Park City is home to many of the top US winter sports athletes, which is not too surprising considering that the US Ski and Snowboard teams are based in Park City, Utah! NBC’s Today Show featured a nice segment this week in which Natalie Morales visited Park City to meet with some of the national team athletes, dance with them, and try a quick training session to take on the ski jumps at Utah’s Winter Sports Park. Fortunately, beneath these huge jumps is a nice landing in an aerated pool (the airflow from the bottom of the pool makes the water landings less brutal on the legs and body).
Check out this video on the NBC website to see Natalie take in some fun Park City moments. She proved herself a real “trooper” in learning to try jumps that many people would not go near….. and she got to feature some of America’s top athletes on the Today Show!
US ski legend and Park City locals’ favorite Picabo Street and her husband John Reeser welcomed their new baby boy on August 3. The couple’s second child, Dax Meyer Street Reeser, was born in Birmingham, Alabama. The 1998 Gold Medalist in the Super-G divides her time between homes in Birmingham, Alabama and Park City, Utah. While in Park City she skis the slopes of Park City Mountain Resort and other favorite Utah ski resorts. In addition to Gold and Silver medals in the Winter Olympic games, Picabo Street is also a two-time overall World Champion and one of the truly legendary US skiers.
We warmly congratulate Picabo and her husband on their new son and wish all of their family all the best.
