Squaw Valley to host Sprint U.S. Freestyle Championships

Posted By: The Ski Channel on March 18, 2009 12:00 am

Squaw Valley is set to hold the U.S. Freestyle Skiing Championships next week, and it should be a Hot Dog fest, true to form. The events will include Moguls, Dual Moguls and Halfpipe, and will draw members of the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team, including newly crowned World Champion, Pat Deneen, and World Cup moguls star, Hannah Kearney.

USSA held the Aerial portion of Nationals earlier this month at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City. Even without their aerialist counterparts, the freestylers are sure to please and stop all the shows. You might even see someone throw a "Kick-ass Blaster."
