USSS National Championships
The US Ski and Snowboard Cross Country Skiing Championships are held annually. The dates for these championships have migrated periodically around the calendar, from the New Year’s holiday period to late spring to late-January. For the past several years they have taken place in early January.
These races are the premiere domestic competitions for US Skiers. In many years (but not always) they have served as selection races for Olympic, World Championship and World Cup teams, as well as for teams to the Junior World Championships and U18 Scandinavian Cup events. In some years they served to select the US Team to the World University Games.
