Pick up your 2007 U.S. Alpine Championship merchandise TODAY located in any of our retail locations at The Hotel Alyeska.
The U.S. Alpine Championships return to the slopes of Alyeska this spring, March 27 - April 3. The 2007 races will feature the country's best athletes, including Olympic gold medal winners Ted Ligety (Park City, UT) and Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA), along with other members of the 2006 U.S. Olympic Team and hopefully newly-crowned FIS World Champions. Alyeska Resort first hosted the U.S. Alpine Championships 26 years ago, in 1981, and most recently in 2004. It was at the '81 championships that Phil Mahre, fresh off winning his first overall World Cup Title, won the U.S. giant slalom title, while brother Steve won the Slalom. In 1989, Alyeska played host to the Junior World Alpine Championships where the U.S. team captured eight medals, including gold in super G and combined by Alaska racer Tommy Moe. The U.S. Alpine Championships are considered a right of passage for many young racers who are hungry for the opportunity to ski in front of the national coaching staff and at the highest level of domestic ski racing. The championships match the best U.S. Ski Team athletes with hundreds of aspiring American skiers looking to measure themselves against world-class racers as they aim for spots on the U.S. Ski Team.
