The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Rocky Mountain Division All-Star Team has named 24 Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club athletes to its program across the alpine, freestyle, ski jumping and Nordic combined disciplines. 

Only 63 athletes in the Rocky Mountain Division were selected to the 2023-24 team including 29 alpine skiers, 24 freestyle skiers and 10 Nordic athletes.

Athletes are selected to the team based on race results from the previous season and a challenging fitness assessment conducted in the fall. Making the team is one of the highest honors received in an athlete’s division. 

“It’s important first to thank the Rocky Mountain Division for their decades of work to support, recognize and promote snow sports in our region,” Dave Stewart, SSWSC athletic director, said in a news release. “RMD has been a close partner of the SSWSC and all clubs in our region, providing direct support to athletes, coaches, and officials that has raised the level of our sports.

“We are very proud that a remarkable 24 of the total 63 athletes named to this year’s All-Star roster are from the SSWSC, reflecting the commitment and success of our athletes across alpine, freestyle, ski jumping and Nordic combined. All of the athletes who have been named to the All-Star roster from across RMD deserve this recognition, and I look forward to following their results this winter and down the road.”

SSWSC athletes make up over one-third of the Rocky Mountain Division team with the club taking all 10 spots of the ski jumping and Nordic combined team, as well as five freestyle and nine alpine spots.
