DEER VALLEY RESORT, Utah. — Deer Valley Resort welcomes the world’s leading mogul and aerial skiers to compete on its renowned slopes this week. The 2021 Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International Ski World Cup runs Feb 4 through 6, and will be the first World Cup competition in the U.S. this year.
The event will feature the first domestic Olympic Winter Games qualifier for U.S. Ski and Snowboard aerial athletes this Saturday. Unfortunately, fans aren’t able to cheer and spectate in person this year, but the competition will be televised.
“To mitigate the risks of COVID-19, this year’s events will be held during the day and venue access will be limited to essential personnel only,” said Deer Valley’s Director of Marketing, Coleen Reardon. “Although the competition will look and feel differently than years past, and spectators will not be allowed, we look forward to hosting the world’s most talented freestyle athletes to our slopes as safely as possible.”
For the past 23 years, Deer Valley has played host to international and world ski competitions. In addition to the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, Deer Valley has been home to freestyle ski events including the 2003, 2011, and 2019 World Championships and 18 World Cups.
