Cross Country Gold Team
The Gold Team offers year round programming for elite athletes with goals of domestic excellence and international success in the sport of cross country skiing.
Athletes must have race results indicative of national excellence and demonstrate the desire to attain international success. Interested skiers should contact Head Coach Chris Mallory, firstname.lastname@example.org for program information and application procedures.
The SVSEF Gold Team is designed to develop motivated elite athletes for National and International Success. The Gold Team program has a long history of cultivating skiers for future international competition by combining highly individualized coaching with a great team atmosphere. The Wood River Valley offers an exceptional array of foot training, rollerskiing, and on snow ski venues located in a stunning mountain environment. The Gold Team also serves as ambassadors for the SVSEF by promoting skiing and leadership within our own program through interaction with the SVSEF Cross Country youth development teams as well as throughout the larger community.
Gold Team skiers will coordinate ski equipment needs for the upcoming season with Head Coach Chris Mallory. Athletes and coaches work closely with individual sponsors to makes sure their needs are met. Team ski jackets, training pants, lycra race suits and hats are provided by SVSEF through sponsorship with Bjorn Daehlie and Podium Wear.
