Discrete Headwear signs Chris Logan and Sierra Quitiquit to its roster
Press Release, SLC, UT – October 23, 2012
Discrete Sport, LLC, a rider founded, owned and conceived headwear brand in the winter sport industry, is proud to announce the addition of Chris Logan and Sierra Quitiquit to its athlete program. Logan, equipped with some of the most stylish tricks on the competition scene and a number of strong film segments with Level 1, is ready to showcase Discrete and make a solid addition to a well-rounded Discrete athlete roster. Quitiquit, equipped with some of the biggest energy levels and a string of recent publications, is poised to keep up the momentum.
Discrete has committed to sponsor Chris because he stands out among the slopestyle and film skiing pack with a combination of technical tricks, style, and big airs. Well known as the guinea pig for all of level 1’s massive jumps, Chris put out his strongest segment yet this season and shows no sign of slowing down. Discrete is proud to help him in his future in the sport. [Click here to watch video of Chris shredding laps at Mammoth Mountain.]
Chris’s strength is jumping, but he is a multi-talented skier with great rail skills. His 2010/ 2011 season highlights include winning the North Face Park and Pipe Open slopestyle, securing him a spot at his first Winter X Games. In the 2011/ 2012 season, his second season of competing at a professional level he qualified for the finals in both of the Dew Tour stops that he competed in. This past season he aimed his focus more towards the film aspect of skiing, and with some very productive trips to Alaska, Europe, and Pemberton, BC he showed off his rounded ability in both the streets and backcountry jumping talents.
“I created and built awareness for Discrete by sponsoring amazing athletes,” said Julian Carr, Discrete Owner and professional skier. “Chris fits our program so well, it’s refreshing to know there is a kid out there with so much talent and an eagerness to work hard, that’s our formula.”
Chris will be based out of Mammoth Lakes, California again for the 2012/ 2013 season. He plans on competing in The Winter Dew Tour, along with a few other contests throughout the season. He also plans on continuing his film career with Level 1 Productions and putting out web edits with his Mammoth based crew Montage Inc./Purple City Project.
A Park City, Utah native, Sierra has been on snow since she was two years old. With a background as a ski racer and a former World Freesking Tour competitor Sierra brings a fast, aggressive and confident style to the mountain. Alta has been her home mountain for the past six seasons but skiing has led her to adventures in Chile, Argentina, Switzerland, Jackson Hole & Alaska. Last winter was a particularly successful season for Sierra. Her hard work has led to publications in Powder, Skiing & Ski Magazine as well as new opportunities for filming, travel and sponsorship.
Sierra will be based out of Salt Lake City, Utah for the 2012/ 2013 season, but has ambitious plans to keep her on the road. She’s planning a trip to Japan to ski endless powder, experience the culture and work as a model in Tokyo. Sierra hopes to find steep transitions and big airs in Jackson Hole while filming with KGB Production. Alaska is also on her hit list with a ski to surf adventure. While in Utah she will be climbing mountains in the backcountry, spinning laps at Alta and working with professional photographers. Sierra’s goals for the coming season are to, “train hard, go big, have fun and spread stoke.”
