Deer Valley’s Ambassador of Skiing, Heidi Voelker was a 12-year member (1985 to 1997) of the U.S. Ski Team and has competed in the Olympics three times. Heidi also competed on the World Championship Team for the U.S. three times. She has six top-10 World Cup finishes to her credit, including a third place finish in 1994. Heidi was the 1994 National Champion in Giant Slalom and finished her illustrious racing career with a third place finish in the giant slalom event at the U.S. Nationals in 1997.
Voelker began skiing when she was two years old, chasing her two older brothers and older sister through the ski areas of the Berkshires. Her obvious talent at the sport launched her into junior competition where she earned the World Junior Slalom Silver Medal (1987), and was named Junior Alpine Skier of the Year (1988). She moved to Park City, Utah in 1990.
Heidi Voelker became a “head gear” skier for Deer Valley Resort in 1995 and was named Deer Valley’s Ambassador of Skiing in 1997. As Ambassador, Heidi skis with groups, media and VIPs, attends special events and activities at the Resort, and can be seen shredding up the slopes frequently with her signature oh-so-smooth style.
In honor of Voelker’s accomplishments in the competitive ski world, Park City named a street near the Utah Olympic Park after her: Voelker Court. Heidi is also the first woman, and living person, to be featured on a Utah license plate.
Heidi resides in Park City with her husband, Tim and two sons, Lucas and Stefan.
