Swiss cross-country skier Peter von Allmen has accepted a role on his country's women's coaching team.
The 39-year-old Winter Olympian will mainly work with the training group but will also take on management and organisational tasks among the team of coaches.
Skiers he will work with include Nathalie von Siebenthal and Nadine Fähndrich.
As an athlete, von Allmen competed at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games as well as 70 International Ski Federation (FIS) World Cups.
He also appeared at the FIS World Championships twice.
In addition to cross-country skiing, von Allmen has experience in biathlon as he served as an assistant coach on the Swiss team.
He said he was ready for the new challenge within the national set-up.
"I am really looking forward to the new activity at Swiss-Ski," he said.
"I am convinced that with my experience as an athlete and coach I can contribute to develop the athletes and give them new inputs.
"Together with my coaches, I am already in the middle of the planning of the upcoming Olympics season."
Dario Cologna was the only Swiss skier, male or female, to win a medal during the 2016-17 FIS World Cup season.
The triple Olympic champion clinched bronze in the 20 kilometres skiathlon in Oberstdorf in Germany on January 3.
Swiss cross-country skiers failed to win a medal at the 2017 World Championships in Lahti in Finland in February and March.
The upcoming season will feature the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.
