In 2012 Logan continued to make waves as one of the best women freeskiers with her arsenal of dynamic tricks. Her 12 podiums, which included two X Games medals, earned her another AFP Overall Championship title.
After winning the season-opening New Zealand World Cup halfpipe in August 2012, the start to the Olympic qualifying period, Logan suffered a blown knee. Committed to rehab and her college education, she stayed busy. That included her becoming an AFP and FIS certified judge and judged some events while injured to have a better understanding of her sport.
