Deer Valley World Cup

Deer Valley hosted World Cup freestyle events (moguls and aerials) this January.  After skiing some powder at Brighton in Big Cottonwood Canyon, we took in the opening-night concert in downtown Park City.

Big Head Todd and the Monsters played on Main Street in Park City.  Last year it was the Cold War Kids.

The height of skiing fashion

After the concert, we were greeted by fireworks as everyone walked up Main Street to the bars 

The next day was a light powder day

At some point I found a pile of powder that claimed one of my skis.  I launched downhill onto my face but was able to walk away more or less in one piece.

As I skied back to my locker, I watched some skiers practice on the mogul course

We enjoyed watching the finals of the mogul competition.  Hannah Kearney dominated.

A skier rockets down the middle of the course, about 1/4 down from the top

The next night we watched the aerials finals (the red speck in the sky is a high-flying skier)
