USA Skimo announced 21 athletes that will be representing the United States of America at the 2023 World Championships held February 28th through March 5th in Boí Taüll, Spain.

Some of these elite athletes have been competing in the World Cup this season and have achieved excellent performances so far. The remainder of the athletes have been competing at USA Skimo National Cup events in preparation for World Championships. They have made it this far by their talent, determination, and grit – but they can’t continue to do it alone. That’s why USA Skimo is asking for your help in funding transportation, room, board, and other related expenses for our team.

The US Team will have a good mix of seasoned veterans alongside many team members participating in their first World Championship. John Gaston and Tom Goth will be competing in their 6th World Championships. Grace Staberg and Cam Smith will be competing in their 3rd World Championships.
