U.S. Paralympic Nordic skiing team prepares in Bozeman

Paralympian Aaron Pike catches his breath at a training session in Bozeman.

Team U.S.A is getting ready to head to Pyeongchang. The U.S. Paralympic Nordic skiing team is in the midst of training for the winter games, and they’re doing so in Bozeman.

Whether it’s at the Lindley Center or the Bridger Creek Golf Course, the team is taking advantage of all the Nordic trails Bozeman has to offer. Paralympian Aaron Pike told NBC Montana it comes down to the variety of terrain and consistent snowfall.

"We've made Bozeman home for the last two years and Bozeman has so many different places to ski,” Pike said. “You've got places that are really flat, so for easy days that's really good for us and then you've got places that are extremely challenging. You can get kind of any terrain you're looking for."

Pike told NBC Montana he and 13 other skiers, will head to Pyeongchang March 1. The Paralympic Games begin March 9 and continue through March 18.
