Moguls Nationals held at Deer Valley

PARK CITY, Utah — Deer Valley hosted the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Moguls National Championships for the last three days in slush bumps conditions and spring break connotations. Differences from the World Cup were that Dual Moguls was back on the schedule and Aerials was off.

Parkite Conrad Rodermund works for the International Ski Federation (FIS) as well as National Freestyle Skiing for decades. As this event’s director, he told me, in an exclusive interview, “We were lucky to be able to move it from Palisades Tahoe to Snowbird last year due to COVID, and this year Deer Valley was kind enough to help out their friends at Palisades Tahoe and host it here.” There were snowpack depth issues in California. He added, “We didn’t have to rebuild much of the course leftover from World Cup here.”

Women’s Results:

  1. Tess Johnson
  2. August Davis
  3. Sammi Worthington 

Men’s Results:

  1. Oliver Smith
  2. Tam Ryan
  3. Charlie Mickel

The winners get an automatic spot on next season’s National Team.

Spectators included Olympic gold and bronze medal mogulist Hannah Kearney and four-time Olympian Taylor Fletcher and Olympic bronze medal mogulist Bryon Wilson. Trace Worthington was on hand to watch his daughter step onto the third-place podium and Park City’s Sean Smith announced the race like every Deer Valley World Cup for the last 20 years.

George McQuinn had the most dramatic crash in this year’s World Cup at Deer Valley, however, as seen in this video, he’s made a full recovery and skied the course smoothly this time around.
