Introducing the Friends of Liz Collection • Sochi 2014
Posted on 30 November 2013
This winter is particularly special with the Sochi Olympics just a few weeks away. Our loved and supported athlete, Liz Stephen, is a smiley and super speedy Cross-Country ski racer from East Montpelier, Vermont. With a World Cup podium and a 5th place finish in last year's World Championships under her belt, Liz is one of the best hopes for a U.S. medal in the distance events at Sochi.
We’re excited to release this year's Friends of Liz Collection in time for winter and the ensuing ski season. All proceeds from the collection will go to support Liz Stephen as she continues to prepare for her second Olympic games. This super special print and commemorative Sochi 2014 label was designed in collaboration with Liz for her fourth annual collection. See it here!
Liz Stephen grew up in east Montpelier, Vermont and attended Burke Mountain academy with Skida founder Corinne prevot. Once an alpine ski racer at Burke, Liz recognized her love for endurance sports. She switched to Nordic skiing and flourished in the pursuit of Cross-Country ski racing. As a Seven time national champion, Liz continues to race at the highest level and is now a seasoned World Cup competitor. Last season was a breakthrough year for Liz and the US women's ski team, claiming multiple podium finishes across the globe. Support Liz this year as she goes for the gold!
