Staff coaches include US Ski Team Coach Pete Vordenberg, Hastings MN native Eli Brown, NMU Head Coach Sten Fjeldheim, UWGB Head Coach Bryan Fish, and CXC Program Director Yuri Gusev.

The 20 athletes and their coaches who will be attending the camp either qualified based on meeting stringent criteria over the past competive season, or were added through a petition and selection process.

Athletes not attending the CXC Regional Development Camp will have a great opportunity to participate in the annual CXC/Birke Big Summer Camp at telemark Resort on August 1-4. This Open Camp will provide an excellent coaching staff of top level regional coachs and US Olympic athletes.  It will offer athletes the opportunity to train with the athletes from different areas and participate in fun activities.
