The US Ski Team features some of the best mogul skiers in the world. It makes perfect sense for them to be training at Wolf Creek, Colorado which has gotten some of the most incredible early season snowfall in the world! 

Wolf Creek Ski Area has been open for business since the begining of October, and throughout the past two months has already seen over 100 inches of snowfall. The resort is 100% open and is more than ready to host the 20 member US Mogul Team along with their world-class coaches. The team is going to hitting these stellar slopes starting on November 14th and continuing through the 19th. They’ll be out there making moves daily from 10:00am to 2:00pm with a day off on November 17th.

This weekend, Saturday and Sunday, November 12th and 13th, will consist of Wolf Creek and USSA staff prepping the course on Alberta face, checking terrain conditions, setting up flags, and building jumps. The coolest aspect of the training course will be its location directly underneath the Treasure Chairlift which will allow visiting skiers and snowboarders to observe the team practicing as they head up to the top of the resort to make their own tracks!

On Saturday, November 19, at 2:00 PM their will be a meet and greet on the outside deck of Wolf Creek Lodge in the base area.  Any guest of the Wolf Creek Ski Area will be able to meet ski team members and have autographs signed.

Olympic and World Champion Hannah Kearney (Norwich, VT) and Olympic bronze medalist Bryon Wilson (Butte, MT) will be attending along with other A team members including:  Heather McPhie (Bozeman MT) and Eliza Outtrim (Steamboat Springs, CO); Patrick Deneen (Cle Elum, WA), Jeremey Cota, (Carrabassett Valley, ME) and David Digravio (Farmington, ME).

 

B Team Members will include:  Heidi Kloser and Joe Discoe

C Team Members: K.C. Oakley, Ali Kariotis, Brittany Loweree, Mikaela Matthews, Brad Wilson, Bryan Zemba, Landon Gardner, Shane Cordeau, Sho Kashima, Nate Roberts, and Ryan Dyer.

Whether you come out to support the team or just to enjoy one of the most amazing mountains in the country — skiers and snowboarders visiting Wolf Creek can count on 50 inches of snow at the summit and 40 inches midway with 100% of terrain open for riding and gliding.  Ski the Most Snow in Colorado at Wolf Creek!
