Staff reports

Sierra-at-Tahoe athlete and Meyers resident Hannah Teter was voted Best Female Action Sports Athlete at the 2006 ESPY Awards show last Wednesday in Los Angeles. Teter, who won the gold medal in halfpipe at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy, was also nominated for Best U.S. Olympian and Best Female Athlete.

“We are so proud of Hannah and all that she has accomplished in her snowboarding career,” said Sierra-at-Tahoe General Manager John Rice. “We are honored that she has selected Sierra-at-Tahoe as her home mountain and we hope to help her fulfill her goals as she progresses in the sport. She is a great addition to the Sierra team.”

Teter trained at Sierra last winter but will officially be a member of the 2006-07 team, joining brothers Abe and Elijah in what is shaping up to be a star-studded team.

The 2006 ESPY awards show aired on ESPN on Sunday night (tape delayed).
