Dear colleagues and those who only plan to become part of our ski cross family. I think it would be unnecessary to say that ski cross is attracting lots of attention from professional alpine ski athletes. This is all about human nature and our desire to explore. Ski cross brings an exciting new challenge, opening potential to grow and to claim the leadership.
Now you have the opportunity to build your competency and specialize in this new Olympic alpine sports discipline. Currently, there is a shortage of qualified ski cross coaching talent, and USSX heads the initiative to overcome this. We plan to train and certify coaches, arrange initial job placement with participating clubs, provide recommendations and collaborate with the coaches locally. Become one of the first ski cross coaches and make your mark in the history of United States ski cross development.
