Andraz Reich-Pogladic and Frida Svedberg also took home individual men's and women's combined championships.
"What a great year for Rocky Mountain College," Wolf said in a USCSA press release. "It was awesome to receive the award. I wasn't even thinking about it. Looks like my ski-racing career is complete and I can go out on top into retirement.
"What am I thinking, I'm having too much fun, and I have 10 new freshman recruits coming this fall. I think I will stick around a while and see what happens."
