A program created and primarily funded by the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation (SVSEF), the XC Gold Team is entering its 13th year of existence in the Wood River Valley. Composed of a group of the nation’s best post-collegiate athletes, the Gold Team trains year round in the mountains of Idaho, training sites across the US and venues around the world. Each athlete has his or her own goals for success on the SuperTour, World Cup and U23 World circuit, and as a team, we push each other every day to universally attain those goals.

Our Mission

The SVSEF XC Gold Team aims to achieve excellence in skiing at the national and international level while promoting and fostering a vibrant and active cross country ski culture at home in Sun Valley.
