US Ski Team Day


February 6, 2006

Park City, Utah (USST Release)—The U.S. Ski Team today announced that 75 resorts and ski areas have signed on to host the inaugural U.S. Ski Team Day, a promotional event to benefit U.S. Ski Team athletes. The program will take place on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2006, with some resorts launching the event Feb. 10 in celebration of the Torino Olympic Winter Games' opening ceremonies. Participating areas across the country will donate one dollar per lift ticket or cross country trail pass sold on event day to back U.S. Ski Team initiatives.

"It's exciting to know that skiers from coast to coast will be supporting our nation's athletes as the Torino Games begin, said U.S. Ski Team President and CEO Bill Marolt. "That energy will certainly help the Team's quest to be Best in the World in 2006.
