The Nor-Am Cup Finals are a level of competition below the FIS Alpine World Cup, which are being held March 14 to 18 in Are, Sweden.
Athletes compete in different disciplines including alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, freestyle skiing and snowboarding.
Local Race Organizer Donna Briggs says that provincial, regional, state, college teams and teams from private academies all over North America compete at the Nor-Ams.
“If they win, they have a very good chance at making the national team,” said Briggs. “It makes this year even more special.”
