US Ski Team Members and local skiing legends will join forces to host a fundraiser for long time South Lake Tahoe resident, Pam Warman, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. The Fundraiser will be held at Sierra-at-Tahoe on April 13th, 2010, with fun races, dinner party and auctions, including items donated by current and former US Ski Team members, friends and local businesses.
A Native of Chile, Pam has been living in South Lake for last 15 years working in the ski industry. She started her career in Portillo, but it wasn't long until she discovered her passion for the precision of a well tuned ski. Upon moving to the South Shore, Pam worked as a ski instructor at Heavenly Mountain Resort during the day and ski shops at night.
Word quickly spread about her skills and within just a few short years of learning to ski, Pam was one of the most respected ski techs in the industry. The pinnacle of her career came shortly thereafter when she was the first female service person ever for the US Ski Team on the World Cup circuit.
Known to be the best female serviceperson in the world, current and former members of the US Ski Team are ralling around Pam and showing her support. Several team members, including Bode Miller, Julia Mancuso, Bryon Friedman and Steve Nyman, have donated items - some from the Olympics - to be auctioned off during the fundraiser with all proceeds going to support Pam's medical needs.
"Having been active in the Lake Tahoe community from the greater portion of 15 years, I am always amazed at the generous spirit and the tenacity of the people who live here," explained Pam Warman. "Now that I have been diagnosed with breast cancer, I am once again in awe of the infinite support that is rising up to help me. The gifts of love, kindness and generosity will make me stronger, wiser and more compassionate as I move down my path of healing. And I am so grateful for all the love I have received from everyone, I am truly blessed."
"The Atomic Mafia descended on Laax, Switserland, last December. A men's Europa Cup downhill was underway, and top representatives from the company's factory where there to cast a strategic eye over the athlete field, scouting for potential Atomic talent.
Scanning the results page they noticed that an American racer, Bryon Friedman, had won the split on the upper portion of the course, which is billiard-table flat. Friedman skied on Atomics, so the factory guys set out for the wax room to find the serviceman who had clearly nailed the prep. They wanted to congratulate the guy.
They found themselves face to face with an outspoken fireplug of a woman - Pam Warman, one of the most respected technicians on the U.S. Ski Team staff and perhaps the top female serviceperson in the world."
