I just like having fun with it because that’s why I started skiing. I love the sport and I don’t want to put any extra pressure on myself. I’m always cracking jokes at the top of the course and cheering on everyone else, so I think that portrays in my skiing also,” she said.
