SRRC Athlete of the Week
“On fire”, on a roll”, “in the zone”, all great figures of speech intended to describe that unique state of mind that every SRRC athlete strives to tap into. As all of our team members are dedicated to achieving greatness, we wanted to highlight specific accomplishments of drive, confidence, calm, focus and athletic achievement.
Take a moment and help us celebrate our athletes and help us recognize their achievements while we encourage all to follow their journey. Let us congratulate Owen Czuday and Zach Bonner as our SRRC Athletes of the Week.
Owen Czuday is snowboarder of the week. Owen is the youngest snowboarder on the SRRC team but you’d never know it after seeing this animal attack the course! On the coldest of days Owen is always ready for another run. We can’t wait to see this little ripper’s transformation in the years to come.

Call Of The Outdoors
