PARK CITY, Utah November 12, 2019 – International nordic combined action is coming back to Park City, Utah December 13-15. The competitions will take place between two venues, the ski jumping portion will take place at the Utah Olympic Park and the cross-country races will be contested at Soldier Hollow.
A star-studded cast will be descending upon Park City for the Continental Cup. Headlining this lineup is a lot of American talent, two athletes in particular made their mark in last year’s event. Tara Geraghty-Moats (West Fairlee, VT) will be looking to keep her streak alive. Last year Geraghty-Moats won all ten Continental Cups she competed in and is currently the best women’s nordic combined skier in the world. Men’s team veteran Taylor Fletcher (Steamboat Springs, CO) will look to defend his home turf in the men’s event. Last year Fletcher finished 4th and 1st in this event proving his dominance in the cross country portion.
This year USA Nordic is putting an emphasis on the spectator experience. The highlight of the weekend will be Saturday nights event at the Utah Olympic Park. The outrun of the ski jump will be filled with vendors, food trucks, beverages, firepits, and live music. The doors will open at 5:00 pm so bring your friends and family up to the Utah Olympic Park for a night to remember below the ski jumps.
