That's right... The Freestyle International Ski World Cup will be hosted by the Deer Valley Resort in Park City this week!
All events are free to the public, but there are VIP event tickets for Thursday still available. VIP tickets include "dinner in the VIP Tent, commemorative event gift and chairlift access within close proximity to the competition venue".
Festivities will begin on Wednesday, Feb. 1 on Lower Main Street in Park City to honor the 10-year anniversary of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Robert Randolph and the Family Band will be performing and the 2002 mascots will be making an appearance as well. There will be prizes for the most creative people decked out in 2002 Olympic clothing and memorabilia so bring everything you have! Who remembers those Roots® Team U.S.A. Berets?
