The U.S Freestyle Ski Team and U.S. Nordic Combined athletes are in Steamboat, CO, getting ready to rock. Tomorrow the athletes compete for a guaranteed ticket to the Olympics. The winner literally wins a ticket to Vancouver, for the 2010 Olympic Games, and doesn’t have to worry about any other selection processes.

The action kicks off tomorrow, December 23 at 9:00am with the Nordic jumps at Howelsen Hill. The mogul skiers will vie for their shot at 1:00pm and Big Head Todd and the Monsters will cap the day with a free concert at 4:00pm.

On Thursday, the aerialists gun for their Olympic spots, starting at 10:00am.
