The US Cross Country, Nordic Combined and Ski Jumping Teams have been operating on a flat or diminished budget for years. Powerhouse Nordic nations, our competitors, have budgets over 25 times that of the US Ski Team. As a result, the US Ski Team has limited resources to fund skiing development and pay the real competition expenses of America’s up and coming World Cup athletes. We have stepped in to fill a part of that void; to make sure that today’s up and coming skiers have the high-quality racing and training opportunities required to be successful in our sport – year after year.
The NNF’s mission is to support athletic excellence in developing nordic athletes in the United States.
