Meet the 2022 U.S. Paralympic Alpine Skiing Team

by Stephen Kerr

After two seasons of virtually no competition due to COVID-19, the 2021-22 alpine skiing season offered some hope that things were slowly returning to a normal routine for the U.S. team.

As skiers were undergoing final training in Sun Valley, Idaho, U.S. Paralympics Alpine Skiing named its final roster spots for the Paralympic Winter Games Beijing 2022. Para alpine skiing consists of downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom and super-combined in the sitting, standing and visually impaired categories.

This year’s team is made up of 14 men and three women with a mixture of youth and experience. They are coming off a solid showing at the World Para Snow Sports Championships in January in Lillehammer, Norway, where Andrew Kurka and Laurie Stephens each claimed two medals.

Here’s a look at Team USA.
