U.S. Ski & Snowboard formally announced the 12 athletes that will represent the United States at the U18 Scandinavian trip in Falun, Sweden, Jan. 19-21, 2024. 

The 12 athletes called up to the team were selected based on their strong results in the U.S. National Championships held earlier this month in Soldier Hollow, Utah. The qualified athletes who accepted their nomination will be given the opportunity to race against skiers from around the world in three different events, including both sprint and distance races. 

“We qualify this team at the U.S. National Championships and put the sharpness of that racing fitness to the test again, as a team, six days later,” said Stifel U.S. Cross Country Ski Team Development Coach Greta Anderson. “This year, we are at the iconic venue of Falun – the 2027 FIS World Ski Championships venue. For our Under-18 team, it is a great preview of where they could be competing in the future and this all is made possible from the generous support from the National Nordic Foundation (NNF) and the extended cross country community!”
