Gold Medal Gala Signifies Go Time for PyeongChang

Gold Medal Gala Signifies Go Time for PyeongChang

NEW YORK (Nov. 3, 2017) - A tense energy wafted across the starlit ballroom in New York City’s Ziegfeld Theater Thursday. A day earlier, the Times Square countdown clock ticked down to just 100 days until the opening ceremony of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang. As almost three dozen U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes gathered for the New York Gold Medal Gala, one theme was omnipresent: It was go time.

For an organization that goes up against heavily national-funded teams every weekend, the 51st annual New York soirée is a vital fundraising tool as well as an opportunity for athletes to exchange their snow boots for dress shoes and high heels to hang out with over 650 passionate fans. The gala raised well over $1 million net to support American athletes - the biggest night of its kind in Olympic sport. Next door in a unique ice bar at a local hotel, nearly a hundred more U.S. Ski & Snowboard ambassadors raised a toast to the team on its road to PyeongChang.

Disappointment as Men's GS Canceled

Disappointment as Men's GS Canceled

SOELDEN, Austria (Oct. 29, 2017) - A fruitful two weeks of solid training on the Rettenbach Glacier ended in disappointment Sunday, as wind and snow swept through Soelden forcing International Ski Federation officials to cancel the men's giant slalom. The cancelation delayed Olympic champion Ted Ligety's return to action.

Teams had been aware of the potential storm from weather forecasts that had been predicting high winds and snow. The race jury was on the glacier in the pre-dawn hours, making the final decision just prior to 7:00 a.m. local time - three hours before the scheduled start. Athletes were in their hotels down in the valley, preparing to head up to the race, when they received the news - frustrated at losing to mother nature.

SOELDEN, Austria (Oct. 28, 2017) – Kicking off the Olympic season and 2017-18 FIS World Cup, Mikaela Shiffrin (Eagle-Vail, Colo.) took fifth place at the annual giant slalom in Soelden, Austria.

Steep and relentless, the GS track was set tight and turny on the Rettenbach Glacier. Shiffrin sat in second place after first run and put it all on the line for second run. But a bobble on the pitch set her back and she couldn’t make up the time—dropping to fifth place.

"The biggest competition I have right now is with myself," said Shiffrin after the race. "I feel really good with where my GS is right now. I’m disappointed because I didn’t make turns today like I know I can. I’m now looking forward to the next GS in Killington—that’s really a cool hill and it will be great to be racing again in the USA."
