Just announced, the defending Olympic Giant Slalom Gold Medalist Julia Mancuso will be training at Squaw Valley USA prior to heading to Whistler for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games.
Winter Olympic enthusiasts are invited to Squaw Valley USA to watch Julia train as well as participate in Julia’s Olympic Send-Off Party hosted at Le Chamois. A three-time Olympian and the 2006 Olympic Gold Medalist in Giant Slalom, Julia Mancuso is turning on the heat just in time for Vancouver, having scored some of her best finishes of the season in January.  Julia will be training at Squaw Valley from Friday, February 5 through Monday, February 8. The party and media reception at Le Chamois will begin at 3pm on Saturday, February 6.
Olympic Valley’s own Julia Mancuso went through the Squaw Valley race program, beginning with Mighty Mites when she was 3. Since then, Julia has been setting records and collecting medals at an impressive pace. The four-event athlete started World Cup racing and was a NorAm champion at 16, competed in the Olympics at 17, and started her twenties by capturing two World Championship medals and establishing a record for most consecutive U.S. Championships top-3s.
