Athlete Advisory Group (AAG)

U.S. Paralympics Alpine Skiing has established an Athlete Advisory Group “AAG” to serve as the collective voice for its athlete population. The members of the AAG liaise with the NGB’s professional staff to foster collaboration between program staff and athletes. The current advisory group includes seven-time Paralympic medalist Laurie Stephens, who is also the USOPC Athlete Advisory Council chair for Para alpine, AAC Vice Chair Tyler Carter, Paralympic silver medalist Thomas Walsh, and two-time Paralympian Stephen Lawler.


These athletes can provide guidance and unparalleled expertise based on their experience and long-term involvement with the program. Please feel free to reach out to these athletes, as well as to the U.S. Paralympics Alpine Skiing staff to ask questions and provide input about our programs.
