Back for year 3, Canyons will play host to the Sprint U.S. Snowboarding & Freeskiing Grand Prix! Come check out the world's best male and female Snowboardcross (SBX) and Skicross (SX) riders as they race head-to-head here at the resort. Top athletes from around the globe are expected to attend, including top U.S. athletes Seth Westcott, Nate Holland, Jonathan Cheever, Lindsey Jacobellis, Faye Gulini and more! The course is located primarily on Doc's Run, off the Orange Bubble Express, with the finish line on the Ski Beach in the Resort Village. This event is free to the public at the finish, with a lift ticket required to access the competition using chairlifts. Guests can watch the event alongside the course on Doc's Run. Come out and take a few turns while watching the event! All events and activities are free to the public, including the Saturday concert with Patwa.

"Canyons looks forward to welcoming the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix back to Canyons for a third consecutive winter," said Mike Goar, managing director of Canyons. "We're thrilled with our longstanding relationship with the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association. This event allows us to showcase many of the great aspects of our resort with the dramatic finish line at Ski Beach, a world-class course served by North America's only enclosed heated seat chairlift (the Orange Bubble Express) and the home-snow advantage that athletes like Faye Gulini and Jonathan Cheever (U.S. Snowboardcross team) and Langely McNeal and John Teller (U.S. Skicross team) enjoy when they race here. " For media inquiries and credentials for the Sprint U.S. Snowboarding & Freeskiing Grand Prix event at Canyons Resort, please fill out this form  or contact us at cmartz@canyonsresort.com, 435.615.4843.
