Park City readies to host FIS World Championships
Town readies for skiing spotlight
In February, Park City will be the epicenter of the competitive skiing universe.
That’s when Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain Resort and Solitude Mountain Resort will host the FIS Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski World Championships. Over the course of 10 days, some of the best athletes in the world will vie for gold medals in more than a dozen disciplines, such as moguls, snowboardcross and halfpipe skiing.
The event is one of the most prestigious in winter sports, and spectators can take in the action at all three resorts. Fortunately, the schedule is spread out so enthusiasts don’t have to miss a single event. But even casual fans — or people who know little about the sports beforehand — will find the competition riveting. So clear your schedules — the World Championships are a heart-stopping spectacle locals and visitors alike will not want to miss.
