Sunshine Letter | U.S. Alpine Championships great success

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Squaw Valley is always a special place for the athletes of the U.S. Ski Team. With its incredible Olympic history and the great, supportive culture in the community, Squaw Valley always delivers a world-class experience for athletes and fans alike.

In the months leading up to the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships, Squaw Valley was faced with a variety of challenges but never wavered in its commitment to excellence. Hometown heroes Julia Mancuso, Tim Jitloff and Travis Ganong were able to battle it out against the best athletes in the USA in front of huge crowds.

The venues were amazing and provided the perfect setting to inspire athletes young and old.

Squaw Valley delivered a great, one-of-a-kind event.

This year’s Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships will be held up as an example for years to come. I¹d like to especially thank Squaw Valley President and CEO Andy Wirth and the Organizing Committee for bringing together an exceptional event.

On behalf of our athletes, I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to Squaw Valley and the community for an outstanding U.S. Championships weekend.

Thank you for making this such a fantastic event.
