Countdown to the 2022 Olympic Winter Games

Your Journey Begins Here.

Whether you’re an athlete who wants to compete, a fan who wants to follow the action, a parent, coach, or you just want to support the team, U.S. Ski & Snowboard has a program for you! We're built around one common goal - to provide the right resources for athletes who are inspired to be the Best in the World!

The anticipation is palpable as the FIS Ski World Cup season kicks off at Soelden, Austria on the Rettenbach glacier for what is the longest, steepest, most sustained pitch of any giant slalom on tour. Soelden is like the start of a new school year after a long summer break—hugs, happiness, and high stoke levels for a new season of ski racing.

Each fall, the Athlete’s Mountain hosts ski racers from around the globe for early-season alpine training. This Friday, Copper will welcome over 300 athletes, including local, regional and national talent, to train on Copperopolis and Ptarmigan trails. 

U.S. Freeski and U.S. Snowboard Team athletes are fired up to kick off the FIS World Cup season at the Chur, Switzerland, Big Air Friday and Saturday nights.

“I am ready for this weekend,” said U.S. Snowboard Team athlete Chris Corning, who has eight career World Cup big air podiums, including three victories. “This has been the most riding I have had going into the first scaffolding big air of pretty much any season.”

In a recent interview with Barry Svrluga and the Washington Post, two-time Olympic champion and six-time world champion Mikaela Shiffrin discussed the Olympics and the weight and pressure of it all—which she has described as an "Olympic Demogorgon"—the loss of her father and the associated grief, and the joy she has found once again on the mountain.

U.S. Ski & Snowboard today announced a multi-year partnership with RACEtech-USA, a service-based alpine equipment company committed to optimizing on-hill race gear performance for U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes.
Aerials wrapped their summer prep season at Utah Olympic Park Oct. 7

Winhall, Vermont was a busy place this past Saturday as the community and beyond came together to rally behind the U.S. Freeski and Snowboard Teams by raising more than $100,000 at their first-ever in-person fundraiser.  

Hosted by Ray and Ann Marie Forehand, parents of U.S. Freeski slopestyle athlete Mac Forehand, this incredible event was full of fans and supporters alike creating a fun-filled, lively atmosphere. There was delicious food and live music by local favorite, The Lustre Kings.  

At the recent ATOMIC media day, two-time Olympic champion and six-time world champion Mikaela Shiffrin shared with the Associated Press that she plans to ski more speed in the upcoming Olympic season. 

During the 2020-21 season, Shiffrin reduced her schedule to almost exclusively slalom and giant slalom events, though did compete in the alpine combined and super-G at the Cortina 2021 World Championships—in which she earned gold and bronze medals, respectively—despite having only trained speed a handful of times prior to World Championships.
