The US Selection Events are held annually to determine World Cup start for the US Ski Team, with a number of other nations also competing. The schedule was two single mogul events and a dual mogul event to finish the series of events.
In the first competition, Woods improved from a qualifying position of eighth, to claim his first major overseas victory. In the second event he backed up his day one win with another podium, a silver medal to finish an impressive week of competition.
Also showing strong early season form was NSWIS team mate & 2018 Olympian Claudia Gueli, who narrowly missed the podium on day two in fourth place. Gueli also made finals in the first event finishing 12th.
