Lots going on here

It’s snowing here again, but there are lots of choices besides hitting the slopes, too.  Here are just a few!

From the Park City Calendar of Events: Nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture, this is the story of the electrifying battle between Richard Nixon, the disgraced president and David Frost, a jet-setting television personality. Reprising their roles from Broadway are Frank Langella, who won a Tony for his portrayal and Michael Sheen, who fully inhabits the part of Frost. Nixon remained silent for three years after being forced from office. In 1977, the steely, cunning former commander-in-chief agreed to sit for one all-inclusive interview to confront the questions of his time in office and the Watergate scandal that ended his presidency. Nixon surprised everyone in selecting Frost as his televised confessor, intending to easily outfox the breezy British showman and secure a place in the hearts and minds of Americans. But as cameras rolled, a charged battle of wits resulted.


Lots of Medals in 2009 for U.S. Athletes

The U.S. Ski Team had an incredible season in 2009.  Bill Demong won a gold medal in the 2009 World Championships.  His team mate Nordic combiner Todd Lodwick returned to the sport this year after a short hiatus to win two World Championship gold medals. Women’s ski jumper Lindsey Van won gold in the first World Championship women’s competition. On the cross-country side, Kikkan Randle won a silver medal in Liberec and Andy Newell took fourth.  They are now training and looking forward to the Olympics in Vancouver, heading to Whistler this week for end-of-season training at the Olympic venue.

On Feb. 12, 2010, the opening ceremonies will commence two weeks of competition on the world’s stage from Vancouver, where battles will be won and lost, but everyone will walk away an Olympian. The year-out date will find top U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding athletes competing from Vancouver to Moscow, battling for this year’s World Cup titles, but thinking, too, about Olympic medals 12 months from now.  If you can’t wait till then come to Park City and hear about it from some of the athletes themselves, or visit the Olympic Park and revisit some of the moments from the Winter Games in 2002.
