Olympian and "King of the Saslong," Steven Nyman, who suffered a right Achilles tendon injury in August 2020 at Official Training Site Timberline Resort & Ski Area, is currently training with the men's speed team in Zermatt, Switzerland in their second of two late summer camps at the resort.
Olympian Travis Ganong was featured in the International Ski Federation's most recent Behind the Scenes feature. “For me, being able to ski for my profession is just a bonus.” As a young kid who grew up skiing basically outside of his back door in Tahoe, speed skier Travis Ganong found his passion in skiing, and that passion is stronger now than ever.

The USASA is proud to host the 2nd Annual USASA Golf Classic Sept 17th at McHenry Country Club! The golf fundraiser has two different ways to participate and support the grassroots development of U.S. snowboard and freeski athletes. This fun charity golf event helps support kids in sport, the development of future athletes on the world stage, and the education of coaches, judges, and officials. Participation in sports has been shown to be a critical component in the development of today’s youth.
While August and September typically mean travel to the Southern Hemisphere—including locations like New Zealand, Chile, and Argentina—for the U.S. Alpine Ski Team, the Team had to relocate and get creative for the second consecutive year due to COVID-19. Ski Racing recently caught up with Alpine Director Jesse Hunt, Head Men's Speed Coach Randy Pelkey, and two-time Olympic champion Mikaela Shiffrin to see how training is going on the glaciers of Switzerland this summer.
