Day 3: Dual Moguls, dual USA women’s podium at Deer Valley’s World Cup

PARK CITY, Utah — Wyoming’s Jaelin Kauf got second place at the Beijing Olympics, second place on day one’s single moguls, and second place on day three’s dual moguls representing the US Ski Team at the Intermountain Healthcare FIS International Freestyle Ski World Cup. 

Day three’s winner is no stranger to Deer Valley’s podium, France’s Perine Laffont raced down the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic run champion, a feat which takes most day skiers tens of minutes, in mere tens of seconds. Kauf lost her line midway through the course of Saturday’s big final.

USA’s Hannah Soar, from Vermont, was third in the dual moguls in front of the Deer Valley night time crowd of 7,000 spectators, against Japan’s Rino Yanagimoto.

17-year-old Elizabeth Lemley of the U.S. finished seventh with the following placements in the dual moguls by the following USA women: Olivia Giaccio, ninth; Alli Macuga, 13th; Tess Johnson, 14th; and Kasey Hogg, 16th.

Perenial prolific performer Mikael Kingbury representing Canada, won the dual moguls beating out the day one, single moguls men’s winner from Australia, Matt Graham. Things went sideways for Graham in the big final.

With Sweden’s Walter Wallberg in third, America’s Cole McDonald, sponsored by Deer Valley Resort, a Wasatch Freestyle athlete, was the highest placing U.S. Ski Team man, in 10th.

The following USA finishers were: Dylan Marcellini, 17th; Dylan Walczyk, 18th; Nick Page, 19th, and rounding out the dual moguls top 20th was Landon Wendler.

The World Cup FIS Moguls tour moves on next to Italy in Chiesa in Valmalenco near the region where the next Winter Olympics will be held in Milan-Cortina in 2026.
