Deer Valley to host extra aerials contest
The International Ski Federation (FIS) has announced that an additional aerials event will be added to the program at the 2016 Visa Freestyle International at Deer Valley Resort. The event will be a make-up for the canceled World Cup in Lake Placid, New York.
The additional aerials event will be held on the morning of Thursday, Feb. 4, prior to the afternoon’s moguls qualifications and finals. The second aerials event will take place in the evening on Friday, Feb. 5. Finals for both events will be streamed live, and an additional hour of broadcast will be added to USSA’s TV schedule for the weekend. The final TV schedule is to be determined.
"Strong partnerships and the state of Utah’s support for the 2002 Olympic legacy makes rescheduling World Cup events possible," stated USSA Vice President, Events, Calum Clark. "The USSA, our athletes and the FIS are very appreciative of Deer Valley Resort, the Utah Sports Commission and the Park City Chamber for their support of freestyle skiing and this great event. We are proud to have these partnerships as we look towards the 2019 FIS Freestyle, Freeskiing and Snowboarding World Championships."
The USSA would like to thank Jeff Robbins and the Utah Sports Commission as well as Bill Malone and the Park City Chamber of Commerce, for their support of the 2016 Visa Freestyle International.
