Todd Lodwick, renowned World Champion Nordic Combined skier, will head to Park City, Utah this weekend to take part in the Continental Cup Nordic Combined event. This competition is a big deal for anyone trying to make it on the U.S. Ski Team.

Last year, this event was a big one for Lodwick, as it cemented his comeback after retirement and lead to a World Championship season for him.

Competition begins each day with the ski jumping portion of the combined on the big hill at the Utah Olympic Park at 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Then at 2PM, athletes go to Soldier Hollow near Midway, Utah for the 10K cross country race which will determine the winner each day.

Next week, Lodwick will head to Austria to join the World Cup circuit.
