Heavenly to host the 2013 and 2014 U.S. Freestyle Championships

Heavenly Mountain Resort will play host to men’s and women’s aerials, dual moguls and moguls events beginning in March 29-31, 2013. The event will be staged on the resort’s famous “Gunbarrel” ski run, with the finish line near the California Lodge at the base area. Aerials will be held at night under the lights.

Heavenly has been known as a hotspot for freestyle skiing since the sport’s inception. Top freestyle skiers connected with Heavenly include Brooke Ballachey, Chris Hernandez, Ryan Hickey, Sho Kashima, Anna Park, and Glen Plake.

The 2014 event will be after the 2014 Sochi Olympics, so we will get to see some new Olympians competing at Heavenly.

The last Freestyle Championships were held at Stratton Mountain Resort in 2011 and 2012. Squaw Valley held the event in 2009 and 2010.
