Welcome Heidi Kloser, Ashley Caldwell and Nevin Brown to the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team! These three athletes are the newest addition to the team, qualifying for spots on the C Team in December. Heidi hails from Vail, Colorado, Ashley from Lake Placid, New York, and Nevin from Streetsboro, Ohio.

Ashley and Nevin won Selections events in aerials, and Nevin had never finished in the top-10 on the NorAm circuit until this showing. Said Ashley: “I was surprised to be that far ahead, but I’m just excited to be here and hopefully later in the season I’ll make it to the Olympics.”

Heidi is stoked to be on the moguls team, an accomplishment she has been working towards her whole life. “Historically, we’ve had some great success stories come onto the Team through our December Selections events,” said Freestyle Head Coach Jeff Wintersteen. “These athletes now have an opportunity to step up to the next level in their sport.”
