Deer Valley Resort is pleased to once again host the world’s best aerial and mogul skiers for the 2015 Visa Freestyle International. For the 13th consecutive year, Deer Valley’s slopes will cater to elite athletes competing in aerials, moguls and dual moguls January 7-10, 2015.

Hosting FIS Freestyle Ski World Cups, along with the 2002 Winter Olympic Games and two World Championships, has garnered the resort a reputation as a preeminent venue for the freestyle community.

“FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup has become a time-honored, crowd-pleasing event that athletes from around the world, visiting guests to Utah and Park City locals look forward to each year,” said Bob Wheaton, president and general manager of Deer Valley Resort. “We look forward to another amazing display of athletic ability on our slopes.”

Expected to compete in the 2015 World Cup are two Deer Valley® sponsored athletes and ambassadors, Bryon and Brad Wilson. With longtime roots in Park City, this brotherly duo, both of whom are members of the US Freestyle Ski Team, have accomplished a lot in their short tenure as Ski Team athletes. Bryon won the bronze medal at the 2010 Olympic Games and Brad has climbed his way up the World Cup rankings. Together, the two are looking forward to furthering their success at Deer Valley.
