Announcing the Breck Epic Pro Team!

The Breck Epic Pro Team is an elite cadre of 26 ski and snowboard athletes who call Breck home and represent the team and resort with podium placements at competitions worldwide. Recognized as the top resort team in the ski industry today, the Breck Epic Pro Team is comprised of some of the most exciting young talent in action sports. This year’s team features returning athletes such as two-time X Games Gold medalist Bobby Brown, top AFP overall world raking athletes Anna Segal and Keri Herman, former Olympic bronze medalist JJ Thomas, and Summit county native Eric Willett.


New to the team this year is UK freeski big air and slopestyle star James Woods.

“Being on the Breck Epic Pro Team means I have my home mountain as my backbone of support through my career,” said Breck Epic Pro Team rider Eric Willett.

“Breck is the mountain where I train, learn new tricks, and compete in competitions. Athletes from all over the world come to Breck to train every year; it’s definitely a privilege to have the best park in the world in my back yard. I was born and raised, started my career, married my wife – all here at Breck. Needless to say, I could not be more honored to be a part of the Breck Epic Pro Team.” 


Bobby Brown

Breck Pro Team Member Bobby Brown  This humble 22-year-old is definitely not lacking in determination and enthusiasm. A four time X Games gold medalist, Dew Cup Champion, teenage heart throb, and now an Olympic hopeful is always a treat to watch in Breck’s Freeway and Park Lane. From landing the first switch double 1260 and 1440’s to triple corks, Bobby’s bag of tricks have earned him the reputation of being one of the most progressive and stylish freeskiers on the planet.  Competing for six years, and releasing mind blowing edits with Poor Boyz and MSP all while calling Breckenridge Ski Resort his home mountain, certainly makes us proud to call Bobby a Breck Epic Pro Team rider. Don’t believe us; just check out the “Breck loves Bobby” signs in our guest’s hands at Dew Tour Mountain Championships.

In 2013, Woods made history by being crowned the World Cup Champion in men’s freeskiing slopestyle, which certainly is a long way away from learning how to ski on an indoor slope in the UK.

Anna Segal

 Breck Pro Team Member Anna Segal  Anna Segal from Melbourne, Australia calls Breckenridge home in winter to train. Competing since 2008, Anna has ranked up a hefty podium list including becoming the first freeskier from Australia to medal at Winter X Games.

When Anna isn’t claiming podium spots she spends a lot of time updating her blog and filming with her sponsors. Unfortunately in 2012 and 2013 Segal encountered injuries cutting her seasons short. As Anna makes a comeback from her injuries she will definitely be a top contender to watch leading up to Sochi.

Requesting a Breck Epic Team Home Mountain Athlete community appearance
If you are interested in having a member of the Breck Epic Team Home Mountain Athletes participate in your event, please complete the Athlete Appearance Request Form. Although the team members are eager to interact with various organizations and fans in the community, their availability due to training, travel and competitions is limited. Email requests and telephone calls will not be accepted.

    Criteria

    When considering appearance requests, we adhere to the following criteria:

    • Clear role for the athlete in the event (reading to a class, hand out awards, etc.)
    • No activities with risk of injury.
    • Description of event (not including athlete appearance). We recommend that your event NOT center around the athlete's attendance, but rather have them serve as a complement to the overall event.
    • Number of and approximate age of attendees.

    Next Steps

    Once your request has been reviewed, you will be contacted by a Public Relations representative and learn the status of your request: declined, pending, or accepted.

    In order to accommodate as many groups as possible, as a general rule, the athlete’s do not make return visits to organizations within a calendar year.

    Appearances are a very important part of our organization and we take them seriously. Please review the following list of guidelines to insure that the appearance goes well for everyone:

    • Athletes can perform a variety of tasks at an event. They may give speeches, demonstrate skills, sign autographs, pose for pictures, or read to children. Please be specific on your Athlete Appearance Request Form.
    • Due to the athletes' busy schedules, we cannot guarantee specific athletes.
    • The Breck Epic Team Home Mountain Athletes reserve the right to reschedule or cancel an appearance due to an unexpected conflict.
    • All supplies/equipment necessary for the appearance must be ready when the athletes arrive (for example, chairs and tables should already be set up when athletes arrive).
    • There needs to be a contact person working at the event who must stay with the athletes at all times.
