Bryce Bennett (Squaw Valley, Calf.) picked up his fifth career FIS Ski World Cup top-10 result in alpine combined, leading four Americans into the top 20 Friday in Wengen, Switzerland.

“The top 10 thing is getting kind of old,” said Bennett, who finished ninth. “I knew after Bormio (where he finished 19th)… I was pretty upset with how that slalom run went and I knew that I had some better slalom skiing. I thought I did a better job (today). I had a little trouble up top, but I kept it rolling pretty well.”

Ted Ligety (Park City, Utah), who won the alpine combined in Wengen in 2014, just missed the top 10, finishing 11th Friday.  Ryan Cochran-Siegle (Starksboro, Vt.) was 18th and Jared Goldberg (Holladay, Utah) finished 19th.

France’s Victor Muffat-Jeandet won his first World Cup race Friday. Pavel Trikhichev of Russia landed his first World Cup podium in second, as Italy’s Peter Fill was third.

Up next, the men tackle the Lauberhorn downhill in Wengen Saturday.

Junior Worlds, U23 Teams Named

By Tom Kelly
January, 12 2018
Junior Worlds
Memories of a successful Junior Worlds in Utah a year ago still resonate at the Junior Nordic Worlds and U23 teams head to Switzerland later this month.

U.S. Ski & Snowboard has named a team of 36 athletes to its squad that will compete in the International Ski Federation's (FIS) Junior Nordic World Ski Championships and U23 Cross Country World Championships Jan. 28-Feb. 3 in Goms and Kandersteg, Switzerland. 

The Junior Worlds team has a strong mix of veterans including medalists Hannah Halvorsen (Truckee, Calif./Alaska Pacific Nordic Ski Center) and Hailey Swirbul (Carbondale, Colo./Univ. of Alaska-Anchorage) from last year's cross country team and Youth Olympic Games nordic combined silver medalist from 2016 Ben Loomis (Eau Claire, Wis./Flying Eagles Ski Club).

The championships will also be a first for women's nordic combined, with a debut test event. FIS added nordic combined last spring, with subsequent addition of a U.S. Ski & Snowboard national championship. Tess Arnone, 15, of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club will enter the test event for the USA.

Cross country athletes were chosen from domestic selection events including the L.L.Bean U.S. Cross Country Championships in early January at Anchorage as well as selection events for ski jumping and nordic combined at both Steamboat Springs and the Utah Olympic Park.

The Junior Worlds cross country team is coming off a double medal last year in Utah. Remaining from that bronze medal winning relay team are Halvorsen and Swirbul. It will be Swirbul's third Junior Worlds and second for Halvorsen.

The jumping team will be led by Casey Larson (Barrington, Ill./Norge Ski Club), who scored a top 10 in last year's Junior Worlds, making his third appearance in the international event. Loomis, making his third Junior Worlds appearance, and Steven Schumann (Park City, Utah/Park City Ski & Snowboard) also had top 10s last season at Junior Worlds.

"Having proven leaders like Hannah and Hailey will be a big asset for us in showing the way for younger skiers," said U.S. Cross Country Ski Team Development Coach Bryan Fish. "We had a very strong qualifying series at U.S. Championships and the team is heading to Switzerland with confidence."

"We have seen a lot of progress from all of the women on the team this year and we feel the team is getting stronger as a whole," said USA Nordic Coach Blake Hughes. "We are excited to get over to Europe and continue their growth as international competitors." The women's team will get its first taste of World Cup experience in Ljubno, Slovenia the weekend before Junior Worlds. 

The men's jumping team has a blend of rookies and veterans. "It's great to see that Andy (Urlaub) and Hunter (Gibson) could step up their game this year and qualify for the team," added Hughes. "They are all excited to get over to Europe and compete with their international peers." Casey Larson will remain on the Continental Cup tour, meeting up with his teammates in Kandersteg. The rest of the team will stay stateside the next few weeks to compete in U.S. Cup competitions at the Flying Eagles Ski Club in Eau Claire, Wis., Norge Ski Club in Fox River Grove, Ill., and Ishpeming Ski Club in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It will be the 132nd consecutive annual contest at Ishpeming's Suicide Bowl.

The World Juniors combined team has really stepped up with Loomis, Schumann and Jared Shumate (Park City, Utah/Park City Ski & Snowboard) all competing well for their age on the Continental Cup tour. The battle for fourth spot on the team was intense, with Tucker Hoefler winning a World Juniors qualifier to grab a berth on the team.

The team will do a pre-Championships camp in Oberstorf, Germany beginning January 22 then move to Kandersteg for official training that begins on January 28.

The U23 cross country team is a very seasoned group of racers with only two athletes who have not been on a past Junior Worlds team (Lydia Blanchet and Andrew Egger). The team also includes Junior Worlds medalist Julia Kern (Waltham, Mass./Stratton Mountain School). Kern has competed on the entire first period of the World Cup tour to gain experience leading up to the U23 World Championships.

Fish anticipates the freestyle sprint to be a strong event for both the U23 and Junior Worlds teams. First year U23 athlete Zak Zetterson (Bloomington, Minn./Northern Michigan University) was fourth overall at the L.L.Bean U.S. Cross Country Championships. Ian Torchia (Marquette, Mich./Northern Michigan University) should be strong in distance races. Torchia won the Silver Star NorAm Cup 15k freestyle in December and was the top U23 in the 30k classic mass start at U.S. Championships.

The event is split between Ulrichen near Goms, in the upper Valais region of south central Switzerland, for cross country and Kandersteg, in the Bernese Oberland, for ski jumping and nordic combined. The cross country venue lies at around 4,400 feet above sea level with the jump slightly lower. The famed Lötschberg jump in Kandersteg dates back 1920 and has gone through many iterations. A completely new jumping complex was built over the last decade, opening in 2016. The Goms Nordic Centre in Ulrichen is a popular trail network located in a high alpine valley along Switzerland's famous Glacier Express rail line.

All events will be streamed live through the Junior Worlds website at www.jwsc2018.ch. Also watch for content on Instagram at @jwsc2018.

The trip is partially funded by the National Nordic Foundation, an independent foundation that provides support for development programs across nordic sports, as well as USA Nordic, which manages national teams and pipeline development for ski jumping and nordic combined.

Kauf Wins, Schild Third at Visa Freestyle International

The American women put on yet another stellar performance on the second night of moguls at the Visa Freestyle International. After finishing second on Wednesday night, Jaelin Kauf (Alta, Wyo.) found herself on top of the podium, claiming her third-career World Cup win. Teammate Morgan Schild (Rochester, N.Y.) repeated her result from yesterday, finishing third and clinching her spot on the 2018 Olympic team.

Kauf’s journey to the podium was a bit different on Thursday night. She qualified first into the finals, but dropped down to second after France’s Perrine Laffont took her final run. Kauf’s super final run was fast and flawless, but she had to wait to see if it was enough to bear Laffont. In the end it was, with Kauf taking the win with a score of 81.37. She now leads the moguls World Cup standings by 51 points over Laffont.

“It’s been an incredible day,” said Kauf. “Qualifying first was definitely a confidence boost. I just kept trying to step up my run each time. Winning here in Deer Valley is incredible - I have my friends, family and my parents here. It’s unbelievable.

"I was just hoping that what I put down was better than [Perrine’s] skiing. I know she’s a really tough competitor and she put down a solid run. But my speed helped,” Kauf added.

Living in the moment and staying focused on her runs, Schild’s skiing was consistent from round to round. She was the only woman who threw a cork 7 in finals, a trick that has carried her to multiple podiums throughout her career. After joining Kauf on the podium twice this week, Schild will also join her on the team representing the USA in PyeongChang.

“This week puts Jaelin and I in a great spot,” said Schild. “To have these performances on home soil and put ourselves in a good position heading in to PyeongChang just makes it that much sweeter.”

Keaton McCargo (Telluride, Colo.), Tess Johnson (Vail, Colo.) and Avital Shimko rounded out the top finishes for the U.S. women in seventh, 11th and 15th respectively. Mikael Kingsbury was one again dominant on the men’s side, taking the win with a score of 88.80. Kazakstan’s Dmitriy Reikherd was second and Australia’s Matt Graham third. The U.S. qualified Joel Hedrick (Winter Park, Colo.), Emerson Smith (Dover, Vt.) and Troy Tully (Pleasantville, N.Y.) into finals, but they were unable to break into the super finals, finishing 13th, 14th and 15th.

The Visa Freestyle International concludes on Friday night with the men’s and women’s aerials competition on the White Owl jump site. Finals will be streamed live on nbcsports.com at 9:45 p.m. EST.

Fresh Snow and Sunshine at Snowmass Mountain

After a tough day of weather on Wednesday, seven inches of fresh snow and sunshine greeted the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team skiers and riders at Aspen’s Snowmass Mountain for a day of Toyota U.S. Grand Prix qualifiers.

The snowboard women kicked it off in the morning, with a hotly contested event leading to four U.S. women qualifying for Saturday’s finals. Arielle Gold (Steamboat Springs, Colo.) led the squad in first, with Maddie Mastro (Wrightwood, Calif.) second, Kelly Clark (Mammoth Mountain, Calif.) fourth and Chloe Kim (Torrance, Calif.) fifth.

The snowboard men competed in the afternoon, with snow beginning to fall in the sunlight. Greg Bretz (Mammoth Lakes, Calif.) and Chase Josey (Hailey, Idaho) qualified in the first heat, but the real event was the second heat, which stacked powerhouse rider after powerhouse rider. The U.S. stayed strong and dominated the field, with a clean sweep of the five finals spots. Shaun White (Mammoth Mountain, Calif.) led the team, with Ben Ferguson (Bend, Ore.) second, Jake Pates (Eagle, Colo.)—who recently surprised fans when he won the Dew Tour—third, Danny Davis (Highland, Mich.) fourth and rookie team rider Toby Miller (Carlsbad, Calif.) fifth.

The freeskiers competed in slopestyle qualifiers that saw some surprises in the results. McRae Williams (Park City, Utah) led the U.S., while The North Face Rookie Team skier Willie Borm (Chaska, Minn.) grabbed a spot over Olympic favorites. The real shock was 20-year-old Quinn Wolferman (Missoula, Mont.), who put down “the best run of his life” to make it to finals in only his second World Cup.

In the women’s slopestyle, both Maggie Voisin (Whitefish, Mont.) and Devin Logan (West Dover, Vt.) took spots in the finals.

Finals start Friday with freeski halfpipe and snowboard slopestyle. Finals stream live with a delayed same-day television airing on NBCSN.

The White Circus Returns to Speed

After a busy, full-steam ahead tech run, where Mikaela went five for five victories, it’s time for the White Circus train to change the pace a bit and hit the next stop on its journey. Next stop: two of the most challenging tracks on the circuit. Welcome to the Lauberhornrennen and the Kärnten-Franz Klammer. That is Wengen, Switzerland and Bad Kleinkirchheim, Austria.

The women's speed team enjoyed a sizable three-week break from competition, but they're eager to get back into the swing of things. To say they were antsy is an understatement. With holidays spent back home in the states and a return to snow with some of the best training they’ve had all season in San Pellegrino, Italy, this crew is amped to return to competition.

The women are so amped that Lindsey Vonn (Vail, Colo.) posted a picture on Instagram of herself celebrating with the caption, “The face I make when it’s finally speed week!!!” Vonn will lead a deep squad of speed women into a super-G and downhill this weekend while current downhill standings leader Mikaela Shiffrin (Eagle-Vail, Colo.) will take a much-deserved weekend off from competition. Shiffrin – who also has a massive 821-point lead in the overall standings, and leads the slalom and giant slalom standings – will rejoin the speed team next weekend in Cortina, Italy.

Vonn will look to build her FIS Alpine World Cup career tally to 79 victories, and therefore one step closer to the legendary Ingemar Stenmark’s record of 86 victories. She’ll battle a diverse field the next couple of weekends, as the last seven World Cup downhill events have been won by seven different women – Vonn, Christine Scheyer, Lara Gut, Sofia Goggia, Ilka Štuhec (out with injury), Cornelia Hütter and Shiffrin.

However, Vonn will not only battle the diverse field – she'll also battle the conditions in Bad Kleinkirchheim. With snow then rain pounding the surface, the organizers have had quite the challenge prepping the track. Wednesday's training run was canceled, as the bottom of the course featured "death cookies" and "sugary" snow – certainly not ideal for downhill. Due to the conditions, the organizers and FIS have decided to move the super-G to Saturday and the downhill to Sunday. 

"It's a difficult situation right now with the way the snow is and the way they prepared the course," Vonn said. "I'm not sure if we're going to be able to get a race off. They're definitely trying as hard as they can, and we'll have to see what things look like at inspection and we'll take it from there. The top is good, but the bottom is not safe to race, so I'm going to have to see how things look and make a decision tomorrow." Vonn's focus remains on the Olympics, so she'll assess the risk and make a game time decision on her participation. 

Over in Wengen, the American Downhillers are in classics heaven on the fabled Lauberhorn downhill. At nearly three miles long, this track is a test of pure athleticism and stamina. To put this into perspective – it is over two and a half minutes of leg-burning pain down a 2.78-mile course with speeds pushing 100 mph. In fact, the top speed on the World Cup was reached here in 2013, when Frenchman Johan Clarey hit a max speed of 100.6 mph at the Haneggschuss, the fastest section of the track.

Though the American Downhillers struggled in the first training run on Wednesday, it is important to remember that athletes are using training runs to dial in their strategy for race day. Team leader and veteran Steven Nyman (Sundance, Utah) is feeling good and will return to competition in Wengen, though his focus remains on building towards PyeongChang.

Jared Goldberg (Holladay, Utah) and Bryce Bennett (Squaw Valley, Cali.), who have both found a new level of consistency and focus this season, both had strong training run results on Thursday, landing in seventh and 20th, respectively.

“I’m feeling good; I learned a lot in my first training run,” said Goldberg after Thursday’s run. “I was pretty all over the place. I’ve been here a bunch of years and I just started to put it all together today in the run. I think I still have a couple places I can clean up, but today was a much cleaner run. I’d like to ski the way I can and put this thing together, so I’m just trying to keep building off what I’ve been doing the last races and not expect too much and just have fun – because it really is a fun course.”

Though the weather proved to be challenging early in the week, with Tuesday’s training run canceled, Goldberg and teammates used the opportunity to play hockey – a Wengen American Downhiller tradition – and stay optimistic about conditions for the weekend.

“The conditions aren’t too bad considering all the weather, but that’s a pretty normal thing here,” noted Goldberg. “The course is just under three miles long and it goes from pretty high altitude – where the top is winter and the bottom is pretty soft snow. They’re salting on the bottom and the top is pretty much all winter snow, so a lot of different conditions as you go down, and that’s just what adds to the coolness factor of this race.”

The men will start the weekend off early with an alpine combined Friday, followed by the downhill on Saturday and slalom Sunday. Fans can look forward to watching Ted Ligety (Park City, Utah) – who has been training some impressive slalom – in Friday’s alpine combined.

Nolan Kasper (Warren, VT), who has been sidelined with an injury the last two seasons and was slated to return to competition in Adelboden, Switzerland, will be returning to competition in Wengen. His last World Cup start was Schladming, Austria on January 27, 2015. Keep an eye on Kasper, as he has one career podium from 2011 and has worked extremely hard to come back from injuries.

Fifteen Qualify for Slopestyle and Halfpipe Finals at Snowmass

By Courtney Harkins
January, 10 2018
USGP Snowmass 1-10-18
Jessika Jenson took first place in the women's snowboard slopestyle qualifiers at the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix at Snowmass Mountain.

Battling rough weather in the latter half of the day, the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix freeski halfpipe and snowboard slopestyle qualifiers went off at Aspen’s Snowmass Mountain in Colorado. Fifteen Americans qualified for Friday’s finals.

The women’s freeski halfpipe went off without a hitch, with Olympic gold medalist Maddie Bowman (South Lake Tahoe, Calif.) celebrating her 24th birthday by leading the Americans in second place. Brita Sigourney (Carmel, Calif.) was third and Olympic silver medalist Devin Logan (West Dover, Vt.) fourth. Carly Margulies (Mammoth Lakes, Calif.) also made it into finals in eighth place with a solid second run.

But thick fog rolled in and heavy snow started during men’s training. After delays throughout run one and before run two, the Americans stacked six skiers into the 10 spots. Aaron Blunck (Crested Butte, Colo.) led the U.S. Freeski Team men with an enormous 93.66-point first run and local boy Alex Ferreira (Aspen, Colo.) won his heat. Both chose to not take a second run due to conditions and high first-run scores. Also taking spots in Friday’s finals were Olympic gold medalist David Wise (Reno, NV), Birk Irving (Winter Park, Colo.), Taylor Seaton (Avon, Colo.) and Olympic silver medalist Gus Kenworthy (Telluride, Colo.).

The women were able to get their snowboard qualifiers off cleanly, with Jessika Jenson (Rigby, Idaho) snagging the top spot and Ty Walker (Stowe, Vt.) also made finals. Jules Marino (Westport, Conn.) and Hailey Langland (San Clemente, CA) did not qualify.

The men squeaked in their first run of slopestyle qualifiers, but the increasing darkness and snow stopped a second run from happening. Three U.S. men qualified: Red Gerard (Silverthorne, CO), Ryan Stassel (Anchorage, Alaska) and Chandler Hunt (Park City, Utah).

Friday’s snowboard slopestyle and freeski halfpipe finals count as an Olympic qualifier. Bowman has met objective criteria for the U.S. Olympic Team with two podiums and would confirm her nomination with a first or second place at Snowmass. Already qualified for the U.S. Olympic snowboard slopestyle team are Jamie Anderson (South Lake Tahoe, Calif.) and Chris Corning (Silverthorne, Calif.). Neither Anderson nor Corning are in attendance at Snowmass.

Snowboard halfpipe and freeski slopestyle qualifiers start Thursday.

Three Podiums for USA Moguls

By Caitlin Furin
January, 10 2018

The U.S. Ski Team put on an impressive show on the first night of the Putnam Investments Freestyle Challenge at Deer Valley Resort Wednesday evening. Jaelin Kauf (Alta, Wyo.), Morgan Schild (Rochester, N.Y.) and Brad Wilson (Butte, Mont.) all landed podium finishes in front of a USA home crowd with Kauf in second and Schild and Wilson in third.

Kauf continued to display her dominance on the Champion course, skiing clean and fast runs to land her third podium of the season. This finish secures her spot on the team headed to PyeongChang for the Olympic Winter Games in February and puts her back on top of the women’s World Cup standings.

“Coming into this event, I knew I pretty much had the spot locked up," Kauf said. "I had that confidence coming in and it’s incredible to be on the podium here. I want to clean up my bottom air for tomorrow, and I think I still have a little more speed to give.”

Schild, who won the Deer Valley event last season, was the top qualifier heading into the final round. She dropped last into the super final and had the opportunity to claim another win, but a few small mistakes dropped her to third. It was her first podium of the season and gives her one of two podiums needed to objectively qualify for the Olympic team.

“I think I’m moving in the right direction, especially with the Olympics coming up,” said Schild. “I want to make sure I’m building momentum. Tomorrow I’m going to keep my energy up, keep building through each round and stay precise with my skiing.”

After a strong finish in Calgary, Wilson was in fine form on his home course. He pushed the speed and skied clean through the middle section to land his first podium of the season and put him one step closer to making the 2018 Olympic team.

“I’m really excited about where my skiing is at," Wilson said. "It was a slow start to the season, but I’m starting to build to where I want to be and it’s paying off. I was able to throw one of my good runs today to land on the podium.”

Canada’s Mikael Kingsbury made history, capturing his 47th World Cup win and breaking the all-time moguls World Cup win record previously held by USA athletes Hannah Kearney and Donna Weinbrecht. Perrine Laffont took the win for the women.

Shiffrin Comes From Behind For World Cup Win No. 41

Victory 41 for Shiffrin

For the first time this season, Mikaela Shiffrin came from behind to win a FIS Ski World Cup race - her fifth-straight victory - in Tuesday’s evening slalom in front of 7,000 fans in Flachau, Austria. She also tied Austria’s Annemarie Moser-Pröll with 41 World Cup victories before turning 23.

Trailing Austria’s Bernadette Schild by 0.37-seconds after the first run, Shiffrin tackled the rough, choppy second run with a “nothing to lose” attitude and absolutely blew the doors off the competition.

“Tonight I was chasing in the second run and I knew with Bernadette – she’s skiing so loose – I had to go all out,” Shiffrin said. “I had nothing to lose.”

Schild settled for second, 0.94 seconds off Shiffrin’s winning time. Sweden’s Frida Hansdotter was third. Resi Stiegler (Jackson Hole, Wyo.) was the only other American to qualify for the second run and finished 26th.

“I haven’t really comeback in a second run and made a big jump like that (all season), and I sort of needed that for my confidence,” Shiffrin said. “Each race this year I’ve been good in the first run, but the second run I’m just sort of holding on. But tonight, it was a different story and I’m very excited.”

With her victory, Shiffrin added to her overall World Cup lead with 1,381 points. Switzerland’s Wendy Holdener is second with 560 points, and Slovenia's Petra Vlhova is third with 554 points. Shiffrin also leads the overall World Cup downhill, slalom, and giant slalom standings. However, will not participate in this weekend’s speed series in Bad Kleinkirchheim, Austria, opting to take a much-needed rest after competing in 10 races over the past three weeks – winning nine and finishing third in the other.

Up next, the women’s World Cup Tour moves to Bad Kleinkirchheim for downhill and super-G races Jan. 13-14. Shiffrin is planning to return to the World Cup circuit Jan. 20-21 with downhill and Super-G races in Cortina, Italy.

Golden Sweep for Patterson

By Tom Kelly
January, 9 2018
Women's Classic Sprint Podium
Caitlin Patterson proudly celebrates her fourth U.S. title in a week alongside silver medalist Kaitlyn Miller and bronze medalist Becca Rorabaugh.

Caitlin Patterson (Anchorage/Craftsbury Green) finished a golden four-race performance at the 2018 L.L.Bean U.S. National Cross Country Ski Championships at Anchorage’s Kincaid Park on Monday sweeping to a fourth straight gold medal. Her dramatic come-from-behind win in the women’s classic sprint final capped a run of four national titles in four races over six days. Reese Hanneman (Anchorage/APU Nordic) swept both sprint events with his men’s classic sprint. He edged APU Nordic teammate Tyler Kornfield (Anchorage/APU Nordic) by a mere two tenths of a second to earn his fourth career sprint title – two freestyle, two classic.

But the U.S. Championships belonged to Patterson, a 27-year-old from Vermont and formerly of Anchorage. She won all four U.S. Championship gold medals, taking three of the four races outright. She finished second to Sweden’s Hedda Baangman (University of Colorado) in Sunday’s 20k classic mass start event, but took gold as top American. These four races, and Monday’s race in particular, illustrated her mix of talent, strength, stamina, versatility, wit and grit. The classic sprint silver went to Kaitlyn Miller (Craftsbury Common, Vt./Craftsbury Green) with bronze to Becca Rorabaugh (Fairbanks, Alaska/APU Nordic). It was Miller's third medal of the Championships.

Patterson’s four titles matches the golden streak set by Anchorage native Kikkan Randall at the 2010 U.S. Championships, also at Kincaid Park. Randall went on to make it a five medal year winning the long distance event that March in Fort Kent, Maine.
 
“It’s hard to put into words,” said Patterson, who leaves Anchorage a six-time national champion. “Amazing. Beyond what I could have imagined.”
 
Her Craftsbury Green Project Racing coach Pepa Miloucheva wasn’t surprised, though, saying, “She worked hard for this and she deserves this. It’s her nationals,” he said.
 
Patterson’s younger brother, Scott, a three-time U.S. champion who won on opening day, was impressed, and humbled, by his sibling’s week. “It’s been pretty incredible to see, and she’s rubbed it in all week,” he said smiling.
 
Patterson arguably saved her best for last. In Monday’s lassic sprint final she was two ski-lengths behind University of Denver’s Jasmi Joensuu in the final downhill with just 200 meters to go. Using tactics she gathered from earlier heats, her familiarity of that stretch of Kincaid Park’s trails from her high school and juniors racing days, and some vicious double-poling, Patterson quickly overtook and then dusted Joensuu. Patterson came across the line with both poles pumping in the air, winning by two seconds (3 minutes and 39.58 seconds to Joensuu’s 3:41.94).
 
“When I passed her, I felt like I carried more momentum,” Patterson said. “And I got out of there as fast as I could.”
 
Not bad for a skier who claimed that she’d never won a big sprint race before this week. When asked if she’s a sprinter now, she smiled and said, “I guess so.”
 
Her brother Scott has been a believer for a long time. “She’s such a killer finisher,” he said. “When I saw her two ski-lengths back (on the final downhill), I thought, ‘Oh, that’s (nationals title) number four.’”
 
The Pattersons are South Anchorage High School grads and former members of the local Alaska Winter Stars ski program. After the Championships, both are hopeful to be teammates at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. Selections will be announced the week of January 22. This weekend she’s back to the World Cup in Germany.
 
Hanneman is hopeful for his own ticket to PyeongChang. He certainly beefed up his resume this week. First, he put up Friday’s freestyle sprint win. Then Monday morning, he clocked the day’s fastest classic sprint qualifying time, gaining him critical Olympic Winter Games points that are among the many factors considered in determining national teams.
 
Then Hanneman muscled his way through a gauntlet of hungry skiers in the quarterfinals, semifinals and final rounds. His biggest roadblock to the win was Kornfield, a tall sprinter with two classic sprint national crowns (2010 and 2012) and momentum from his exciting – and somewhat unexpected – win in Sunday’s 30k classic mass start.
 
In Monday’s final, Hanneman and Kornfield broke away from a tight pack on the last major hill climb and speedy downhill of the 1.6k course. It was Hanneman who popped up first into the 100-meter flat stretch to the finish line, with Kornfield behind him in the same tracks. As both double-poled furiously, Hanneman stayed just far enough ahead to negate Kornfield’s frantic finishing move. The win was decided by the length of a ski pole handle, Hanneman clocking 3:20.62 to Kornfield’s 3:20.82. Ben Saxton (Lakeville, Minn./Stratton Mountain School) took bronze.
 
“I couldn’t let off at all,” Hanneman said. “Tyler is cranking right now - impressive skiing by him all week. It definitely motivated me to just drive that thing so hard in the final. It was awesome.”
 
Kornfield, as thoughtful as he is competitive, said, “We’re at a point where Reese and I just kinda nod heads before the final and we know that it’s me against him now. Sometimes it's hard to be racing your teammates but like any training session, we just go hard, try to race clean, race fair, and go as hard as you can. And Reese had it today. I was trying to catch him in the end and didn't quite have that last push. But it was a lot of fun.”
 
The week’s events were extra fun for the host state of Alaska and its nordic ski community, clubs and training groups. All eight of the National titles were won by Alaskans or skiers with Alaska roots.
 
Monday’s hill-filled sprint courses mirrored the crazy-quick loop used in Friday’s freestyle sprints. The men skied a 1.6k course with the women going 1.4k. The course started at the south end of Kincaid’s stadium and immediately took a sharp, steep right to gain the top of the wild and winding Gong Hill area, which led to the chilly Frog Pond, briefly back near the stadium, and then to a sharp left on the backside of the Gong Hill. There, the women turned to the stadium while the men made an extra 200-meter loop before reaching the stadium. A big, sweeping turn and gradual uphill led skiers to a flat 100-meter straightaway and the finish line.

In addition to national titles, teams were selected for the upcoming FIS Junior World Ski Championships, U23 World Championships and U18 Nordic Nations' Championships, as well as points towards possible selection to the 2018 Olympic Team.
