Park City has gone from being a mining town to a ski resort town, and after the 2002 Winter Olympics, to a world class sports town where the highest echelons of winter sports athletes make their way to each year, and the FIS Freestyle World Cup is yet another way we show the rest of the world how it’s done. Taking place February 1- February 10th in 2019, this skiing and snowboarding event held in Solitude and Park City, Utah promises to dazzle the spectators like never before.
