U.S. Ski & Snowboard continues its content partnership with Central Cross Country Ski Association (CXC) to provide a live streaming of all Super Tour events this season, beginning with this weekend’s opener in West Yellowstone, Montana. Races take place Dec. 1-2 beginning at 12 p.m. EST.

Events being showcased on U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s channels this season include the five U.S. Super Tour stops plus the 2019 L.L.Bean U.S. Cross Country Championships. All streams will be available for free, with the exception of the Craftsbury event.

“Cross-country skiing is meant to be a spectator sport”, stated Andy Newell (Shaftsbury, Vt), a past member of the U.S. Ski Team and owner of Nordic Team Solutions. “It’s so exciting to watch live ski racing and I think it’s so cool that Super Tours and U.S. Championships will be streaming with multiple cameras on course. The U.S. ski community has really come together in recent years and the level of racing is at an all-time high so I know people from around the country and around the World will be tuning in to see what happens.”

CXC’s live streaming, spearheaded by Executive Director Yuriy Gusev, has been a primary channel for fans and members to watch domestic cross country events, including past U.S. Championships, Super Tours and the American Birkebeiner.

Close to 200 racers are expected to compete this weekend in West Yellowstone, including Andy Newell who will be hoping to qualify for the World Championships through the series.  For more information on the Super Tour, including a complete season event schedule, visit usskiandsnowboard.org.
