"USSA is honored to have such strong World Cup venue partners as Aspen, Beaver Creek, Deer Valley and Lake Placid," said USSA President and CEO Bill Marolt. "The FIS World Cup events are the face of our sport globally and we're proud to be able to showcase our ski and snowboard sports at such great resorts in America." Each U.S. resort has representation at the FIS Congress. The World Cup events at U.S. resorts in the 2007 season are: ALPINE Nov. 25-26 - Aspen, Colo. (women's giant slalom, slalom) Nov. 30-Dec. 3 - Beaver Creek, Colo. (men's super combined, downhill, GS, slalom) FREESTYLE Jan. 11-13 - Deer Valley, Utah (men's and women's moguls, aerials*, dual moguls*) Jan. 18-20 - Lake Placid, N.Y. (men's and women's aerials*, moguls, aerials) SNOWBOARD March 10-11 - Lake Placid, N.Y. (men's and women's halfpipe, snowboardcross) * - Night event The super combined in alpine is a relatively new event for the World Cup, moving the traditional combined - i.e., a designated downhill on one day and two runs of slalom on another - into a one-day format with one run of DH and only one run of slalom. The Beaver Creek event will be the first World Cup combined of any format to be held for men in the United States in the 41-year history of the World Cup. The women had a traditional combined at Steamboat Springs, Colo., in December 1989. The FIS tour directors for each sport develop the various World Cup calendars together with national associations, such as USSA. Annual approval is by the respective sport committee and the FIS Council. USSA

Squaw Valley Institute
Event Seminar
THE FUTURE OF MOUNTAIN RESORT COMMUNITIES If you have concerns about the future of our region, you won't want to miss this excellent presentation. Squaw Valley Institute presents a timely talk by Jonathan Schechter, a frequent Tahoe visitor and long-time researcher on the changes going on in many communities like ours. You know the problems: lack of affordable housing for the workforce, traffic jams in peak season and extreme seasonal variations in the local economy. Mr. Schechter will discuss how and why western resort communities are changing and what are the implications for the future. How does our area compare to other mountain resort communities? Mr. Schechter will describe a process he has created for addressing the multiple challenges facing Jackson Hole and other resort communties. It is a process unlike anything ever done here--could it be something we should consider? Mr. Schechter is a long-time resident of Jackson Hole. He has founded and managed several non-profits, has written several publications, has a regular newspaper column, and is a community leader and very original thinker. This program takes place on Friday, June 16 at Resort at Squaw Creek in Squaw Valley. The presentation starts at 7:00 pm and a fun, no-host bar opens at 6:30 pm. A $10 donation will be requested at the door, and children and students with I.D. are free. The event is co-sponsored by Resort at Squaw Creek and Squaw Valley Institute. For more information, visit
