  • Athletes will purchase their own airline tickets; with the itinerary to arrive to & depart from the appointed airport (likely Salt Lake City) at a designated time to coincide with the coaches’ itinerary (specifics will be posted here).
  • Athletes traveling with parents may arrange to meet the team in Jackson, Wyoming.

The team selection will be the top skiers of the U14 age group. Final number of skiers for this team will be determined and posted by January 16, 2019.

The Intermountain Team Selection is based on the six races of the ConocoPhillips Besh Cup series. Normally all six races are conducted, however, due to weather or other problems, it is possible that less than six races will be held. The number of a skier’s performances which will be counted toward selection will follow these specifications:

  • If 6 races are held, a skier’s best 4 of 6 results will be counted
  • If 5 races are held, a skier’s best 3 of 5 results will be counted
  • If 4 races are held, a skiers best 3 of 4 results will be counted
  • If 3 races are held, a skier’s best 2 of 3 results will be counted
  • If 2 races are held, a skier’s best 2 of 2 results will be counted

Ranking lists will be calculated as soon as possible after each Besh Cup weekend and will be published and posted to the Cross Country Alaska web site within 48 hours after each of race weekend. The final list will be presented at the final team selection announcement in Fairbanks following Besh Cup Race #6. The U14 list will show highlighted names of skiers who qualify for the U14 team.
