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!
Back in April, Olympic champion and Land Rover ambassador Ted Ligety caught up with U.S. Ski Team alumnus Jonny Moseley, Olympic and World Cup champion in mogul skiing. SKI Magazine recently featured the conversation on its website.
In the hour-long conversation, the two skiing legends discuss everything from the International Ski Federation (FIS) to technique they have in common and ski tips for each other and the audience, and beyond. The video is well worth the watch. As SKI noted in the article:
Four-time Olympian and U.S. Alpine Ski Team alumnus and 2010 skicross Olympian Casey Puckett recently concluded a collective nine years of coaching Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club (AVSC) athletes, returning to the Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team as head technical coach for the women's Europa Cup team. Austin Colbert, from the Aspen Times, recently caught up with Casey to talk about his return to U.S. Ski & Snowboard.
The Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team men's speed team recently concluded their first on-snow prep camp for the 2020-21 season with a five-day giant slalom-focused camp at Official Training Site Timberline Resort & Ski Area in Mt. Hood, Ore.
Led by head men's speed coach Randy Pelkey, assisted by longtime speed coach Scotty Veenis and men's team manager Gwynn Watkins, athletes included Olympians Steven Nyman, Travis Ganong, and Bryce Bennett, as well as World Junior downhill champion Sam Morse and former University of Utah NCAA giant slalom standout Sam Dupratt.
The Modern Wellness Guide recently launched their Women in Sports Campaign, featuring four of the top athletes in the snowsports industry and two female coaches who are leading the way, including Olympic gold medalists Mikaela Shiffrin and Maddie Bowman, Olympic bronze medalist Brita Sigourney, and seven-time X Games gold medalist Maggie Voisin.
We all know U.S. Snowboard Team athletes can ride on snow, but do these skills translate to other boardsports? Scanning athlete Instagrams this off-season sure would make you think so. Skateboarding, surfing, wakeboarding and wake surfing may not be mentioned word for word in their training regiments, but there are clear crossover skills and style that makes for a very pleasant Instagram viewing experience.
When the Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team returned to snow recently at Official Training Site Copper Mountain, Colo., they didn't know what to expect. Colorado in early June, in one of the hottest summers to date?! But, the Copper Mountain and U.S. Ski & Snowboard staff pulled it off together, and it was a productive camp.
Olympic gold medalist and U.S. Alpine Ski Team alumna Julia Mancuso announced her latest endeavor, a new podcast called "Just Be Yourself with Julia Mancuso," where Julia will "welcome you into my life in a unique way and I'm excited to take you guys along with me on this adventure as we share in this journey together. I want to support your journey toward the future you dream of as you create it with unwavering determination."
