Freestyle World Cup Competition Returns to Deer Valley Resort.

Freestyle skiing returns home this week with the 2020 Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International at Deer Valley Resort! The mogul and aerial skiers of the U.S. Ski Team are primed and ready to show their hometown crowd what they’re made of. As the only domestic stop on the FIS Freestyle World Cup Tour, this is a true homecoming event as many of these athletes call Park City and Utah home.

 

The action begins Thursday, Feb. 6 with moguls competition under the lights on Champion Ski Run, the champion maker. Competition continues Friday night, Feb. 7, with aerial skiers launching themselves off of the double and triple kickers on White Owl Ski Run to perform up to quadruple-twisting triple back flips. Dual Moguls closes out the weekend on Saturday, Feb. 8, with everyone’s favorite show on snow. 144 athletes from 19 nations are expected to compete on the same courses used during the 2002 Olympics, 2003, 2011 and 2019 FIS World Championships. This marks the 22nd year of elite freestyle competition at Deer Valley.

 

Members of the media are invited to attend the Opening Press Conference on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 4:45 p.m. in the Bald Eagle Room at Snow Park Lodge at Deer Valley. Athletes confirmed to attend will be available for questions:
