COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. – Two-time Olympic medalist Kelly Clark headlines the eight-person U.S. snowboarding team for the 2010-11 season.

Clark joins Aspen Olympian Gretchen Bleiler, along with Olympians Greg Bretz and Louie Vito on a squad that will open the season next week at Copper Mountain, the opening event of the three-stop U.S. Halfpipe Grand Prix tour.

Others on the team are Clair Bidez, Kaitlyn Farrington, Elena Hight and Ellery Hollingsworth.

Clark won the bronze medal in Vancouver earlier this year to go with the gold she won in 2002.

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White is not a regular on the U.S. team, especially in non-Olympic years.
