The lights, the crowd, world-class competitors, and the exhilarating sense of history being made- The 2019 FIS World Championships are upon us! All Deer Valley events will be held under the lights at Snow Park, and each night will conclude with a fireworks display.
It’s an exciting spectacle of outstanding athletic achievement, but more than that, it’s an essential part of the competitive ski legacy Park City has sustained since the 2002 Winter Olympics.
If you’re not familiar with Freestyle skiing, it is one of the most impressive disciplines to behold. Athletes flip and spin while jumping or skiing down mogul-covered terrain. Aerial skiing was popularized in the 1950s by our very own Olympic alpine gold medalist, Stein Eriksen, whose graceful flips mesmerized the world.
The following is the schedule of events happening right here at Deer Valley Resort. All events are free and open to the public:

Park City is truly a hub for world-class competition and Olympic happenings. With so many opportunities to partake in the events and support our local champions, get out there and experience the excitement!
