New Date Announced for Sprint U.S. Grand Prix
Park City Mountain Resort has long been known as having one of the best superpipes in the world. By hosting top competitions and serving as the training ground to the best athletes in the world, the Eagle Superpipe is continuously ranked by industry publications as being the best of the best. In order to ensure the same quality halfpipe this season, we and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association have decided to reschedule the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix to February 1 – 2, 2013 (originally scheduled to be held December 21 – 22).
