Devin Logan, or “D-Lo” as her friends call her, is an all-around talented freeskier that has competitive achievements in halfpipe, slopestyle and big air. The proof is in her resume--an Olympic slopestyle silver medal, five overall AFP titles (including 2016), an X Games silver medal and multiple Dew Tour, World Cup and Grand Prix podiums.
Logan's careeer kicked off in 2010 when she hit the podium in both slopestyle and halfpipe at the FIS Junior World Champioinships and the Aspen/Snowmass Open. In 2011, Logan made her X Games debut in both halfpipe and slopestyle and then went on to earn her first U.S. halfpipe skiing title and the overall AFP crown to cap her rookie season. She fully burst onto the scene in 2012 with 12 podiums, her first X Games medal and her second AFP Overall Championship title.
After winning the season-opening New Zealand World Cup halfpipe in August 2012, Logan suffered a blown knee, which forced her to the sidelines for almost a year. Committed to rehab and her college education, she stayed busy. That included becoming an AFP and FIS certified judge, and judging some events while injured to have a better understanding of her sport. That commitment and sport knowledge paid off just in time for her to hop back on the 2013-2014 competition circuit and qualify for a spot on the inaugural U.S. Olympic Slopestyle Team. In Sochi, Devin threw one of the best runs of her life to take home the silver medal and make freeskiing history.
Logan had a successful 2015 season highlighted by two Grand Prix podiums and a win in halfpipe at the Canadian Open Championship. The 2016 season started right with a win at the New Zealand Winter Games, but then hit a rough spot when she dislocated her shoulder at the Dew Tour in early December. She was back on point by January, however, when she scored second place in halfpipe at the Mammoth stop of the U.S. Grand Prix.
