U.S. Alpine Ski Team keeps Parkites Macuga, Nyman, adds Bigatel

PARK CITY, Utah —  U.S. Ski and Snowboard officially announced the 43 athletes of the U.S. Alpine Ski Team for the 2022-23 season on Wednesday. 

Two-time Olympic champion and six-time world champion Mikaela Shiffrin, 2022 Olympic silver medalist Ryan Cochran-Siegle, and seven-time World Cup downhill podium finisher Breezy Johnson highlight the deep list of talented alpine athletes representing the U.S. Alpine Ski Team this season.

B Team nominations are led by Ava Sunshine Jemison, Lauren Macuga, and Allie Resnick’s leap from the D Team based on their solid and consistent results during the 2021-22 season, highlighted by Jemison’s silver medal in the super-G and Macuga’s bronze in the downhill at the 2022 FIS Alpine Junior World Ski Championships. The 2022 Junior World Super-G champion, Isaiah Nelson, is joining the B-team crew.

Camden Palmquist, Jay Poulter, and Cooper Puckett are moving from the D Team to the C Team for the 2022-23 season, while D Team nominations include three fresh faces—Elisabeth Bocock, Kaitlin Keane, and Kjersti Moritz.

The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup kicks off with a weekend of giant slalom in Soelden, Austria, October 22-23 before heading to Zermatt/Cervinia, Switzerland/Italy, for a debut downhill on tour on October 29-30 for men and November 5-6 for women. The 2023 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships are scheduled for February 6-19 in Courchevel/Meribel, France.

This season will also feature four World Cups in the United States, including the women’s slalom and giant slalom races at the Heroic Killington Cup November 26-27, the Xfinity Birds of Prey men’s speed events at Beaver Creek Resort in Colorado December 3-5, the men’s tech series in Palisades Tahoe, California February 25-26, and a men’s speed series in Aspen, Colorado March 3-4.

“We’re really looking forward to the season starting and are ready to hit the ground running starting here in Soelden on October 22,” says Alpine Director Patrick Riml in a statement.

“This year, we have a solid group of veterans who are consistently improving and an extremely talented group of young athletes climbing the ranks throughout all disciplines. The future of alpine skiing in America is looking very promising.”
