The U.S. International Figure Skating Classic is a senior international figure skating competition. In some years it is part of the ISU Challenger Series. Medals are awarded in men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.

History[edit]

In 2012, the International Skating Union designated the U.S. International as one of the events at which skaters could achieve a minimum score.[1]

Organized by U.S. Figure Skating, the event was held for the first time in September 2012 in Salt Lake City, Utah.[2][3] Max Aaron won the men's title,[4][5][6] Agnes Zawadzki the ladies' title,[7][8] Kirsten Moore-Towers / Dylan Moscovitch the pairs event,[9][10] and Piper Gilles / Paul Poirier the ice dancing event.[11][12]

The event became part of the ISU Challenger Series in the 2014–15 season.
