Description:

The U.S. Snowshoe Association is excited to announce that it will be fielding very strong squads of US snowshoe athletes competing in the upcoming 2019 WSSF World Snowshoe Championships taking place as part of the annual La Ciaspolada Snowshoe Race in the Val di Non, Trentino Region of northeastern Italy on Saturday January 5th, 2019.

After the success the US snowshoe teams enjoyed at the 2018 World Championships in the Picos de Europa Mountains of northern Spain, US athletes will face the most talented and deepest race fields in all the Sport in 2019. The La Ciaspolada Snowshoe Race annually attracts the finest Winter endurance sports athletes from around the globe. With the 2019 event serving as the WSSF’s annual 2019 World Snowshoe Championship, the fields are expected to be deeper and more competitive than ever before.

2017 WSSF World Champion, Joseph Gray of the CO/US, who is also a two time World Snowshoe Championship runner-up, 2011 in Japan and 2018 in Spain, is likely to lead the US men’s team. Current WSSF Women’s World Snowshoe Champion, Michelle Hummel of NM/US, will lead a strong US women’s team. Our Junior Men’s and Women’s teams will be strong as well competing over a 5km distance. Nearly fifty US athletes, of all ages, many past US National and World Championship medalists, are making the trip to the Italian Dolomites for this amazing event.
