A U.S. Ski & Snowboard proposal to permit Olympic champion Lindsey Vonn to ski against the men was reviewed at the FIS Alpine Executive Board Tuesday night. Given that the proposal was for the 2018-19 season, the board opted to table the motion until it meets again next May.

U.S. officials were happy with the outcome as a first step to working with FIS on a plan that would provide Vonn with the opportunity and create a showcase event to promote the sport.

“There is support for the proposal among members of the executive board but also many points to clarify with FIS,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard Alpine Director Patrick Riml. “We’re encouraged by the discussion and the fact that we now have a formal proposal in front of FIS which we can review with FIS in more detail during the season ahead.”

That’s Chile, where the Andes offer the goods for top-condition preseason training camps for U.S. Ski Team alpine athletes.

Jackie Wiles (Aurora, OR) has an impressive resume. In the 2016-17 season alone, she nailed the top 10 in two FIS World Cups, including standing on the podium in the Altenmarkt-Zauchensee downhill. Now, the Olympian is hosting her first ski camp, the Jackie Wiles White Pass Summer Race Camp—three days of skills and drills and three days of gate training—at Timberline on Mt. Hood from July 7-13.

Want to attend her camp and learn to ski like Jackie? The camp is offering one scholarship for a young racer.

“I understand what it takes to keep skiing competitively – time, perseverance, physical fitness and a financial commitment that can sometimes be difficult,” said Wiles. “This year at my camp, I wanted to help a kid who may not be able to attend because of financial constraints.”
