…. A trailblazer, a pioneer of her sport and an inspiration to thousands of women.

She was a leader in the sport community and an action sports icon. Every woman in freestyle skiing owes something to Sarah; she fought hard for equality and proved to the world that women deserve a place in half-pipe and slope-style.

....Every woman in freestyle skiing owes something to Sarah....

Sarah was also instrumental in having freeskiing added to the 2014 Olympic games in Sochi. Whether it was running marathons to raise money for St.Judes Children’s Hospital, traveling to work with the Women’s Sport Foundation, or coaching young skiers on the glaciers in the summertime, Sarah’s spirit of generosity, and desire to help those in need, was a defining aspect of her life.

....a space that allowed for thriving of passion and sport....

Airhouse Founder Rodney Wilson was a close friend of Sarah and says she is one of the main reasons why the notion of Airhouse came to fruition. Sarah dreamt of one day owning a training facility and to have a space that allowed for thriving of passion and sport. Airhouse is committed to the altruistic ideals embodied by Sarah’s life and her actions. This facility is a place and space for empowerment, equality, for adults and kids alike, in order to support their dreams with a platform they can learn and will grow from.

....to bolster curation of powerful woman in our community....

We love that Sarah was a pioneer in so many different ways, so we promise to ensure the momentum lasts by supporting and promoting specifically women in sport too. This summer we are launching some Girls Only Camp ideas, to keep the stoke high for young women in sport and to bolster the curation of powerful woman in our community.

We pledge to uphold Sarah’s spirit and legacy by donating a portion of the proceeds to the Sarah Burke Foundation, yet another nod to her devotion for helping others. Our wish is to see her not just remembered but revered as one of the awesome forces behind the next generation of rad girls and those following their dreams.

....Sarah, a revered and awesome force....
