“What better way to show our support to the athletes than to provide accommodations to support the team who are training so hard and who are dedicated to bringing home the gold for the U.S.,” said Rhonda Sideris, Park City Lodging President.  “We are delighted to provide them with the comforts of our lodging as they train and compete in Park City.”

As the Official Park City Lodging Partner, Park City Lodging will provide housing and lodging accommodations for the USBSF members and teams during Park City, Utah events for the 2012/13 season, including the Park City World Cup taking place Nov. and Dec. of 2012.

“I was really excited when my National Team General Manager, Lenny Kasten, introduced me to the folks at Park City Lodging because I knew how valuable this kind of partnership could be,” said Darrin Steele, USBSF Chief Executive Officer.  “We are thrilled to partner with such a great Park City organization.”

Park City Lodging will receive logo placement on USBSF team jackets and premier logo placement on all National Team bobsleds for the entire 2012/2013 World Cup/World Championship Season.

“They are an established organization with great lodging partnerships in the community that will allow our athletes to stay in a comfortable residential environment while training and competing,” Steele said.  “It provides a feeling of a home away from home, which helps our athletes compete at their best.”

Park City Lodging offers accommodations in and around Park City, including Main Street, Deer Valley and Canyons.  With over 28 years of experience hosting guests for events such as the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, the Sundance Film Festival, the Park City Arts and Fidelity Jazz Festivals, the Deer Valley Music Festival and ski fanatics visiting the various mountain resorts, Park City Lodging was a natural fit for the U.S. team.

“This is such an exciting opportunity and we are honored to house the athletes and bring the spirit of the Olympic Games back to Park City,” said Sideris.   “We feel lucky to be a part of that.”
