Park City Mountain Resort on the TODAY show!
Posted: 05 Feb 2013 09:00 AM PST
It’s been a crazy few weeks at Park City Mountain Resort. Last week we hosted the US Sprint Grand Prix, where international super stars like Shaun White and Scotty Lago, battled for the gold in our Eagle Superpipe. The competition ended on Saturday and first thing Sunday morning, Jeremy Cooper, our terrain park manager, and two of his park guys hit the road for New York City with a 20 foot “I Ride Park City” rail strapped to the truck. It took them two and half days to get to New York.
To help NBC’s TODAY show countdown to the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi. February 6, 2013 is the one-year mark to the start of the 2014 games. To help celebrate, we are building a slopestyle course in New York City’s iconic Rockefeller Center, outside Studio 1A. U.S. Freestyle skiing team athletes, including Park City All Star Tom Wallisch and Bobby Brown and Keri Herrman will hit the course live on the TODAY show Wednesday morning beginning at 7 a.m. Ski Slopestyle makes its Olympic debut in next year’s Sochi Winter Games, which runs February 6-23, 2014. Park City Mountain Resort will host the 2014 Olympic Freeskiing Slopestyle and Halfpipe team naming event in January 2014.
If you live in the NYC area, come join us at Rockefeller Center and be a part of the action. Plus, you can meet some of the Olympic hopefuls and get pictures taken in a chairlift. The event is free and open to the public. Tweet your excitement using hashtag #Olympics2014. I hope to see you tomorrow in Rockefeller Center!
