If They Want to Get to Sochi, They Gotta Earn it Here. Grand Prix Returns January 17 & 18.
The final Visa U.S. Freeskiing Grand Prix presented by The North Face stop before the Olympics will take place right here at Park City Mountain Resort January 15-18, 2014. As the last stop of the Grand Prix, Park City is honored to be the site of the naming of the official 2014 U.S. Olympic Freeskiing team. This last stop of the Grand Prix actually combines two full events in one weekend. Men's and women's slopestyle finals will take place Friday afternoon, followed by men's and women's halfpipe finals in the evening. The final stop of the tour will then take place on Saturday, following the exact schedule as the day before. That's right, you get to see two Grand Prix stops back-to-back!
This week we've already seen Simon Dumont, David Wise and Angeli VanLaanen training in the pipe and Park City All-Stars Tom Wallisch, Joss Christensen and Alex Schlopy making hot-laps in the park. Be sure to make it over to both the King's Crown park and the Superpipe on the 17th and 18th to find out which of your favorite skiers will be heading to Sochi in February. The finals and award ceremonies will also be broadcast live on NBC Sports Network.
