It’s no secret that the U.S. women’s Freestyle Ski Team mogul skiers have been on fire. The ladies racked up World Cup podiums all season long, and Hannah Kearney and Shannon Bahrke clinched Olympic gold and bronze medals (respectively).
The season wrapped this past weekend at Sierra Nevada, in Spain, and Americans Heather McPhie and Kearney topped the overall rankings for moguls, finishing second and third respectively. (The two women actually tied with 616 points each, and a competition comparison was used to determine the final rankings.) Bahrke squeezed in close, in fourth, and Canadian Jennifer Heil claimed Olympic redemption, winning the 2010 overall ladies moguls crown.
Now the U.S. Ski Team heads to Squaw Valley, CA for the U.S. Freestyle Skiing Championships (March 26-28), which are sure to be a hit. Last season the athletes enjoyed a Hot Dog the Movie-style party, and will likely do so again, especially with Hot Tub TIme Machine opening the same weekend.
