FIS Freestyle World Championships
If you missed the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, or want to relive and experience the excitement of Olympic-caliber competition, your opportunity has arrived. Less then a year after the 2010 Games, Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort will host the world’s best. This winter Freestyle athletes will compete in the 14th FIS Freestyle World Championships.
The 2011 FIS Freestyle World Championships will take place January 30 – February 7, 2011, and will include aerial, moguls, dual moguls and ski cross competitions at Deer Valley Resort and the ski halfpipe competition at Park City Mountain Resort. The two resorts are located within 2 miles, (3.2 kilometers) of each other. The 2002 Winter Olympic and 2003 FIS Freestyle World Ski Championship venues will once again be utilized for moguls, dual moguls and aerial events at Deer Valley. The ski cross venue utilized during the 2008 FIS Freestyle World Cup will be used for the ski cross event. The halfpipe venue at Park City Mountain Resort was utilized as the venue for the 2002 Winter Olympic Snowboarding halfpipe event, the 2009 FIS Freestyle World Cup ski halfpipe event, and the 2010 US Snowboarding Grand Prix. Both venues have a wealth of knowledge and experience in producing world-class competitions.
Park City’s historic charming Main Street is conveniently located between Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort and will be the home of the Opening Ceremonies and celebrations for the World Championships on the evening of Wednesday, February 2, 2011. Both venues also look to host live entertainment and family fun activities throughout the competition week, promising fun athletic competitions and celebrations for all to enjoy.
