Jamie Anderson, Maddie Bowman and Hannah Teter live in Meyers, the small community of 3,000-residents just west of South Lake Tahoe. Their Olympic achievements make for an impressive per capita gold medal total.

Anderson, 23, won her gold medal in the women’s inaugural snowboard slopestyle competition at Sochi, Russia.

Teter, 27, was a 2006 gold medal and 2010 silver medal winner in snowboarding halfpipe. She finished fourth at Sochi.

The Olympians will travel on a fire truck from South Tahoe High School onto Highway 50, past the airport and through the town of Meyers, concluding their trip for a celebration at Sierra-at-Tahoe resort. Community members can line Highway 50 at 1 p.m. March 15 to cheer the Olympian procession as it drives by.
