A week to go: FIS Freestyle Worlds 2011
Just one year after the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, the top freestyle skiers in the world roll into Park City (USA) for the FIS Freestyle World Ski Championships. The 14th edition of the Championships will take place at Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resorts from 2nd-5th February and feature men's and ladies' aerials, moguls, ski cross, halfpipe and slopestyle events.
Deer Valley will host the moguls, dual moguls, aerials and skicross with Park City conducting the halfpipe and the newly added slopestyle. Both are considered premier venues for world competition: Deer Valley is consistently ranked among the top sites on the FIS tour year after year and Park City is one of the best free skiing resorts in the world. The two resorts were both venues in the Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games in 2002 and are currently in full preparation mode for the upcoming World Championships. Both slopestyle and halfpipe are under consideration by the IOC for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
"Planning for six events is no easy chore. Deer Valley and Park City leave no stone unturned," said Freestyle Program Director Todd Schirman. "The sites are being prepared and the schedule is amazing."
Festivities kick off 2nd February with an opening ceremony and concert featuring recording artist Julian Marley, famous reggae artist Bob Marley's son, in downtown Park City. Street dances and fireworks also highlight in-town festivities during the Championships as Park City embraces the return of high-level international competition to the area.
