Jackson Hole Mountain Resort: Winter of Alpine Racing
(December 12, 2014), Teton Village, WY – Last Saturday, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) kicked off the Race for Resi race and après party, where almost $30,000 was committed to Resi Stiegler’s World Cup season. Significant donations from The Jackson Hole Ski Club, Kemmerer Family and private donors contributed to this large financial donation. Resi set the pace for the month-long challenge, where participants are encouraged to pay $25 to race against her time, while raising money for the World Cup Dreams Foundation.
Two-time Olympic Slalom racer and Jackson Hole native Resi Stiegler is funding her own World Cup race season this winter. Stiegler currently sits in the 11th position heading into this weekend’s race in Are, Sweden. Her goal is to podium at the World Cup Championships in Beaver Creek this February.
Next week, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and The Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club will host the USSA IMD Open Tech Race December 18-21, 2014. This race, originally scheduled to be held in Park City, was relocated to Jackson on Tuesday due to current snow conditions in Utah. “We are excited and thankful that JHMR stepped forward to support bringing this important race to Jackson on such short notice. Teams across the Intermountain Division are looking forward to racing at this incredible venue,” Bridger Call, Alpine Program Director at The Jackson Hole Ski Club noted. Jackson Hole Resort Lodging is offering race participants up to 30% off lodging packages, to book call 1-800-443-8613.
“This USSA race will draw nearly 300 racers, coaches and parents to our valley in mid-December, and hosting this race is a testament to JHMR’s commitment to Alpine racing. It is truly a great time to be a ski racer in Teton County and we look forward to continuing to grow our programs in partnership with the Ski Club to better our racing community ,” Adam Sutner, JHMR Chief Marketing Officer.
