Quiksilver announced today the addition of freeskier Lyman Currier to their global snow team. After making waves on the freeskiing contest circuit in 2012 and 2013, Currier was part of the inaugural United States freeski halfpipe team for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. He joins a Quiksilver team populated by snow sport legends, including freeskier Candide Thovex and snowboarder Travis Rice.
“I am very excited to have Lyman join our amazing team of snow athletes,” said Garry Wall, Senior Vice President of Global Brand Marketing for Quiksilver. “He is a great addition to the team and will strengthen our position in ski for North America. We look forward to building his profile and helping him to reach his full potential.”
“I am super excited to be part of such an amazing team,” said Currier. “Being on the same roster as Candide and Travis is unbelievable and I hope to have the same success with Quiksilver as they have had.”
During the 2013-2014 season, Currier landed on the podium three times, including a win at the Park City Grand Prix. The Boulder, Colorado native finished third overall in the Association of Freeskiing Professional’s season rankings. After suffering a knee injury at the Olympic Games, Currier looks to return to podium finishes in 2015.
His upcoming competition schedule is as follows:
Mammoth Grand Prix: February 4-7
Park City Grand Prix: February 24-28
SFR Tour: March 9-15
Euro Open: March 19-21
Dumont Cup: March 26-28
