Effective immediately, Ligety will be the resort’s Global Athlete Ambassador. The partnership was announced today during the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association’s Annual Partner Summit at the Center of Excellence in Park City.

Ligety grew up in Park City, UT, and at the age of 21, he shocked the world by becoming the youngest American Male to win an Olympic Gold medal in Alpine Skiing. He continued to dominate the men’s alpine circuit with five World Cup Overall GS titles and five World Championship titles. In 2013 Ligety became the first man in 45 years to win three events at the World Championships. The first alpine skier to achieve triple gold at a World Championship was none other than the legendary Stein Eriksen. Eriksen was Deer Valley’s director of skiing from the resort’s opening in 1981 to when he passed away in December.

In the 2014 Olympics Ligety won the first-ever men’s giant slalom gold medal for the USA securing his place in history as a legend in his sport.

“It is an honor to support Ted and his commitment to the sport of skiing,” says Bob Wheaton, Deer Valley Resort president and general manager. “Ted is an incredible athlete hometown hero and global inspiration. We are thrilled that he has chosen to represent the resort in addition to skiing and training here.”

Deer Valley was a venue for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games and has hosted two FIS Freestyle World Championships and 14 FIS Freestyle World Cups, making the resort a celebrated mecca for the international freestyle skiing community. Deer Valley will host their 15 the FIS Freestyle World Cup in February 2017 and their third FIS Freestyle World Championship in winter of 2019.

    Already a legend at only 31 years of age!
    Could this motivate a D.V. recreational race team? 😉

    Congratulations to the Ligety Family; a very special Clan!!

Tom JermannTake it from a Swiss, the portion is way too big at one time. By the time you are half way thru, the rest of the cheese is cold and rubbery. Also, we never cover our side dishes i.e. steamed potatoes or cornichons and silver onions. Sprinkle a bit of Paprika on the cheese.
