The CEO of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association says U.S. Olympic freestyle skiers Daron Rahlves and Casey Puckett are recuperating at home and should be ready for the Vancouver Games.

Rahlves was released from the hospital Sunday after dislocating his hip in a nasty wreck during his opening skicross race at the Winter X Games. Puckett, the Americans' other skicross Olympian, had a minor setback last week in his recovery from a separated shoulder after landing awkwardly during a run.

U.S. Ski and Snowboard CEO Bill Marolt said Monday he expects Rahlves and Puckett both will be "fully ready to go" by the time they arrive in Vancouver. Skicross makes its Olympic debut Feb. 21 with the men's race.

Former Olympians in Alpine skiing, Rahlves and Puckett are both still in search of their first Olympic medal.
