Olympic experience
At the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, Logan won a silver medal in the inaugural freeski slopestyle event. She had tried to qualify for the U.S. halfpipe team as well but narrowly missed the cut.

Olympic outlook
Logan is the only female skier attempting to make the U.S. Olympic team in both halfpipe and slopestyle. She'd be a medal contender in either event.

Potential Olympic records
If Logan earns a halfpipe medal in PyeongChang, she could potentially become the first skier to win medals in both slopestyle and halfpipe, the two freeskiing events currently on the Olympic program.

Signature
Because she competes at a high level in all three of the major freeskiing disciplines (halfpipe, slopestyle and big air), Logan is considered to be one of the most well-rounded female freeskiers.

Ski beginnings
Growing up in Vermont, Logan had easy access to Mount Snow and was competing on skis at a young age. She tried moguls and ski ballet, but was particularly drawn to Alpine racing. Her two older other brothers had gotten into freeskiing though, and they ultimately convinced Logan to follow in their footsteps.

In 2010, Logan was invited to the junior world championships, where she won bronze medals in both halfpipe and slopestyle. Two years later, she took gold in slopestyle.

Just before her 18th birthday, Logan earned her first X Games invites for both halfpipe and slopestyle. "That was the year [2011] when I finally broke through and people and sponsors started noticing me," she says.

Road to Sochi
A knee injury cost Logan the 2012/13 season and nearly put her Olympic hopes in jeopardy. During her rehab time, she became a certified judge, which helped her understand the intricacies of what she and other skiers are being evaluated on in their runs. When she made her comeback the following season, it was Olympic qualifying time, and she used that knowledge she had gained to help land a spot on the U.S. Olympic slopestyle team.

Since Sochi
Logan has won four consecutive AFP overall titles — which factor in skiers' results across the board in halfpipe, slopestyle and big air — dating back to 2014. In total, she's won six of the last seven overall titles. Though she hasn't been dominant in any one particular discipline, she has consistently posted solid results in whatever she competes in.

2016/17 season recap
Logan had several podium finishes throughout the season. Most notably, she won bronze medals at X Games Norway (for slopestyle) and the world championships (for halfpipe). She also finished second at the Olympic test event for freeski halfpipe that was held in PyeongChang.
