Please note that we purposefully did not nominate alternates to the Tour de Ski team this year, as the U.S. Cross Country staff is concerned that a larger team might be harder to keep healthy given the unique nature of the Tour (i.e. two countries, 3 venues, and 8 competitions in 10 days), and our priority remains keeping all athletes and staff healthy during the pandemic.

The above discretionary selections were nominated by a 15-person working group that includes:

Dakota Blackhorse-von Jess                 U.S. Ski & Snowboard Athlete Rep

Tad Elliott                                                U.S. Ski & Snowboard Athlete Rep

Cami Thompson-Graves                       U.S. Ski & Snowboard XC Sport Committee Chair / Dartmouth College

Austin Caldwell                                      CU

Dragan Danevski                                    MEA

Erik Flora                                                 APU

Joe Haggenmiller                                    CXC

Chris Mallory                                           SVSEF

Pepa Miloucheva                                    CGRP

Pat O’Brien                                              SMS

Matt Whitcomb                                       U.S. Ski Team

Chris Grover                                             U.S. Ski Team


The nominations were then approved by a discretionary selection review group comprised of:

Dakota Blackhorse-von Jess                  U.S. Ski & Snowboard Athlete Rep

Tiger Shaw                                                U.S. Ski & Snowboard CEO

Bryan Fish                                                 U.S. Ski & Snowboard Sport Development Manager
