Do you know Maureen "Mo" Lebel (Truckee, Calif.), of U.S. Ski & Snowboard's National Training Group? If not, it's time to get to know her. A next generation downhiller and California native hailing from a family of skiers, Lebel grew up skiing on the Sugar Bowl Ski Team and later made the move to Mammoth Mountain Ski Team. Though she has struggled with injury and equipment issues, she came out victorious at season's end, and was crowned 2018 U.S. National Downhill Champion at Copper Mountain, Colorado.
