Killington, VT - (News Release) - Killington Resort showcases America's best freestyle athletes including U.S. Olympians appearing in their first domestic competition since the Games at the 2006 Sprint U.S. Freestyle Championships March 23-26. 2006 Olympians including moguls skiers Travis Cabral, Michelle Roarke and Hannah Kearney, along with aerialists Eric Bergoust, Emily Cook and Jana Lindsey are just a few athletes scheduled to compete.
The U.S. Championships match the best U.S. Team athletes with hundreds of aspiring American skiers looking to measure themselves against world-class athletes as they aim for spots on the U.S. Ski Team.
