After a strong World Cup season that included several World Championship medals on home snow, the Swiss Ski Federation has named their team for the 2017-18 ski season.

“I am very pleased with the increase in athletes at the top of the squad, and we must continue to work consistently and continue to build strong teams in all disciplines,” said Alpine Ski Director Stephane Cattin.

She worked alongside the head coaches for men, women and juniors to select the athletes. Skiers like Melanie Meillard, Simone Wild and Neils Hintermann jumped from the B to the A team based on their World Cup finishes this season, while Alpine Combined World Champion Luca Aerni and Mauro Caviezel were promoted from the A team to the national team.
