Conan likes his U.S. Ski and Snowboard athletes! Lindsey Vonn and Shaun White made their pre-Olympic rounds earlier this month and now Olympic silver medalist Gretchen Bleiler will take the Tonight Show set. Bleiler will join SNL funny guy Norm MacDonald and musical guest Dan Cummins on tomorrow’s show.

For Bleiler, it’s a quick stop on her way to Copper Mountain, where she’ll join U.S. Snowboard Teammate Louie Vito in training for the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix. “I am super excited to be going on the Conan O’Brien show. I think he is the man and I love watching his show,” Bleiler gushed. “It’s going to be an awesome experience to be on the couch myself.”

As for questions on the Olympics, Bleiler is ready. “I know we’re going to be talking about the season ahead and the Olympics as well as the Olympic qualifiers,” Bleiler said. “We also have something secret planned that would be unique and fun for the show, but I’m not sure if it will work out. Everyone will have to tune in to see.”

The program airs at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
