Mogul skiers sample Deer Valley venue

On Champion

Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation Freestyle teamers led by Renee Shapiro, RJ Bracken and Alex Lafleur led the way Feb. 9-10 during the Deer Valley (Utah) Intermountain Mogul Challenge event on Champion run.

Freestyle program director Andy Ware said, “The event is run on the World Cup mogul run called Champion, just one week after the World Cup was there. It is the longest and steepest course on the World Cup, with the same pitch as (Baldy’s) Race Arena, just longer at 250 meters.”

Shapiro won the F2 (ages 15-16) class of Saturday’s first moguls run, second overall, and was fourth in Sunday’s dual moguls. M4 (11-12) racer Lafleur finished fourth overall in duals, first in his class, and was sixth and the first M4 in the second moguls race.

M1 (17-18) Bracken placed third and fifth overall in single moguls, winning his class once, and was fifth in dual moguls.

Other SVSEF racers competing well were Wilson Dunn, River Curtis, Cutter Grathwohl, Alysha Herich and Hunter Diehl. Former SVSEF star Nic Hanscom of Park City, Utah won Saturday’s men’s moguls and was second in Sunday’s singles and duals.
