The 2023 Toyota U.S. Alpine Championships presented by Stifel kicks off in just under a week. Top alpine athletes across the United States and beyond will compete on the slopes of Sun Valley, Idaho for coveted national championship titles. 

Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes in technical and speed events will race against young up-and-comers for the national titles in slalom, giant slalom and super-G. Current Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes in attendance include top seven World Cup slalom skier and World Champion Paula Moltzan, 2023 NorAm downhill title winners Erik Arvidsson and Lauren Macuga, plus World Championships gold medalists River Radamus and Tommy Ford, and more. 

“U.S. Alpine Championships is always a great opportunity to watch the young talent in the country compete against some of the best skiers we have right now,” said Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team Alpine Director, Patrick Riml. “It is a great event to close out a long and successful ski race season in the U.S.”

A number of Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation athletes, who are now current members of the Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team, will be competing on their home mountain. This includes Jack Smith, who recently finished second in the overall NorAm super-G standings as well as Ryder Sarchett and Dasha Romanov. Several current SVSEF athletes have also qualified for the race series, including Colin Hanna, Finnigan Donley, Kai Subith, Nils Galloway and Will Kogelman. In total 14 SVSEF athletes plan to compete.

U.S. Alpine Championships is an important race for the younger talent to see where their skills stack up against current Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes. 

The four-day race series will offer a variety of events for fans, families and spectators too. There is a sponsor village that will include live apres music in Warm Springs Plaza as well as an Opening Ceremony at Town Square in Ketchum with an athlete parade and a free concert by Lowdown Brass Band. Following each race, there will be an awards ceremony and live music also in the Warm Springs Plaza.

The events are free and open to spectators.  There are several VIP offers available to purchase, including a VIP four-day pass with exclusive viewing access as well as daily access to breakfast, lunch and drinks. Lift tickets are included. The second VIP offer is a VIP lodging package with complimentary food and beverage, a day of early access on Bald Mountain the day prior to the races, a meet & greet with athletes and a U.S. Ski & Snowboard and SVR swag bag.
