Slopestlye skiing Olympic silver medalist Devin Logan attributes her wild success to a free-spirited attitude and her deep passion for the sport, which she started at the early age of just two years old. Born into a family of skiers, she basically had no choice but to embrace the slopes.
Originally from Long Island, New York, when competition started to get serious Logan and her family made the move to Vermont. There she attended the prestigious Mount Snow Academy and dedicated herself to mastering the slopes without ever letting go of her childlike love for the sport.
Now an Olympic silver medalist and obviously an expert on all things skiing, we sat down with Logan to find out where she loves to hit the slopes most.
1. Mount Snow- West Dover, Vt.
Known for its impeccable terrain and high speed bubble lift (in fact, it’s the only one on the east coast), Mount Snow is Logan’s first true ski resort love.
“I’m from the East coast and I grew up skiing at Mount Snow and it’s definitely a great place for foundation, and they have one of the greatest parks in the east, so whenever I come back I always go there,” she said.
2. Park City- Park City, Utah
Logan eventually made the move out west and found a home at the resort famous for hosting the snowboarding and men’s and women’s alpine giant slalom events in the 2002 Winter Olympics Games. “I live in Park City now so I’m always skiing there as well,” she told us.
3. Mammoth Mountain- Mammoth Lakes, Calif.
Mammoth boasts 3,500-plus acres of skiable terrain, eight unbound terrain parks, and one of the longest ski seasons in North America, so it’s only natural that part of Logan’s snow-loving family would end up living near such a widely loved ski resort. “My brothers live in Mammoth and I spend sunny bluebird days in the park there,” she said.
4. Whistler- Whistler, B.C.
“Whistler is also a favorite too,” she added. And we didn’t have to ask why. Arguably the most popular skiing destination on the continent, Whistler features over 200 marked trails, 6 terrain parks, a yearly average snowfall of 460 inches, and the most skiable acres in all of North America.
