U.S. Ski & Snowboard has announced the 42 athletes nominated to the U.S. Alpine Ski Team for the 2022-23 competition season.
Joining FIS Ski World Cup standouts like two-time Olympic champion and six-time world champion Mikaela Shiffrin, Olympic silver medalist Ryan Cochran-Siegle, and seven-time World Cup downhill podium finisher Breezy Johnson on the 2022-23 A Team will be River Radamus, who ended up ranked top-15 in the world in giant slalom and posted several top-10 finishes. Radamus also finished just off the podium in fourth in the giant slalom at Beijing 2022.
“It has been great to hit the ground running with the camps at our official training site in Mammoth, and see the potential this group of athletes has,” commented Alpine Director Patrick Riml. “We have a solid group of veterans who have yet to see their full potential, as well as a promising group of young athletes coming up through the ranks. I’m excited to see what they can do, and I’m even more excited to do what I can to help them reach their potential.”
The 2022-23 FIS Alpine World Cup season is scheduled to kick off for the men and women with a pair of giant slalom races in Soelden, Austria Oct. 22-23. The 2023 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships are scheduled for Feb. 6-19 in Courchevel/Meribel, France.
