PARK CITY, Utah (Oct. 12, 2023) - U.S. Ski & Snowboard officially announced the 10 athletes that have accepted their nomination to the 2023-24 U.S. Para Snowboard Team across all classifications and disciplines. 

The 2023-24 U.S. Para Snowboard Team is highlighted by two-time Paralympic gold medalist Brenna Huckaby and two-time Paralympic medalist Keith Gabel. Also headlining the team is recent ESPY Award winner Zach Miller, who took home three 2023 World Championship medals (one gold, one silver, one bronze) this March. 

The 2023-24 FIS Para Snowboard World Cup season begins in Landgraaf, Netherlands with two banked slalom races in November. From there, the team will spend time in Europe before heading to Canada to wrap up their season at the end of March. 

“It’s a really exciting time for the U.S. Para Snowboard Team,” said Erik Leirfallom, U.S. Ski & Snowboard Para Sport Director. “We have the most decorated Para snowboard team in the world.
