U.S. freeskiing teams named
The 2016 U.S. Freeskiing halfpipe, slopestyle and big air teams, led by Olympic champions David Wise (Reno, Nevada), Maddie Bowman (S. Lake Tahoe, California) and Joss Christensen (Park City), were officially announced today.
This year’s team features a hard-hitting roster of decorated Olympians like Nick Goepper (Lawrenceburg, Indiana), Devin Logan (West Dover, Vermont) and Gus Kenworthy (Telluride, Colorado), along with rookie skiers ready to make their mark on the international freeskiing scene.
"We’re really excited about the continued growth and depth of the U.S. Freeskiing program," U.S. Freeskiing and U.S. Snowboarding Director Jeremy Forster said. "We have a great group of returning coaches and a super-talented group of athletes on both the Pro and Rookie Teams. I’m really happy to have Pete O’Brien from Ski & Snowboard Club Vail join the U.S. Freeskiing Rookie Team coaching staff. With the support of The North Face, our rookie team continues to be a huge development opportunity for the freeskiing athletes."
The halfpipe and slopestyle riders begin their competition season this weekend at the Dew Tour in Breckenridge, Colorado.

It’s been a rough season for Park City, but a taste of the postseason could pay huge dividends in the future.
