Just a quick update that most of the US Skimo Team is in route to Claut, Italy for the Ski Mountaineering World Championships. Jari & I will be updating almost daily on the events by the US Team, so check back starting this Saturday.  21 Nations and over 250 athletes from around the world will be competing.

The US Team is comprised of the following athletes:

                                                           Chris Kroger (Jackson Hole, WY)

*** indicates they qualified but are unable to go to the World Champs.

Chris Kroger was first alternate for the team and gets to go because Brandon French can't go....

Unfortunately, only four women are going.
Ski Fast!
