The above discretionary selections were nominated by a 15-person working group that includes 10 of our top club coaches, a U.S. Ski & Snowboard athlete representative, and four U.S. Ski Team coaches, including myself. The nominations were then approved by a discretionary selection review group comprised of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Nordic Program Manager, the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Chief of Sport, and an athlete representative who is a member of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Board.

The above discretionary selection process will be repeated for each period of World Cup this season.

As always, if you have questions or concerns about this process, feel free to contact me directly.

Sincerely, Chris

Chris Grover
