SUGARLOAF, ME (March 28, 2017) – Laurenne Ross (Bend, OR) sustained a right knee injury during the giant slalom at U.S. Alpine Championships at Sugarloaf on Monday and is currently being evaluated. Her return to competition is undetermined.

Ross, 2017 super G national champion, finished the 2017 season on a high note with three top-10 finishes and two top fives across super G and downhill on the Audi FIS Ski World Cup circuit – including a fourth place at the Olympic test event at Jeongseon Alpine Centre. She will look to come back strong for the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang.


After a fun and wonderful season I am so sad to announce that yesterday, at US Nationals, I sustained an injury to my right knee. Further analysis is required to figure out exactly what is wrong, but I will not be skiing for at least the next couple months. I will keep you all updated when the time comes. I crossed so many finish lines this year -- some with a smile and some without -- but as I look back I can breathe deeply, because I have no regrets. It was a season for learning, for friendship, and for ambition. I had many ups and downs, but am so thankful to have made it this far in my career with all the love and support that surrounds me. I will tack this on to my list of injuries, move on, and come back stronger. I can't wait to step up to the challenges that lay ahead of me, and I couldn't do it without all of your support. Thank-you so much for being there, through thick and through thin, through the wins, the losses, the injuries, and the joy I will be back
