U.S. Ski Team names White women’s speed coach

PARK CITY, Utah – The U.S. Ski Team has promoted Chip White to lead the women’s speed squad after 14 seasons as an assistant coach.

White takes over the position from Alex Hoedlmoser, who was recently named head coach of the women’s Alpine team after Jim Tracy stepped down.

The U.S. women had quite a showing at Whistler in February as Lindsey Vonn won gold in the downhill and bronze in the super-G, while Julia Mancuso captured two silver medals.

White said that while Vonn and Mancuso are leading the way, “everyone in this program has the ability to reach that level.”

Jeff Fergus will join White on the speed staff, moving over from the women’s technical side.
