Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation skier Molly Maybach is a 17-year-old in her second year at Wood River High School, but 2024 is shaping up to be a busy year for her after she was named as a Youth member on two United States biathlon teams.

Maybach earned her USA team selection based on points she was awarded during the US Biathlon Association's national team trials, a three-day competition in Minnesota that concluded on Dec. 31.

Maybach is one of four young women named for the world championships and one of only 3 American women selected for the South Korean Youth Games.
