Despite Mother Nature’s best efforts, the Toyota U.S. Freestyle Championships kicked off Saturday at Waterville Valley, New Hampshire with individual moguls. U.S. Freestyle Ski Team athletes Jaelin Kauf and Cole McDonald were crowned the 2023 U.S. National Champions, skiing a challenging course made especially firm from rain earlier in the week. This marks Kauf’s fourth U.S. Championship title and McDonald’s first.

U.S. Nationals brings the whole American mogul skiing community together, with national team members competing alongside regional clubs. 

“Nationals is such a fun event, especially skiing with these younger athletes,” said Kauf. “The course was really firm and challenging today. But it was fun for our team going back and forth with those top spots all day.”

Kauf was joined on the podium by teammates Olivia Giaccio and Hannah Soar, who took second and third, respectively. “It’s a nice way to end the season,” said Giaccio of skiing to the Nationals podium.

On the men’s side, Dylan Marcellini and Landon Wendler went second and third. 

The weekend closes with Dual Moguls National Championships on Sunday. Watch live on Twitch.
