Purpose, Selection Process and Commitment details to come…
Because the National Team purpose is different from the Worlds Team, it will be separate and may be larger and more inclusive. 2019 Worlds Team members will automatically be on the National Team.
The purpose of the World’s Team most closely represents the third tenet of USSMA’s mission – endeavors to enable United States athletes to achieve competitive excellence in the sport of ski mountaineering.
The National Team most closely represents the first and second tenents – to promote and grow the sport of ski mountaineering racing in the United States. The USSMA sanctions and governs competitive ski mountaineering racing in the US and promotes and fosters recreational ski mountaineering through access, resources, education and community.
