Ski Racing Safety

Kelly was injured in 2006 after striking an unprotected lift tower in a FIS-sanctioned race. Since then, Kelly and the Kelly Brush Foundation have been committed to preventing any more injuries like hers.

We believe that the sport can eliminate serious injuries caused by striking stationary objects . The equipment and expertise exist. The only question is the whether stakeholders commit to that goal. We’re here to help. We provide safety equipment grants, advocate for safety awareness, and educate on proper safety practices. Since 2006 we’ve helped purchase thousands of rolls of b-net in every ski state in the US.
