 Bomber Ski athletes Jeremy Cota and K.C. Oakley will kick off their World Cup seasons this week with a dual moguls competition in Ruka, Finland -- arguably one of most visually stunning places in the world to take a pair of Bombers.

 After a World Cup win at Deer Valley Resort last February and a ninth overall finish in last year's world rankings, K.C. Oakley starts the season as Team USA's no. 1 moguls skier. The young skier takes the place of now-retired Hannah Kearney in leading a promising American team another year closer to the 2018 Olympics. Read the full FIS women's moguls preview here.

 Jeremy Cota will return as the top American moguls skier with six top-10 finishes last year and a place on the podium in Japan. His consistency earned him a seventh place finish in the 2015 World Cup rankings, and having just turned 27, the young Cota is just getting started. A young German moguls team led by 23-year-old Julius Garbe, will also compete on Bombers. Read the full FIS men's moguls preview here.  

You can watch Jeremy and K.C. compete wherever you are in the world this weekend on NBC Sports, which will air the competition at 11 a.m. EST on the channel's Sports Live Extra. See details
