Women Make History
In December, SSWSC hosted the first ever North American FIS Continental Cup Nordic Combined event for women. The event attracted an international field and showcased the growing number of women in the sport. FIS subsequently announced the addition of a women’s World Cup circuit and the IOC continues to make progress toward the inclusion of women in the Olympic Winter Games. SSWSC athletes are poised to take advantage of the opportunity. Tess Arnone and Annika Malacinski both earned 7th place finishes at the Steamboat event.
U14's Go Pro
When the World Pro Ski Tour announced a stop in Steamboat, SSWSC alum and Olympian Chad Fleischer got to work with organizers to showcase the incredible junior talent in Colorado at the event. Eight SSWSC U14 alpine racers got to race on the pro dual course, complete with two 5 foot high pro jumps, against Ski & Snowboard Club Vail’s top U14’s. The team showdown was as close as it gets, with the Steamboat Wolfpack taking the win over their Vail counterparts and celebrating with a team trophy donated by 1964 Olympic medalist Billy Kidd!
