REG is a highly valuable tool for US Skiing and a great partnership between US Ski & Snowboard (NGB) and NENSA (RGB). It is especially exciting time to be a part of US Skiing as we are currently ranked as the fourth strongest Nordic Nation for junior skiing — FIS Mark Hodler Trophy standings. Many of the athletes who have contributed to this rise have come through Eastern REG programs.
