FasterSkier has added a new dimension to the blogs section with the launch of the University of Utah Ski Team blog. This is the first FasterSkier blog to feature a collegiate team and we are excited to have the Utes on board! The Utah blog will also be unique in that it will consist primarily of video content. Several introductory posts are already up with more to come soon!
Collegiate skiing is a major part of the development pipeline for US Skiing and Utah has played a major part – both in producing top US skiers (i.e. Torin Koos) and bringing over fast European athletes that raise the quality of the competition and allow for the exchange of knowledge. This blog provides insight into US collegiate racing as Utah guns for the NCAA National Title!

The University of Utah boasts one of the top ski programs in the country. Last year the Utes qualified a full squad for the NCAA championships, placing 3rd in the nation. Historically, Utah has won 10 team National Titles and 63 individual titles. The team is coached by Eli Brown and Andrew Johnson, and managed by Kristina Casey and features 4 Norwegians, 1 Swiss, 1 German, 1 Canadian, and 9 Americans.
