Sarah Burke: Ski in Peace
Our deepest condolences go to Sarah’s husband, parents, family and friends and all who knew this talented athlete. All of us at Monster are deeply saddened by this tragedy.
Sarah was a freeskiing pioneer, a five-time X Games gold medalist and an inspiring, all-around role model, who was instrumental in helping to bring freestyle ski events to the Winter Olympic Games. Sadly, the accident occurred during the course of Sarah’s training, alongside other athletes, for upcoming winter competitions.
As soon as we learned about the accident, we offered uninterrupted support to Sarah and her family. Without hesitation, we will continue to support Sarah’s family, are working directly with them to assess their needs and are committed to helping them financially.
As a company, we are privileged to work with the world’s top athletes. Sarah epitomizes the essence and spirit of why we do what we do.
