Olympic medalists Alex Deibold (Manchester Center,VT), Seth Wescott (Sugarloaf, ME) and Lindsey Jacobellis (Stratton, VT), along with eight-time X Games gold medalist Nate Holland (Squaw Valley, CA), headline U.S. Snowboarding’s 2014-15 snowboardcross team.

Due to his last season's great performances at the Olympics with a ninth rank finish also Trevor Jacob (Golden City, CA) moved up to the A Team.

In addition, Mick Dierdoff is also on the up celebrating his debut with the U.S. Snowboarding team.

Peter Foley, Head U.S. Snowboarding Coach, said: "I am really looking forward to this season. I feel like in some ways we are reinventing ourselves as we start over on a new Olympic cycle. The challenge is to join together as a team and make another jump ahead, and that will be exciting to be a part of."

Here is the total squad Foley will work together with:
