Joe Lauer wins award
May 30, 2014
Lauer was chosen from a group of 125 athletes to receive this award. Axis Freeride’s coaches nominate and then vote on the athletes to determine the winner.
Bjorn Thorsen was a Park City High School student who passed away in his sleep in 2007. He was a budding freeskiing athlete and a member of Axis Freeride. The award is presented each year to the athlete that most exemplifies the following four attributes that Bjorn embodied: enthusiasm, love of the sport, hunger to grow and improve and a caring attitude toward others.
Joe graciously accepted the award from head coach Chris "Hatch" Haslock.
