After crushing the U18 Championships on the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain, CO Squaw Valley’s Stephanie Lebby was all but assured a spot on the U.S. Development Team for 2015. She sealed the deal with a solid slalom result at the main event U.S. Championships later that spring on her home hill. A smattering of International experience earlier in the season was also a big boost. While she’ll train with the National Training Group for the 2015 season, she’ll for sure kick out of the training gate with a bunch of national team colleagues.

Athletes  »  Sam Morse

Carrabassett Valley Academy can claim that they helped guide Bode Miller into being one of the best in the world. Now they can also say they helped Sam Morse get on that path too. The young gun didn’t disappoint in 2014, obliterating the FIS race circuit to become the number one downhiller in the country within his age group. He also placed top 30 in both slalom and giant slalom at the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships in Squaw Valley. The results, coupled with a good work ethic, earned Morse both the Golden Ski Award (for the top junior skier in the East) and a spot on the U.S.

Dartmouth student and Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation alum Kipling Weisel banged his way through the 2014 season with just under a dozen NorAm top 30 finishes across three different disciplines. He then took that steam into the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships and finished top 25 in giant slalom. Coaches noticed; they also noticed his FIS points, which landed him among the top young prospects in the U.S. of A at the close of the 2014 season. Welcome to the U.S. Ski Team Mr. Weisel.
