In the first two episodes of The American Downhiller series, we explored the current crop of World Cup men making waves on the international race scene. Eventually, those athletes will retire and the next generation will have to keep the legacy alive. Paying it forward is critical to the American Downhiller culture.

To support up-and-coming athletes, retired World Cup star Marco Sullivan assembled an epic coaching staff to share its collective wisdom with the next generation of speed skiers. Hahnenkamm winner Daron Rahlves, current World Cup star Alice McKennis, U.S. Men’s Head Speed Coach Johno McBride and more converged on Mammoth Mountain in California for five days of speed-focused training with juniors, taking advantage of the state’s record-breaking snowfall during the 2016-17 season.
