U.S. Freestyle Olympic Team

Deer Valley has had an exciting past month!  We hosted the FIS Freestyle World Cup on January 14 – 16, Sundance was in town and most recently the naming of the U.S. Freestyle Olympic Team took place at Deer Valley. I almost forgot to mention all of the amazing snow that we have received in the past week!

 This past Tuesday the U.S. Freestyle Olympic Team was announced here at Deer Valley.  We are very excited for all of the athletes that made the team; including 2005 Moguls World Champion and Deer Valley Resort’s own Nate Roberts.  The Olympics will open with women’s moguls in Vancouver on Saturday, February 13, 2010.
