Deer Valley Resort is now the official training home for American freestyle ski athletes through at least 2022.

U.S. Ski & Snowboard, the Olympic National Governing Body of skiing and snowboard sports in the U.S.A., made the announcement Monday. Skiers will use the resort’s world-class moguls and aerial sites through the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Bejing, China.

“Deer Valley’s Champion run is known as the premier run of the Freestyle World Cup,” said Luke Bodensteiner, Chief of Sport for U.S. Ski & Snowboard. “To have it available to our team for training throughout the season affords us world-class on-snow preparation nearby our Center of Excellence and the Utah Olympic Park, rounding out the best training situation that we could imagine. Deer Valley’s world-class snow and terrain is a huge asset for our team, and they’re fully committed to supporting our vision of being best in the world.”

The resort has been the official training site since 2013. This announcement extends the previous agreement through 2022.

“Deer Valley’s long-standing commitment to freestyle competition isn’t only about hosting elite international competitions,” said Resort President and COO Todd Shallan. “We are honored to continue our relationship with U.S. Ski & Snowboard as an official training site for their mogul and aerial athletes as they continue their quest for Olympic Gold in 2022.”
