Athletes

This year, we get to ring those cowbells for one of our own! Among those vying for titles will be U.S. Ski Team member and Carrabassett Valley local Sam Morse. Sam thrives in the speed events of Downhill and Super G, having won the Junior World Downhill title in 2017. He also took second and third in the U.S. Alpine Downhill Championships in 2017 and 2018, so his chances for a medal on his home mountain are pretty good.

Stay tuned for details on more athletes as we get closer.
