We will try to answer a few of the obvious questions below:

Q: Will the U.S. Olympians be racing?

A: Yes, most (if not all) of the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic contingent will be racing at SuperTour Finals

Q: Does that include gold medalists Kikkan Randall and Jessie Diggins?

A: Yes, these will be Kikkan's last U.S. national championships, as far as we know.

Q: Will international athletes be racing?

A: Yes, a contingent from Canada will be making the trip, along with an assortment of European juniors and collegiate skiers.

Q: How do these races compare to the Olympics or the World Cup?

A: The U.S. Ski and Snowboard SuperTour is the highest level of racing in the United States. It is a feeder series for the World Cup. All of the athletes who raced at the Olympics got their start on the SuperTour, with many of them racing SuperTours throughout the year.
